Here is a festive and nourishing smoothie to fire things up this holiday season! You've got many things going for it. It contains cashews, which are an excellent source of monounsaturated fats. Cashews are rich in minerals like copper, manganese, and magnesium. This smoothie is infused with Real Mushrooms 5 Defenders, which contains 5 key medicinal mushrooms (reishi, chaga, maitake, shiitake, and turkey tail) known to support/boost our immune system.

This smoothie could serve many forms as either a pre-workout, post-workout and or a solid snack between meals this holiday season! Let's dive into the recipe, shall we!?
