Naturally being an ~LA gurl~ from the Valley, I am obsessed with Sunlife Organics! One of my favorite items off of the menu is the Wolverine smoothie which is absolutely delicious, a great meal replacement, and nutrient dense. This smoothie is packed with lots of superfoods and will have you feeling full and energized throughout the day.
Now that I live in South Central (#FightOn), I don't always feel like sitting in LA traffic for two hours to go all the way to Calabasas, the 'Bu, or one of the other current Sunlife Organics locations. After a little grocery shopping and some research I am now able to make one of my fave smoothies right at home! I've found it is a lot cheaper to buy the majority of the ingredients online so click each of the ingredients underlined to be linked.
