Mija Superstar smoothie recipes

Mija Superstar supplement was developed by a registered dietitian with serious credentials. Sarah Koszyk, MA, RDN has both a bachelor’s and a master’s degree in nutrition; she’s written four books, serves as the resident nutrition correspondent for the Bay Area’s KRON-4 News, and has an impressive roster of local clients ranging from Silicon Valley CEOs to professional athletes. Obviously, Sarah knows what she’s doing, and she created Mija Superstar to address the most frequent nutritional gaps she’s seen in her work with private clients.

We asked Sarah to share some of her favorite smoothie recipes with us — because one of the best things about her supplement is how nicely it works in your morning smoothie. Check out these delicious creations below, and learn more about the depth of thinking and effort behind Mija in our interview with Sarah here.
