Hello! Hope you are all staying warm in this crazy winter weather. West coast friends, well, I am just jealous. There I said it. However, I don’t think I could ever go year-round with out ANY snow.

With a lack of vitamin D here in the Northeast, I need a morning pick me up. I love a good cup of coffee, but sometimes I have a mid day crash. This almond butter smoothie recipe is my “go-to” when trying keeping my energy up in the cold months.

1 1/2 cups frozen blueberries (6 oz.)
1 tablespoon lemon juice
3 tablespoons almond butter
2 tablespoons flaxseeds
3 dates (Medjool or Deglet), pitted
