After a long, cold winter many of us need to lose a few pounds to get ready for the fast approaching bikini season. We know that dairy, carbs and sugar make us gain weight. But we need something naughty to look forward to and fantasize on… Personally, I am unable to crack my sweet tooth.

I drink this concoction about 5x a week and yes, I gag a little during the process. My baby always watches me with great fascination while I glug back this nut-spice smoothie. But ladies, I glow, I shine and I exude health and vitality… And I might be able to crank out a baby when I am 60!
