Refreshing, easy, quick, alkalizing, great for your skin… what are you waiting for? This recipe is a snap.

This smoothie is knockout gorgeous! I poured it into a tall clear container to keep in the fridge (it didn’t last long…) and drank the rest of it in a tall glass, and just couldn’t believe how radiantly orange it was every time I looked at it. I almost hated to drink it! Almost… Chock-full [...]
