Recover From Homecoming with a Natural Energy-Boosting Smoothie

  • Kiera Morris making smoothie

October 29 – We’ve powered through a homecoming week filled with fun, friends, cheering on our beloved Panther football team, and celebrating Prairie View A&M University’s storied history. The week we’ve anticipated all semester has finally come and gone and you’ve enjoyed yourselves to the fullest, as you should. However; now, you may feel a little weak after so many activities, it’s time to re-focus as we finish out the semester and I have the perfect drink to bring you back to 100-percent! Drink my Replenishing Smoothie to replace all of the nutrients, water, and electrolytes you may have lost throughout the week. Many of the ingredients are natural energy boosters, and a few contain electrolytes. Enjoy and finish strong!
