1 apple, cored (I do not peel it) / 1.5 cups strawberries / 1 cup almond or cashew or soy milk (I buy all three) / 1/2 cup yogurt (strawberry, plain or vanilla) / 2 tsp honey

These easy to make smoothies are high in vitamins A and C, others contain anti-inflammatory properties, some possess antioxidants, and others help balance the blood-sugar.  I have so many smoothie recipes that I prepare on a weekly basis, these are from these past few weeks.  I hope that this post encourages you to eat more fruits & veggies, feel free to share!  Enjoy & let me know what you think!
