Spring Has Sprung. Here’s a Smoothie to Celebrate.

With the weather FINALLY¬†warming up and this life-giving season in full, glorious swing, let’s do a smoothie recipe!

Wanna cool off from a day spent soaking up the sun, while treating your body to essential nourishment at the same time? Sure ya do! So, whether you need to refuel after a workout, snack smart between meals, or stay energized and refreshed in the great outdoors, I’ve got a SUPER SMOOTHIE that will satisfy on all cylinders.

This blendiful thirst-quencher is also a ¬†nutritional powerhouse — featuring protein packed edamame, Omega-3¬†enriched avocado, antioxidant fortified papaya, and vitamin loaded spinach.

But, if those health benefits don’t quite tickle your taste buds, maybe the lusciously creamy texture will.¬†Trust me, getting more greens in your diet has never been so indulgent!
