Author Notes

pink, what an intimidating color to say i love you to? it bears too many stereotypical definitions i don’t want to be labeled on and to give out with wrong expectations.

but for this one very healthy, happiness/fiber/vitamin-c fully loaded smoothie recipe, i want to give it a green light, for the genuine love of natural seasonal flavors, the celebration of experimental spirits, and the simplest joy the blend brings when it hits the taste bud.

and now, pink is innocent. pink is free.

may we all be free from idiotic ideologies. —Winnie Wang
