With the warmer weather on the way, Almond Breeze offers up some new recipes to try! Here is one of our favs – the Power Green Smoothie which is chock-full of green goodness. Pineapple and pear balance the leafy greens making this a go-to smoothie at any time. Enjoy one serving for breakfast and pack the remaining serving for a mid-morning snack.
