On most mornings I start my day with a glass of warm water with fresh-squeezed
Then I have a large mug of green tea with almond or hemp milk.
By this time I feel awake and ready to make my morning smoothie.
This morning I rummaged through my kitchen and rounded up a few fruits
and super foods.
Plus, I added hemp hearts and ground flax seeds for essential fatty acids.
And nutty, creamy raw almond butter kicks the whole smoothie up a notch.
The result was this recipe for my “Good Morning Sunshine Smoothie”.
It was the perfect blend of sweet and creamy with a touch of spice to kickstart
Try it, you’ll like it!
