Over the last year, I've been testing new recipes and have developed a long journal of ideas. Nevertheless, the first go at preparing any recipe is always a wild card.
I promised you this one in Instagram stories, because while it was originally meant to be an elaborate fruit bowl, my failed attempt actually resulted in one of my favorite summer smoothie's to date. Like I said, 10x better than the smoothie I'd paid $12 for the day before.
Packed with antioxidants, protein, minerals, and a blue-green microalgea that's one of the most potent nutrient sources out there, this smoothie will leave you feeling refreshed, satiated, and just a dash more mermaid-like ;)
