Summer is here! With the season of heat upon us, we are always looking for new ways to cool off. While ice cream is a delicious option, it isn’t necessarily the healthiest choice. Fresh fruit smoothies are just as delicious a way to cool off and supply loads of important nutrients and fruits for you this summer! TSSM goes crazy for smoothies this time of year! Here’s some of our favorite local spots!
The Daily Press
The Daily Press Juice Bar is located in Cohasset. They use fresh pure ingredients to deliver nutrient-rich juice, smoothies, and meals that are not only delicious and satisfying but make the body feel good!
They begin the day with a palette of fresh produce, grains, and plant protein to produce a long list of beautiful food and drinks that range even farther from smoothies to even breakfast bowls, sandwiches and tacos!
