The Winter Smoothie Challenge is in its final week (you can still sign up to get all of the recipes here)! We’ve been having a lot of fun playing around with different recipes and ingredients.
I wanted to share a bonus smoothie recipe this week in time for Valentine’s Day.
Something red and cinnamon-y!
Enjoy & Happy Valentine’s Day!
