Let’s be good to our bodies and minds and sip away stress by indulging in healthy smoothies…here are a few of my favorite recipes:
SPINACH COCONUT ELIXIR

1/2 avocado, 1/4 cup fresh spinach, 1 chopped apple
and 1/2 tsp. peppermint extract or fresh mint leaves
Puree all ingredients in blender and sip away to improve digestion
BERRY VANILLA BOMB

CHOCOLATE BANANA SURPRISE
