I have fallen in love with smoothies again, I say that because smoothies used to be a HUGE of our diet but they were loosing their appeal after years of having them. Now days we start our days with raw oatmeal (during the week) or hot steel-cut oats, 10 grain and our newest amaranth porridge (on the weekends). But a couple of weeks ago I started to mix up some fun new creations, as well as this week wanting to cleanse our systems and shake things up a bit. This recipe is adapted from whole living’s 28 day challenge. Smoothies are a great way to get an abundance of vitamins, minerals and a big chunk of veggies/fruit servings in one sitting-yay! Enjoy!
