As with all of my superfood smoothie and elixir recipes, don’t be discouraged from trying it if you don’t have all the ingredients in the list. Start where you are. Use what you have on hand. Get creative! These recipes are designed as launch pads into the world of smoothie making.

This is a time to gently release the old, that which we no longer need, and to create space for the new. Here in Northern Ontario, we endure long months of cold, wind, ice and snow, a beautiful insulation for this time of deep clearing.
With all of the colds, flu, viruses, stress-induced sleep disorders, hormone imbalance and low energy that people experience this time of year, our nutrition really matters! If you want to stay healthy, you need to be eating organic, plant-based, enzyme rich, alkalizing foods now more than ever!
