energy boost smoothies

Here's the second in a series of recipe reviews from Gooseberry Patch's latest cookbook, Good-for-You Everyday Meals.  If you haven't already entered the giveaway to win a copy of this book, you can do so here.  It's fabulous!  Don't miss out on a chance to win a copy!

This smoothie has a delicious flavor, and there's no added sugars!  I was so impressed.  I do wish I had had a Magic Bullet to make it - my food processor didn't get it quite as smooth as I would like.  Despite that, Miss Pebbles declared it to be "good soup" and gobbled it right up, which is a compliment coming from a picky eater like her!
