The first nice spring days can often be spoiled by colds and flus or by „spring fatigue“ symptoms, as our bodies take time to adjust to the season change.
Delicious vegetable and fruit drinks such as smoothies are an excellent source of refreshment in warmer days when the body needs something more than just ordinary drinks, and they will also strengthen the immune system and help fight viruses and bacteria.
The end result is the health in the cup!
