Springtime Smoothie

Springtime Smoothie

Spring is finally upon us, and how delightful it is to see the sunshine. Some of us may be hiding ourselves under a little bit of a winter coat, but its time to shed that coat as we prepare for some summer fun. We love the convenience of a smoothie that is packed full of good fats, protein and carbohydrates. Smoothies are quick, easy and have great bang for your buck. We dont believe in the “smoothie” diet. But combining them with a well balanced diet can be very beneficial on weight management.

This smoothie is a great mix of carbs, protein, good fats and some sneaky green veggies in there also!
