Hello, Spring!! What an exciting time of year.
The birds are migrating back from their winter hiatus, flowers are starting to
bloom and activities are picking up again!
It is also a good time to focus on your health. That’s why I
reach for my favorite green smoothie. It’s chock full of fruits and
vegetables (notice I make the smoothie with the skin on both the
cucumber and pear to get the most fiber and nutrients out of them), with a
bit of creaminess from the almond milk and some nuttiness from the
seeds. All in all, it creates a drink that’s high in nutrients, fiber, calcium, and
Easy to make, delicious to drink, and good for your body!!
Remember: Go green, go healthy!!
