Jason Adams has worked in the kitchens at some of the world's finest hotels, including Tower Thistle, Hyatt Carlton Towers, and eight Ritz-Carlton resorts. Currently, he's the executive chef at the Four Seasons Resort Nevis. Adams recommends this green tea, banana, and blueberry smoothie as an easy refresher. "Nevis is an island of natural remedies," he says, "and the high antioxidant properties of these three ingredients combine for a boost to one's immune, metabolic, and cardiovascular systems."
