to smoothie - mango cardamom blast

After Sinterklaas - a belgian holiday that involved a Saint climbing down the chimney with gifts. To lay them next to the shoe you prepped at the bottom of the chimney filled with a carrot -  for his white horse -  and a beer -  for the Saint - . But the gifts isn't all you get... You also get a shitload of chocolate figurines, marsipan, clementines, letter cookies, speculoos,..... a ton of sugary sweets...

This program comes as a blessing!
Doing a little pre holiday cleanse! 
Getting rid of my growing sugar addiction, that is slowly creeping in again!
- must nip it in the butt before all hell breaks loose! - 

Here is one recipe from the Cleanse Program developed by Alejandro Junger for Goop.
