We’re going to be featuring brain boosting recipes for the rest of the year into January, in honor of my new docuseries, Broken Brain. I know it’s pretty cold out, but I still enjoy a good smoothie even in the winter. This brain boosting smoothie comes from my friends at Curry Girls Kitchen. It’s got fats, phytonutrients, spices, protein—all the good stuff! Click here for PDF version.
