That sounds like a refreshing smoothie. Any ideas on what I could do to replace the blue berries. I love the mixer you used. It’s cute!!
Tara Noland says
You can use any berries you like but they won’t have the same brain power nutrients I am afraid.

I love trying new smoothie recipes and this one sounds super nutritious. I bet this would be awesome for after working out!
I love this for myself, our main smoothie machine is used by everyone and have certain dietary restrictions. This would be amazing for me to make myself fast drinks, I would get so much use of it. Thanks for sharing.
