Green smoothies are a great way to get your eating habits back on track after the cookie-filled holidays. The “Queen of Green Hemp Smoothie” from Rawlicious Superfoods by Peter and Beryn Daniel is the perfect recipe to get you started. We recommend this smoothie specifically for its mild flavor—you can work up to the kale and spirulina later! This drink is packed with protein, alkalizing greens, and sweetened with wholesome fruit. It’s the fresh start you need—and your body is craving— to begin the new year!
