Happy Valentine’s Day!

“You, yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.”

-Buddha

One of the ways to show yourself love is to strive toward, achieve and then maintain optimal health. Enjoy this festive Valentine’s Day recipe to aid in your pursuit of wellness on the holiday and the entire year through.

Cranberry Pomegranate Smoothies

Serves Two: One for you and one for the love of your life 

Ingredients:

1 cup of plain Greek yogurt

Half of a peeled banana

1/2 cup of frozen cranberries

1/4 cup of frozen strawberries

1/4 cup of frozen raspberries

1/4 cup of frozen blueberries

1/2 cup of pomegranate juice

1/2 cup of water

2 tbsp. of milled flax seeds

Method:

First add the base (Greek yogurt and half of a banana) along with the liquids (pomegranate juice and water) to the blender.

Then, add the frozen fruit and milled flax seeds. This ordering of smoothie ingredients prevents the frozen fruit from becoming stuck in the blade of the blender.

Blend until smooth. Pour into two glasses.

Slice one strawberry in half. Arrange the halves to form a heart on the rim of the glasses for a garnish. Enjoy!
