Be Smooth Recipes!

Yummy!

Yummy!

For those of you that attended our BE SMOOTH workshop and learned a few tips about making smoothies, CONGRATS!

For those of you that could not attend… we missed you!

We are writing this blog to help you along your journey towards health and because we know that life happens. Whether you attended or not, I really wanted to share this with all of you.

I ask you all to remember that making smoothies should be FUN and HEALTHY.  You will notice that a few of the recipes are a fun twist on a not so healthy options. The Structural Green Smoothie is the first smoothie I made and that you tasted at the beginning of the workshop. As I always recommend, all ingredients should be ORGANIC. You should add protein powder to each smoothie that you use as a meal replacement if it is not in the ingredients list. Enjoy!
