It’s good morning outside! That is how my now 24 year old son used to wake me up when he was 3. He would come running into the bedroom screaming, “It’s good morning outside mom, wake up!” It always woke me up with a smile for the day. This Super Simple Sunshine Smoothie can put a smile on your face and give you the energy you need to start the day off right.
I love throwing different things into my Vita-mix and seeing what yummy creation I can come up with and this one turned out like a glass of delicious sunshine. Trust me, I have made some horrible smoothies in my time especially when mixing in greens. I enjoy making a super nutrient dense smoothie but sometimes I can over do it by adding too many “good” things and end up making it too complicated and well…gross. This one is super simple and tastes like you went to one of those expensive juice/smoothie bars. Throw in a few ice cubes if you want it super cold.
Simple Sunshine Smoothie
1 banana, peeled
1 orange, peeled and separated
4-8 super soft dates (depending on sweetness desired)
1/4 cup frozen pineapple chunks
1 nectarine pitted and sliced
2+ cups unsweetened Almond-Coconut milk by Almond Dream
Throw all the ingredients into a high powered blender and blend until smooth and creamy. If you do not have a high powered blender soak the dates until they are very soft in a small amount of water and add the dates and the water to your blender. Adjust the amount of milk to your desired thickness and add ice if you want it super cold. ENJOY!
