Perfect Blend recipe

Bye Bye Blues

Short days, less sunlight, and cold weather can get the best of anyone. Say 'Bye Bye Blues' with this gorgeous and delicious smoothie. Spirulina is a superfood—a powdered algae loaded with Vitamin D, B12 and Vitamin K. It's also a great source of Vitamin E and zinc. Getting adequate amounts of these vitamins can prove challenging, and deficiencies can make it hard for your body to maintain levels of serotonin—a key player in your body’s natural defense against depression. Combined with the mood-lifting power of bananas, this smoothie will put some giddy-up in your step!
