This recipe will surprise you!

When I think of smoothies, I think of fruits and nutrients plain and simple.  So when I happened to receive an e-newsletter from “The Food Babe” stating that smoothies should contain less fruits and more vegetables or other food that contains less sugar.  Yes, I was a little disappointed but also intrigued.

This recipe was inspired by a smoothie recipe in a health magazine.  It contains less sugar and fruits and has an ingredient made me think twice…really??  Doubting that it could be that good, I decided to try it.  I finally made some slight ajustements to the ingredients to make it taste just a little sweeter and fun to drink, hehe!

This is great as a snack or when you feel sluggish, not very hungry but need more energy.
