Summer is all about treating yourself, and there’s no better way to indulge than by having a refreshing smoothie. Depending on the fruits and vegetables that you choose, these convenient and colorful drinks can pack in a lot of vitamins and nutrients that will nourish your body and keep you feeling healthy.

“Smoothies are a great way to get your daily fruit and vegetable intake,” explains New York-based nutritionist Regina Fazzini. “It’s best to load your smoothies up with fruits that are high in antioxidants and protein-rich nut butters and milks to ensure that you’ll be full and focused after drinking.”

Need some fun, new recipes to spruce up your morning smoothie? Here are some of our favorite summertime-inspired smoothies that taste good and are good for you:
