Here is a delicious raw smoothie recipe courtesy of Kristen Suzanne, author of the book Raw Awakening: Your Ultimate Guide to the Raw Food Diet. This is a fabulous smoothie that reminds Suzanne of a Creamsicle. She notes: “another way to enjoy it, equally as delish but different, is with ½ teaspoon of ground cinnamon added.”
