It's good to share

Audrey Johns was on The Today Show because she has lost over 100 pounds by just eating. Her blog, Lose Weight by Eating, is an inspiration for me. I’m collecting some of her recipes to try and share with you. 

This smoothie is known as a “green” smoothie but isn’t green. 

 This beautiful orange smoothie looks as pretty as it tastes, plus it’s packed full of metabolism boosting ingredients to help you shed weight faster.

Swap option: This recipe calls for coconut water, but you can swap out the coconut water and use regular water should you desire. You can also use coconut milk or almond milk in place of the coconut water for a creamier shake like consistency.
