Fruity Smoothie

This is awful. Don't know if it was my protein powder or if this is just not good, but I couldn't even force myself to drink it. I got two big gulps in before I just tossed it down the drain.

I made this as a sample for our patients in Kayenta, AZ. The response from teammates and patients has been positive. This is a good fruity treat.
