RECIPE: Citrus and Cucumber Health Kick Smoothie

Have you been starting your day with a quick healthy fix? I have and I feel great! Smoothies are a delicious, easy way to sneak vegetables in to your diet.  I like this “Health Kick” smoothie especially if I feel allergies or a cold coming on.  The cayenne usually power kicks my symptoms in 24-48 hours. Hi-yah!
