Combine your desire to get fit for the New Year with your knack for creative DIY in this amazing smoothie recipe from Beth at The First Year. It tastes as good as it looks!

It yields up to 8-10 servings so it can be great to prepare for a big family brunch, or you can scale back the recipe as needed.

You can also use fresh fruit, but it’s a good idea to freeze it first to maintain the consistency.
