A fresh and fruity smoothie with the bright flavors of mango, pineapple, orange and carrots.
I’ve got a quick and easy breakfast idea for you today. It’s a fresh and fruity smoothie made from a blend of pineapple, mangoes, orange and carrots.
This super refreshing blend of tropical and citrus fruit always reminds me of warm weather and sun-filled days, which is why I call it my tropical sunshine smoothie. I also happen to think it’s a pretty nice way to start out your day on a bright note.
You’ve got a veritable medley of bold flavors along with loads of nutrients mingling together in this icy delight. Juicy, sweet mango, pineapple and orange offer a nice boost of vitamin C along with a hint of acidity.
The bromelain in the pineapple helps with digestion and has anti-inflammatory properties. The carrots add a bit more natural sweetness along with a nice dose of beta-carotene, and a touch of ginger brings a little heat and more digestive and anti-inflammatory benefits.
Keeping the fruits and vegetables whole here means you get all the benefits of the fiber, while the fat and protein in the yogurt help keep you fuller longer, giving you energy that lasts.
Of course the best part is sipping on this sweet, tropical blend while day dreaming of palm trees, sunshine, sandy beaches and clear blue waters….
