  1. Great posting and recipe developed by you i assume? For me, I would susbstitute the almond butter, even though organic, to organic coconut oil or cream, coconut that is. the protein pwoder that I use and call it sacrilege is ORGANIC HEMP PROTEIN….that alone has saved me on money and also health issues since I initiated that into my somoothie regimen. Addinf chlorella and spirulina, all organic mind you, has boosted my energy levels like never before. Just sharing you my own tips and what works for me, and does not necessarily mean it will work for you or anyone else. Just that everyone’s metabolism is different and I found me the ideal combinations that makes me tick and run like a well oiled human machine!
