Long story short:  this superfood smoothie has a special place in my heart.  The recipe was literally handed down to me...on a loose piece of notebook paper...from my mom...who got it from one of the least healthy people I have ever known...my dad.

[RIP, MAJ.  I wish you drank more of these.  You might have had a fighting chance.]
