7 Bangin, Smoothies

When you think you may miss eating your daily serving(s) of fresh fruits and vegetables, grab a smoothie to save the day!

Below are 7 that I enjoy… Quick note: when I reference coconut milk and almond milk, I mean the UNSWEETENED, lower calorie non-dairy milk you can purchase in a carton or jug. The calories should be between 30 and 60 calories per cup.  Coconut cream refers to the dense, creamy mixture you can find in a can.
