There’s so many things I love about the weekends. Like waking up after the sun for a change. I love the way it peeks through the blinds and gives you that gentle, “hello.” On days like this I actually have the time to go downstairs in my pj’s, concoct a delicious morning smoothie, sit at the breakfast table and give a proper welcome to the day. Nothing says good morning like a cool glass of blended goodness.

I don’t know about you, but pop a striped straw in almost anything and the yumminess goes through the roof!

Rise and Shine Smoothie

1 cup frozen or fresh blueberries
1 peach or a handful of frozen peach slices
1/2 ripe banana
2 heaping spoonfuls organic plain yogurt
2 cups organic soy milk (plain)
1 tbsp ground flax seed
1 tbsp organic honey

Combine the first six ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Add the honey and blend one final time. Add a peach slice and a fun striped straw and sip, sip, sip away!

All of the quantities are estimated and can be adjusted to suit your taste. I’ve learned if you want a sweeter smoothie hold back a little on the yogurt and add more milk. Also, the fruits can be substituted for just about any other fruits: raspberries, strawberries, you name it. 

So play around with the quantities and don’t be afraid to have a little taste test mid-blend. You can always adjust the quantities to make it your perfect morning “hello”.

    Yum! I had a delicious strawberry, banana, and frozen mixed berry smoothie this morning. It really didn't take very long, and makes me realize that if I just woke up 5 minutes earlier, I could do it every morning.

    I know! I'm such a slacker. I need to roll out of bed earlier and enjoy one of these babies more often.
