This week I thought I’d share a couple of my favorite aronia berry smoothie recipes. It’s a perfect “pick me up” after an intense morning workout and it provides me with the energy needed to face the rigors of the oncoming day. It’s also a very easy quick fix and supplies much of the nutrients needed from a good, healthy breakfast. One note, occasionally I’ll add blueberry or strawberry kefir to the mix to live on the edge and “sweeten the deal” just a bit. Enjoy!
