Dandelion Strawberry Peach Smoothie

Fruit SmootieFor the new year I’ve made a personal vow to eat 5 fruits and vegetables a day.  Beginning my day with a smoothie has helped me honor my commitment. The first time I made a smoothie it was rated NF for nasty fail.  Who knew there was an art to creating smoothie recipes.  Mine always had a thin consistency, and tasted like raw bland vegetables…yes you can imagine YUCK.  Clearly I need to follow a proven recipe.  After months of wasted ingredients, I’ve finally got it.  Today I am sharing with you my favorite morning treat, Dandelion Berry Peach Smoothie recipe.

Great-looking smoothie LoToya! I need to try this. Two days ago, I skipped going to grab ice cream from Cold Stone to make the healthier choice of making a home-made smoothie with the Magic Bullet- a Christmas present to my mom.. it was sooo much fun! But your recipe sounds much more exciting than the one I used! Can’t wait to try it!! Thanks!!
