Morning Glory Smoothie

This is a recipe that I’ve been drinking for a while, and for some reason it makes me happy.  It’s light, fresh, and just the right amount of sweetness for me.  I usually drink it for breakfast or for a mid-afternoon pick me up, sometimes changing out the mango for green apple–depending on what’s available.

Morning Glory

Truth is, I haven’t been feeling well lately.  I’ve been exhausted from “normal” life and just trying to keep all the wheels moving.  Being a mom is hard work. 24/7.  While I almost always eat clean and make wise choices–I don’t all the time.  Once I make one bad choice, it’s so much easier to justify making another one.

I know that eating a bunch of bread and sweets makes  my body not function like I need it to to make it through a day…But it’s quick and satisfying and easy to keep making that choice.

Well, this morning, I’d had enough.  I drank warm lemon water (which used to be a routine of mine that I’d gotten away from) and made this smoothie.  I challenged myself to share it with y’all so I would make it and drink it.  I’d forgotten how much I LOVE it, how much instant energy it gives me, and how it makes my insides feel happy. It sets me up to make better decisions all day long.

I hope you enjoy this smoothie, and I hope it encourages you to get a little cleaner!
