Smoothies are more often thought of as a summer food, but these fall smoothies enhance your health while bringing you the more rich flavors of the new season. Our friends at Philosophie came up with these delicious recipes to cool you down, and a workout to heat things up!
The produce of the fall season includes heartier veggies and richer flavors. Beets, squash, and earthy herbs make their debut, but that doesn’t mean we have to ditch our beloved, cold and creamy smoothies. Especially after a workout, a cool, refreshing smoothie hits the spot like nothing else, even in the coolest of weather. These fall smoothies use seasonal produce to embrace the flavors of fall while still being outrageously refreshing. Give them a try! In addition to being delicious, they also have a long list of nutritional benefits. Gotta love the power of seasonal produce!

- On the monkey bars, hold onto the monkey bars and try to stay totally straight, while lifting your knees to you chest. Do as many reps as possible.
- On the monkey bars, do as many pull-ups as you can, or if you’re still working on your pull-up, jump up in an explosive moment, hang for as long as you can, and then slowly release.
- To work your triceps, face away from a park bench or chair, plant your hands down on the bench, supporting your torso. Keeping your legs completely straight and your heels on the earth, bend your elbows so that you go up + down.
- To get your heart pumping, jump up on the park bench or a big toy step and then jump back down, doing as many reps as you can.
- Travel across the park space while doing alternating lunges—you can keep your hands on your waist or at your sides, whichever you prefer.
- If your park has a balance beam, hold a narrow plank position for a minute (or more!). To challenge yourself, add slow + steady alternating leg lifts.
