Super Smoothie

Forget Gatorade and Power-Ade.  There’s a much better way to get potassium, magnesium, sodium, calcium, and electrolytes!  All that and more is in coconut water.  Make sure to get one that’s “not from concentrate” and has any added sugars.  Blend it with some powerhouse fruits and you have a Super Smoothie!
