"Smoothie Packs: I like to make up ready-to-blend smoothie packs that I can freeze. I can easily pop one in the blender on a busy weekday morning and start our day with several helpings of fruits and vegetables. This time of year I like to take one out of the freezer the night before so our breakfast smoothie isn‘t too cold. I included organic berries, bananas, cherries, carrots, kale, mangos, protein powder (Thorne’s Mediclear adds detoxifiers), vitamin D, a probiotic blend and flax seeds. This combo is nature’s multivitamin!"
