Nothing like dreaming of your next surf trip in January.

Winter can be harsh and sometimes something as simple as a refreshing smoothie can really transport you to the beach. This is one of my favs with lots of good energy boosting herbs and hydrating greens! Throw all the ingredients below in your blender and shake that shit up!
