Welcome to the second installment of Smoothies with Style! I’m really having fun developing recipes AND color combinations with this new series. I’ve also started a #smoothieswithstyle hashtag on Instagram so you can share your beauteous smoothie creations too. (Who knows, maaaaybe just maybe I’ll feature yours! But you gotta tag them so I can see ’em!)

I’ll let you in on a little secret: Daisy petals are completely edible–sorry Doris Day. Don’t tell me you don’t think that’s crazy ’cause I know you do. (I did when I first found out!) Daisy petals are closely related to artichokes and are high in Vitamin C. They also help relieve headaches! I plucked a few daisies from a patch near my house and put ’em in a smoothie.

**Optional: Get fancy and add a daisy for garnish. These would make such a cute addition to a brunch party if you put them in small juice glasses and garnished each one with a daisy.
