Recipe Notes

I picked up the recipe for the “Green Monster” from my chiropractor and every other morning I blend the following ingredients for my own version. The consistency is less than a milkshake and more than water – drink with a straw! Avoid using high sugar fruits and dried fruits. Cranberries are great and can be sourced locally, but I substitute Goji berries because I just love their taste.
