Want an instant dose of summer when it’s grey skies outdoor? Whip out the frozen banana and blend up a healthy smoothie — it will give your body a buzz of energy without the caffeine, help your immune system thrive through cold and flu season, and push your digestive system in the right direction.

These two recipes from Sally Obermeder’s recently released book Super Green Smoothies hold within a powerhouse of nutrients that will see you on your way to pure health and bounding energy right through the winter.
