Motivation Monday: “I can & I will.”

Ok soooo shirts are still not up in the store guys! I thought I could get it done last week, but I’ve been so busy! Five days in, and August has already been a crazy month!

I haven’t done a smoothie recipe for quite some time and sine the weather is heating up here in Southern California, I thought it was about time. Have you ever tried avocado in a smoothie? Not only does it add a dose of healthy fats, omega-3, vitamins A, C, E, K and B6, along with an enormous amount of potassium, but it adds the perfect creaminess to your morning schmoozie. If you aren’t a fan of avocados, this is a great place to start since the flavor is very mild and almost unrecognizable in this mix of mango and yogurt.

Add some healthy plant-based fats to your morning smoothie with a little dose of avo!

    So I’m all about shoving handfuls of spinach or kale or romaine and other green leafy things into my smoothies or juices, but I could never muster the courage to throw in avocado. Nothing against avocado! I love them with a fork. But THIS recipe I’m going to try. I have a good feeling about this! Thanks SO much for the inspiration.

    Oh, and I want a shirt too!

    Wow, I just tried this and it is the creamiest smoothy ever! I don’t even taste the avocado, just mango and cinnamon.

    Just made this tonight- it was delicious!!!! I did use organic soy milk instead of water & added just a little organic cane sugar to entice my 3 1/2 year old… She loved it!

    Avocado-creaminess, must try! Your shirts sell out sooo fast, will you be doing a summer collection? 🙂
