This is one of the secret to our daily smoothies. The more I educate myself on health and nutrition, the more I find all these wonder ingredients that are difficult to add constantly into our daily diet. No matter which kind of smoothie we make, we always add 2 to 3 Tbsp of this healthy mix.

Smoothies are back and we can’t wait to share our recipes with you!
-1 Cup strawberries

Blend on high for 45 seconds to a minute
