A Clean, Green Soul Smoothie Recipe
April 22, 2014
In honor of Earth Day, avid SoulCycle rider and chef CANDICE KUMAI shared a super-delicious recipe that's perfect before or after SoulCycle. It comes from her new book Clean Green Drinks, out today!
While developing and testing this recipe with my team, we all went a little crazy. Everyone kept going back for seconds, since it tastes just like a vanilla milkshake! But you’re actually slurping on nutrient-rich spinach, almond butter, and coconut water. Get it, gorgeous. Beauty starts from the inside… it’s just a bonus that it can taste this good. Happy Earth Day!
