Summer is almost here! While the official kickoff of summer is still a few weeks away, at EleVen we are already feeling the summer spirit.
All year round, we’re always focused on striving to reach new goals and to look and feel better than our best. Summertime is no exception. In addition to vacations, beach days and barbecues, summer is also a great time to try out new types of exercise, wear some bright new summer clothes, and renew our focus on eating well.
We’re enjoying all kinds of outdoor summer activities, including biking, swimming, running, and of course, tennis. And, part of the fun is wearing our favorite new EleVen outfits. This summer, that includes our Core collection. We especially love the Core collection for summer because it features such bright, bold colors.
These bright hues remind us of a fresh bowl of summer fruits and, since one of our favorite ways to stay cool and healthy in the summer is to make delicious fruit smoothies, here are two smoothie recipes inspired by the colors of the Core collection.
The Core collection, including the Winners Tee, features the fabulous color we call EleVen Berry.
Here’s a quick recipe for a healthy berry smoothie from the Food Network:
1 cup frozen mixed berries
1 frozen ripe banana
1/2 cup low-fat vanilla yogurt
1/4 cup orange juice
1 teaspoon honey (optional)
Combine all ingredients together in a blender and puree until smooth.
The Core collection also has a great green, which we call Sharp Green. Check it out on the Core Performance Tank.
Here’s a fast recipe for a green smoothie from Prevention:
Kiwi Salad Smoothie
4 large Romaine lettuce leaves, washed and trimmed
2 kiwi, peeled
1 medium green apple, cored and cut into chunks
1 cup orange juice
ADD all ingredients to a blender, plus one cup of ice, and blend until smooth. Pour into 2 glasses.
