Your body is a nutrient loving instrument and I LOVE being creative with ways to get goodness into your body so you can have high energy levels and get on with your day.
There is nothing quicker for breakfast or a snack than a smoothie and this one’s pretty special.
Cherry and almond nut butter smoothie 🙂
