{Healthy Fuel}: Smoothies!

Consider smoothies as a dessert alternative or as breakfast or whenever.  they are ultra filling and  healthy and whatever you can’t finish just pop in the freezer for later.  they can be microwaved a little at a time and stirred until slushy again. i’m smiling typing this because i love smoothies so much!
