Living My Life Like It's Golden Smoothie

Course: Beverages
Cuisine: Vegetarian
Serves: 2


  • 1 mango
  • 12 c pineapple
  • 1 banana
  • 12 c orange juice (or 1/2 peeled orange)
  • 12 c water
  • 4-5 ice cubes (optional)
  • 1 T coconut oil
  • 2 T chia seeds.


  1. 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.
  2. Blend everything together according to your blender's instructions, share with a friend, and enjoy!

LMLLIG smoothie is a thick glass of sunshine! It is impossible to be in a bad mood and drink this. (I dare you to try!) 

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 )
