When we’re looking for a quick breakfast, we often improvise and make a smoothie from the frozen fruit stashed in our freezer. But when we want to put more thought (even if it’s just an extra 90 seconds) into our morning routine, we turn to experts like author and raw-foods chef Matthew Kenney. At Kenney’s new Santa Monica juice bar and snack shop, M.A.K.E. OUT, smoothies like this vibrant blueberry number promise bright flavors and a sweet pick-me-up in one portable package.
