NATURAL ENERGY SMOOTHIES

Posted on 15 July 2013

Energy drink (1)By day I am intern. By night I am interviewer.


For the past nine weeks I have been juggling two occupations, after a long 12 hour shift I would be lying if I told you I did not feel drained. It has been a challenging experience but as a result I have gained a new fond respect for individuals working multiple jobs just to keep financial afloat. I commend them! Nonetheless, my experience as an intern has been rewarding, learning new aspects of marketing and working with charming business, savvy women. Still, in order  to keep up with the demands of a real career job, I need loads of natural energy to sustain me throughout the day, when caffeine fails.  Since purchasing my magic bullet I have been experimenting and researching smoothies to try. So after a few taste test, here are my top natural smoothie recommendations for those  needing a daily dose of oomph during these hot and festive summer days.
