C-Boost Smoothie


Yesterday morning, Ava and I woke up feeling like we were coming down with cold. Instead of gulping down a bunch of vitamin C like I used to do; these days, I try to get my vitamins from whole foods. So I whipped up my C-Boost Smoothie which is one of my go-to smoothie recipes, and we drank warm water with honey and lemon several times. As a result, I can say we are both feeling much better!

This smoothie is creamy and delicious! Enjoy!
