Tosca Reno's Spring-Cleaning Smoothie

Feeling sluggish? A little spring cleaning is in order! I've created this yummy smoothie to scrub you from the inside out. Don't let the green color scare you off - it's a combination of hemp protein powder and spirulina powder. Spirulina is blue-green algae bursting with protein, essential fatty acids, vitamins B, C, D, E, and minerals. Drink up to clean up!
