While we’re muddling through the gray depths of winter, our friend Amie Valpone at The Healthy Apple has an idea we just love: a sunshiny smoothie that gives us a tickle from our taste buds to our tummies.

And if you’re monitoring your diet for specific ingredients (or even if you’re not), this smoothie has you covered: it’s dairy-free, gluten-free and vegan, too!

Not to mention delicious.

What more could you ask for?

Oh, the recipe. Here you go. Enjoy!
