Sunburst Smoothie Recipe

Hello everyone! April is in full spring and I am beyond excited to have warmer weather. We all know this time of year is dreadful. We pull out last year's spring wardrobe and realize that nothing fits the same. In that moment, we begin to regret all the horrible things we ate over the course of the winter. Trust me, you are not alone. During the winter, chocolate and ice cream are my weaknesses. I just recently fell in love with the Talenti gelato. It is absolutely dee-licious. But now it is time to cut back on the junk and refresh our minds and bodies with healthy vibes. This super easy sunburst smoothie is ideal for breakfast, lunch, dinner or snack time. No matter the meal you decide to drink this for or with, you will feel rejuvenated and energized.  This smoothie recipe has all of the right nutrients to get your body back on track.

1 cup spinach
1 cup frozen or fresh strawberries
a half cup of Yoplait strawberry yogurt (or yogurt of your choice)
1 banana
a half cup of orange juice (or juice of your choice)

Fun Facts:
Spinach is low in fat but high in protein. It also contains Niacin and Calcium which promotes great heart health and strong bones. Strawberries help burn fat and boost short term memory. They are low in calories but high in fiber which is great for the digestive system. Adding chia or flax seeds will give your smoothie extra pizazz and a great energy boost.

The recipe is fairly simple so you all have no excuses to try it out! I would suggest you trade in that chocolate milk and fatty latte for this luscious smoothie and see how much of a difference it will make. I have added a smoothie to my diet every other day and I am so glad I did. I feel more energized throughout the day and completely relaxed.

Start the journey and radiate healthy vibes day to day!
