With the summer quickly approaching and the sun shining brighter every day, smoothie season has arrived early! Smoothies are not only delicious and refreshing, but they’re also a great way to get your servings of greens, fruits, healthy fats, and proteins. At Modern Wellness Bar, we offer various smoothies to suit your taste preferences and cater to all of your health and nutrition needs. Check out our five favourite smoothies to get in Vancouver below.
