This is one happy bowl.
Peppermint is such a soother, and it’s association with winter holidays makes it rather festive, don’t you think?
And goji berries are considered a happy berry, a mood booster.
In fact, it is said that there is a village in China where goji berry bushes grow along the banks of the creek that supplies their water, and the people there are said to be the happiest on earth because they are drinking goji goodness all day long.
All in all the smoothie is rich in vitamins, iron and zinc. Great way to start the morning!
