Lazy Berry Smoothie

This is super simple to make (kind of a cheat recipe, if we’re being honest) and has tons of vitamins; this is a great way to start the day or as a sweet dessert.  I have just finished my first semester of college, and I’m exhausted. Exhausted and a little chubby. Not chubby, honestly, but…
