Summertime Raw Food Smoothie recipe

Summertime is approaching and bringing some positive rays of sunshine our way.

This time of year we begin to get the most out of each day, increased serotonin giving us the spark and excitement to spend more time in nature, and helping motivate us to achieve our goals! Through sustainable and conscious living we can immerse ourselves in what we love, to feel connected with ourselves, the people around us, and the environment. A great way to kick-start your day is by preparing a delicious raw food smoothie that uses organic and sustainably-sourced ingredients that contain tons of vital nutrients. Smoothie recipes are endless! You will get to know which ones you love and be inspired to make many more, whether for brekky, as a snack, or after school. They are much more healing for the body, mind and spirit than they may seem. On the Biome website under the Food and Kitchen tab you will find superfoods that you can add to your smoothies, like Acai Berry powder and the whole Honest To Goodness range of dried fruits, nuts and seeds. Here's a favourite smoothie recipe from Stef, which you can also modify to your taste.
