This dreamy looking smoothie is a treat for all the wonderful women feeling they need a boost, packed with nutrient rich adaptogens to support hormonal health, energy and libido. I won't disagree that the list is a bit long (..and it could probably be longer) but these beautiful ingredients work so well to support one another, I just couldn't resist. Plus, it's pink, creamy & delicious.
