Julianah's Wonderful Morning Smoothie Recipe Print E-mail

"Working in the Wellness Department at Weaver Street Market for 8 years now, many customers have asked me how I eat. I usually admit that I am a foodie, and that my morning meal is what sets the stage for the whole day. I've been revising it for several years, usually due to running out of one ingredient or the other, but this is my recipe, in print, for all to see." --Julianah
