Beetroot Latte

Normally I post new blogs on Sunday afternoon, but with this recent spell of snow(!) and winter weather I decided that I might as well post this as I write it.

Zingy Smoothie – for grey spring days

In keeping with the yellow theme from last month’s blog post on the FIRE Aspect, I give you another yellow combination. And yes, it’s still a liquid one(!) *Note to self, make the next recipe something that you’ll chew*

But as I’m getting myself geared up for Whole Detox™ in about 10 days I’m enjoying a few smoothies here and …
