Rise and Shine Smoothie

Do you ever get in a smoothie rut? I get in a smoothie rut. I always make the same 2 smoothies. Always. Never any deviation. Even though I have made others before and know how good they taste, I just go with the defaults because they’re easy. Not that the others aren’t, but it’s almost like I’m on auto-pilot.

This morning, I decided I didn’t want the old standby. I wanted something new and delicious and breakfasty. Spell check says that’s not a word but I disagree. I’m not one to have a glass of OJ with breakfast, it’s never really been my thing, but I know that oranges equal breakfast to a lot of people. I don’t really think to put oranges in smoothies but since I just bought a whole bag last week, I decided to do that this morning. Turned out to be a great decision. And although most of the time I toss a handful of spinach in my smoothies, I didn’t today, but I would highly recommend it to get your morning dose of greens.

Also, an important note, my family of 5 eats like a family of 10 at times, and when I make smoothies, I make them BIG. This one is no exception. This smoothie is enough for all 5 of us, so if you don’t need that much, cut it in half. And if you still have leftover, pour it into popsicle molds to enjoy later. Leftover smoothie popsicles are the only kind my kids get and they love them.

    Just made this for breakfast..yuuuumy! I made it with coconut milk (my first time trying and I LOVE it) and had to use frozen blueberries cuz our store was out of frozen mango. We’re not “smoothie people” but we are trying to go…do (??) the paleo way of eating. This is a keeper! Thanks.

    I haven’t started Paleo yet. Am collecting recipes. You mentioned eggs, but they aren’t Paleo. Are you on a semi/Paleo diet?
