Earth Day Eats: Green Smoothie

Nicole Berrie of plant-based store shares her favorite green smoothie

In celebration of the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, SI Swimsuit talked to Nicole Berrie, founder of Bonberi and Bonberi Mart, a plant-based convenience store in New York City, to get the lowdown on a green smoothie that’s a huge hit with her community. “Plant-based living is not only super important for my health and well-being but also for the well-being of the planet,” says Berrie. “I have this smoothie every day after my workout. It’s full of whole-food electrolytes and enzymes to help digest the meals ahead. It’s like kryptonite for any acidity you may encounter later in the day -- think better digestion, less bloating, more energy and super glowy skin.” What's not to love?
