Layered Christmas Smoothie Recipe + some Healthy Christmas Tips!

Tis’ the season to have some fun with your food and still keep some of those healthy habits! Going a little off the healthy bandwagon is totally natural and the last thing you should do is feel guilty about it and stress over it all. Stress is WORSE than some of the food out there. So lets have some fun! 

At Christmas time lets just focus on being thankful for all the good in our life. That includes GOOD FOOD! We have a few recipes to get you inspired in our back catalogue of Festive Treats.
