Moving Out Of The Stone Age

Hello All!

Last week marked the end of Paleo. I am a huge fan of this diet choice. It was so easy to implement and maintain. I feel like I had incredibly balanced and diverse meals all month. I was able to go out to eat easily and I could see being on this diet long term.

During Paleo I was able to indulge my obsession with a particular favorite smoothie establishment, Zest. There is something about a good smoothie that really sets you up for an awesome day. There is one smoothie in particular made with cold brew coffee that I adore. Unfortunately, my love for this smoothie does not match my budget so I was inspired to get creative. I did a little research and some shopping and decided to make my own version of this smoothie at home.

It look a few tries but I am now able to make an acceptable copycat of both The Fix and the Happy Almond Smoothie. These smoothies are not only delicious but also filling and will give you a ton of energy to start your day.
