Mindful Muse

Happy Easter from Yoga Trade!  Springtime is a time of new beginnings and creations.  Sometimes we are fortunate enough to meet people along our journeys that are bursting with mindfulmuse2creative spring-like energy.  Kristin Esposito is one of these creative wonders. She is currently based out of Brooklyn, New York, and is a nutritionist, world traveler, freelance writer, and a yoga teacher at Stanton Street Yoga.  

Here she shares a recipe for a delicious and nutritious delight from her blog, Mindful Muse;

Nothing says spring more than the bud-to-bloom of the beloved Cherry Blossom Tree – with their elegant drapes of flowers and endless color, these trees dance in the spring breeze. As I found myself daydreaming about these amazing trees and anxiously await their bounty of beauty I immediately found myself craving and thinking about my other beloved cherries. Now I know I’m getting ahead of myself as cherries aren’t in season until summer but I just can’t resist. With cherries on my mind in all forms, I blended up this delicious smoothie to go with my side of cherry blossom daydreaming.
