Berry Smoothie

25 Mar

My oldest LOVES when I make smoothies, so I decided to try this one this past weekend. It was a hit with all four of us! This recipe was adapted from a smoothie recipe in one of my cookbooks, and my version is completely healthy and supports our whole foods lifestyle. Enjoy!
