Instructions:

  1.  Add all fruit blends to blender, along with moringa, wheat germ, ground flax seeds, all spices, and honey (if using).

  2.  Next, add yogurt, coconut water, cashew milk, and juice (if using) and blend until creamy.

  3.  At this stage, smoothie should be a bit frothy/slushy if frozen fruit was used so if you'd like it more liquid, add a bit more of your desired beverage from our yummy ingredient list. 

  4.  Enjoy and stay replenished!!
