The weather is warming up beautifully here in Florida and all the stores and markets are filled with amazing fruits and vegetables.  I just love Spring!!  I also love smoothies.  I start everyday with a smoothie, what better way is there to fill your body with amazing nutrients all in one sitting?  And have it taste good??

I wanted to share one of my recent creations, a Blueberry Banana Power Smoothie.  You may ask, what makes this “Power Smoothie”?  Blueberries are amazing for you, and I added in turmeric and cinnamon, they don’t compromise the flavor of your smoothie and are great for you.  I tossed in some Chia Seeds too.  These little guys are packed full of fiber and lots of other good stuff, so I have been adding them to my smoothies daily.  Plus, since they are so tiny, a container will last you a long time!

Most people gobble down smoothies all summer long - we do too - but our summer smoothies are inspired by the desire to beat the heat and the availability of fresh produce. Our winter smoothies are more about packing superfoods into our daily diet.
