Author Notes

This smoothie is focused on the immune boosting, anti-inflammatory, liver support, antioxidant action of its main ingredients, along with good dietary fiber and protein. A nutritional bomb packed with flavor and goodness, just my kind of morning. —sil entre jardins

Cleansing! What is a golden berry?

Hi there! Golden berry is another name for Inca berry or Physalis. Use fresh or in dried form.
