16 Sep 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 it’s time to shed that coat as we prepare for some summer fun. We love the convenience of a springtime smoothie that is packed full of good fats, protein and carbohydrates. Smoothies are quick, easy and have great bang for your buck. We don’t believe in the “smoothie” diet. But combining them with a well-balanced diet can be very beneficial for weight management.
This springtime smoothie is a great mix of carbs, protein, good fats and some sneaky green veggies in there also!

- ½ ripe banana
