I’m very lucky that I don’t get major withdrawals when I stop coffee and caffeine cold turkey. I always hear of people who feel lethargic or get major headaches the first couple days of a cleanse or detox. But just because I’m not drinking coffee or tea doesn’t mean that I don’t like a morning pick-me-up.
Well, this zippy peach ginger smoothie will definitely put some pep in your step. The ginger is super energizing while the peach adds sweetness and the coconut water and coconut milk add a mellow, creamy background. I’d take this over coffee any day- it’s like dessert for breakfast.
