New Year’s Resolution Smoothie

Mango Ginger Green Smoothie | Black Girl Chef's Whites

Are you one of those people who makes a resolution every year to eat healthier, drink less, be kinder, etc.? With the exception of being kinder, I am not one to make a New Year’s resolution.  In fact, I resolve to not make a resolution. Therefore, I never disappoint myself for failing to stick with my resolution. Win win, in my humble opinion.

But for those who do make resolutions, this recipe is for you. . . and everyone else really, since I do not believe in exclusion.

I keep seeing healthy recipes all over the place these days, since January is all about new beginnings and fresh starts. This New Year’s Resolution Smoothie recipe is probably one of my healthiest, as I sure do love to cook, eat and write about meat. Not that meat cannot be healthy. Everything in moderation, they say. Whoever they are.

This recipe was developed and posted 3 years ago, but it stands the test of time. And it is very easy, nutritious and filling. You’ll probably still want to make it even after your resolutions have fallen by the wayside. Not that they will.
