Skip your way into Spring with this Super Smoothie!

The winter months are done and it’s time to get back to business.

If you’re anything like us, winter is all about wholesome, rich foods which keep you comforted while the weather is dreary. Oh how warm and fuzzy it makes you feel at the time, but now that these days are getting longer, we’re starting to feel the effects that heavier food has had on our health and waistline.

Here at Retreat Yourself, we’re all about seasonal living. We believe that the more we adapt our lives and health to the changing of season, the more harmonious our lives will be. This means changing the foods we eat, the products we use, the times we go to sleep, and the clothes we wear. We pretty much adapt our lives four times a year so that we can always be feeling our best.

Over this past week, we’ve been filling up on plenty of healthy and fresh foods to kick our body into gear, reading for the spring months ahead. Here is one super smoothie that is guaranteed to get rid of that winter frump and get that glow back in your skin!


  What you’ll need is….
  • A blender, or Vitamix, or anything that will chop your food into tiny little pieces
  • A handful of spinach
  • A few fresh strawberries
  • 1 small banana
  • ¼ of a ripe (but not too ripe!) avocado
  • A spoonful of raw cacao powder (gives it that chocolatey taste!)
  • Small handful of almonds (about 10 or 12)

Throw them into the blender with a cup of cold water (or almond milk if you please) and whiz until all of the chunky pieces are gone, and enjoy!

Transitioning to a plastic-free lifestyle isn’t intuitive - after all, we live in a culture that thrives from using plastic for just about anything (bananas wrapped in plastic?!). But with a shift in mindset, the right resources, and some handy tools, you’ll be good to go!
