Energy Boosting Smoothie

img_1718 It the most wonderful time of the year and the unhealthiest time too. But it doesn’t have to be.

If you’re like me, you pack in many activities and traveling during the holiday season. As you shop all over town, wrap gifts, decorate your Christmas tree and plan for holiday parties it’s easy to go to your local coffee shop and fill up on caffeine and gingerbread BUT…how is that going to affect your energy and waistline?

I want to help your holiday season to be filled with energy and feeding your body great foods so I’m giving you my energy Blaster Smoothie recipe below. It’s easy to blend in the morning and take in a thermos or mason jar with you as you travel, shop or drive around looking at Christmas lights (hello Griswold’s in National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation).

I promise you can get through the holidays with a jolly spirit WITHOUT gaining weight or feeling lethargic.

Here’s a tasty smoothie to make and take on the go.
