This smoothie makes a healthy, delicious breakfast, lunch or afternoon pick-me-up.

To combat afternoon fatigue, this smoothie has been my tried and true.

My upcoming book, “The Shape of Us,” features the weight-loss-friendly version of the recipe. Today’s version is more substantial. Perfect for a meal-on-the-run, afternoon pick-me-up or morning coffee replacement.

As for the lighter version, stay tuned for the book, coming out in April!
