Winter Warm-Up Smoothie

Here in the Northeast, it's been fairly chilly this week. Some might say downright frigid, but I don't like to complain too much. It can always be worse, right? Anyhow, when our southeastern neighbors got pounded with snow this week, we got very little. Yet our office, in the town of Canaan, CT (where we tend to lose power or internet if someone sneezes too hard), lost phone and internet for a good hour on Wednesday morning. Vito, who works in Customer Service, had been nudging me to make a smoothie for the office for days now, so we decided to seize the opportunity. Our recipe incorportated warming cinnamon, filling & balancing organic peanut butter, berries, and of course 2 scoops of Field of Greens. The recipe below was to satiate 10-15 Vibrant Health employees. So adjust accordingly unless you want to be drinking smoothie for days, which is totally understandable of you.

Smoothies are not just for summer! Try this warming & hearty #fieldofgreens recipe.
