This smoothie is truly one of my favorite’s of 2018. It blends so many delicious flavors and if you feel like adding superfoods it is a fabulous base. I even made this smoothie to travel with and if kept in a cooler or refrigerator, it tasted just as good two days later! That is amazing for a smoothie. Enjoy the recipe and if you make it, please let me know what you think!
