From the Chef: When I'm looking to eat healthier, I'll sometimes catch myself day-dreaming about all the foods I shouldn't eat: fast food fries, triple layer chocolate cake, cheesy lasagna. Cinnamon rolls often enter my thoughts, too, which is why I can't resist this smoothie recipe. I get to satisfy my cravings without all of those extra calories.
