This smoothie is the perfect mid-afternoon snack for those of us with a sweet tooth!
- 1 mango
- 1⁄2 c pineapple
- 1 banana
- 1⁄2 c orange juice (or 1/2 peeled orange)
- 1⁄2 c water
- 4-5 ice cubes (optional)
- 1 T coconut oil
- 2 T chia seeds.
- It's tastiest if you freeze the fruits first but sometimes that just doesn't happen. Whateves. That's why God (or the freezer) made ice cubes.
- Blend everything together according to your blender's instructions, share with a friend, and enjoy!
Maybe it was just the sugar spike, but the first time I drank this I felt overwhelmed with joy. I felt intense gratitude over all the awesome things in my life: my Vitamix (I seriously love that thing), all the healthy food I have access to, Richard's mom who packed a mango for us (I rarely buy them, but they're so good!) and showed us how to properly cut it, and that I am eating more adventurously and healthfully thanks to studying at Institute of Integrative Nutrition.
Tell me, what are you grateful for today? Leave a comment and let's celebrate together!
(PS Check out the song that inspired the name of this smoothie: Jill Scott - Golden )
