Fly With The Golden Eagle

Drink Up and Fly With The Golden Eagle

Did you know that golden eagles can live for up to fifty years? They need about 9 ounces of food per day, which is about 7 percent of their body weight. You won’t need to drink 7 percent of your body weight per day in smoothies, although you may be tempted to do so once you taste The Golden Eagle.

The Leaping Gazelle Smoothie

Gazelles are one of the oldest mammals in existence – they’ve been around for over 12 million years! They are admired for their graceful appearance, and have been known to leap as high as twelve feet straight into the air. This smoothie won’t make you leap that high, or you’d hit your head on the ceiling, but it will make your insides jump for joy.
