The first few weeks of 2022 have been a whirlwind for our family, and I’m sure many of you feel the same way. This smoothie has come in handy recently when I don’t have much time or energy (like when caring for my toddler sick with croup). I don’t usually replace my meals with smoothies, but considering the protein this smoothie provides I am grateful to have it in my back pocket. Don’t skip the cardamom, it is subtle but provides a wonderful flavor addition.
