Before you read the ingredients TRUST ME when I tell you this smoothie is awesome. It’s refreshing, satisfying and the spice wakes up the taste buds while giving your metabolism a kick start!
My husband had this while on vacation in Ashville, NC at a coffee house called High Five Coffee. Thus, the name. He let me know right away this was his new favorite smoothie and something we HAD to make at home. Mission accomplished. I added some strawberries because…. well, why not?!
None of our smoothie greatness would be possible without our most treasured kitchen gadget- THE BLENDTEC! We burned through so many blenders before we finally decided to make the investment in the Blendtec. It worked like a champ for a couple of years before the power switch on the back wouldn’t stay to the ‘on’ position. Blendtec offers a great warranty so we were able to send it back and they sent a whole new base! So happy with this purchase and I will sing its praise for all eternity.
Yummy! You gotta try it!
