Lush List: Breakfast Smoothies

by | Jan 8, 2015 | Breakfast

Just a quick check in to share a few of my favorite smoothies with you.  I usually have one in the morning if I’m not having fresh juice but they would be good anytime of day for a pick me up or as a meal replacement.  Here’s sticking with our New Year Resolutions or as I call it Reset!

If you don’t have a good blender, invest now in a Vitamix.  They are truly the top of the top as far as blenders go.  If you’ve ever had a chunk of something in your smoothie or worse yet, a hunk of ice in your margarita, and wonder how that doesn’t happen other places, I’d bet a Vitamix is why.  It smooths out even the toughest foods and ice.  Get one.  Mine is on sale with Free Shipping at Williams-Sonoma today.  You’ll thank me now and when you’re making margs this summer!
