Here’s a fantastic recipe submitted by Cheryl Salter from Beaufort, NC (once voted coolest small town in America). Cheryl leads an active lifestyle and drinks this healthy, low-cal superfood smoothie every morning.
“My life is full of water sports, like kiteboarding (pass certified instructor) and stand up paddle boarding as well as sailboat racing. I am blessed to live on the east coast of North Carolina where I catch fresh clams, shrimp and fish to enjoy with my family. Drinking smoothies are a way for me to get my vitamins and that boost of energy needed to keep me going. I drink this “Pick Me Up” smoothie every morning. My motto is live to inspire before I expire!” - Cheryl Salter
