Christmas in a glass: smoothie designed by Lola Berry

Nothing gets us into the spirit of the holiday season like a tropical smoothie. That’s why we asked author, nutritionist and Endeavour graduate Lola Berry to create an exclusive recipe brimming with health benefits and tasting just like Christmas in a glass for the closest members of our community.

We hope you enjoy Lola’s fruity concoction as much as we did, and that you drink in those special moments with your loved ones over the break.
