January's closing in, guys. Just over a week left to really cement your good intentions to get yourself in a healthier state (if that was one of your resolutions—if not, feel free to ignore the below). With winter dreariness in full force, we thought a bit of visual inspo with a virtuous, vibrant vibe might lift your spirits. Our Rx of choice? Gorgeous smoothies. Is there nothing more cortisol-reducing than a flip through a gorgeous 'gram feed of pretty bowls and jars of beautifully whipped-up, healthy, pretty sips? Ok, puppies and babies might do the trick, too—but you can make these smoothies your very own. Your friend's cute baby? Not so much.
A smoothie sets the tone for your day—it says "I'm healthy! I care! I've already had 5 fruits and veggies and it's not even 10 a.m!" With a start like that, even the grayest winter day starts to look a bit brighter. Here are a few that we're bookmarking to make up at home.
The pretty swirl in this banana, vanilla, blackberry + mint smoothie is a chia-based jam. Yum!
The prettiest palette ever. Who knew frozen blueberries could be so pretty?
Dragonfruit for the win.
@Earthyandy's tropical bent can't be beat.
What's black and white and yum all over? Chia smoothies, y'all.
The secret to that rosy hue? Raw beets.
All lined up and ready to go.
