Spring Cleaning Smoothie

Smoothie Ingredients

It’s that time of year again – spring cleaning!  A great time to organize and refresh your home. But what about your body? For me, this smoothie is the perfect fix for fueling me up in the morning and giving me a bit of a reboot. I like to add flax seeds, psyllium husks, and chia seeds to my smoothie for a little added fiber and nutrients. But feel free to omit these if they don’t appeal to you or sit well with your stomach (some people have trouble with them). This smoothie is still great without them!
