Green smoothie for green smoothie newbies

green-smoothie-for-green-smoothie-newbies

Don’t knock it till you try it. I rolled my eyes at the green smoothie fanatics for a long time. That is, until I decided to try it for myself. Then BAM. I converted too. They made me feel good, satiated and energized all morning long. This smoothie is a great re-set if you’re feeling sluggish on Monday morning or maybe overindulged the day before. I use only organic fruits and veggies. Grab your blender, throw this all in and I promise you will be riding high all morning long.

Coconut Peanut Butter Power Balls

Small, raw and delicious. These little balls are packed with goodness, flavour and protein. I like to store them in the freezer to nibble on when craving something sweet. 15 minutes to make from start to finish…the hardest part is waiting for them to set in the fridge or freezer. These are a staple made at least twice a month in our house. Hope you like them as much as we do.
