Winters in the mid-west are harsh on our skin and bellies. I find myself not eating enough greens, simply because I don’t have the appetite for them. My winter cravings have been warm starchy comfort foods. Here is a yummy smoothie recipe that includes lots of greens and those good fats.

Your skin will be glowing, your belly will be digesting and your lips will be (kissable) silky smooth again.
