Fall is the season of changing leaves, football, cozy knits and comfort food. As the seasons change though our skin can go haywire and our immune systems are compromised.

Put it in a ball jar, throw on the lid and you can take it with you on your commute to work or if you’re running errands during the day and need a quick and healthy snack!
Frozen blueberries, strawberries and mangos

Combine frozen fruit, banana, yogurt, orange juice, and chia seeds in a blender. Blend until smooth. Pour smoothie in glass and top with granola. Stir granola into smoothie and enjoy!
