Homemade or Store-Bought?

Recently, I’ve noticed more people on the nutrition bandwagon in my neighborhood. Several new juice and smoothie bars have opened up all over town. So, since I consider myself a NutriBullet Blasting connoisseur, I thought I would check out the buzz around my hood. Sad to say – it was disappointing.

I wanted a drink that I could sit back, read a book and enjoy the sun with [...]
