A vegan version of the Indian warm-weather classic.
Seasonal fruit practically pours out of each grocery store and farmers’ market. Temperatures teeter between pleasantly warm and hideously oppressive. It’s summer and there’s no better time to embrace smoothies as cooling, nourishing snacks or even as meals. Blend yourself up some vitamins, minerals, and much-needed glucose with these recipes. Feel free to add chlorella, spirulina, or vegan protein powder as desired.
