We hope you LOVE this smoothie! It’s:

  • Creamy
  • Naturally sweet
  • Loaded with vegetables
  • Nutritious

  • Customizable
  • Uber delicious

This would be ideal for a quick breakfast or afternoon snack. Add any additional ingredients you choose for extra nutrition and taste. Cinnamon adds antioxidants and spice, which I adore. I also use maca for hormone balancing and feel-good sentiments.
