As we head into the second month of 2015 (that’s crazy talk, right?) it’s a good idea to reassess goals made at the start of the year. One of mine has been to eat more healthfully, especially at breakfast. Because I work from home, I often cozy up to my desk with a cup of coffee first thing in the morning, swearing I’ll make it downstairs for a snack in a little while. It’s easy to get caught up in emails and client work and forget all about the most important meal of the day. I’m working on making breakfast more of a priority, even if it’s as simple as a smoothie.
My friends at Natalie’s Orchid Island Juice Co. sent me some of their juices to try, and I think they’re some of the freshest juices I’ve ever tried. Mix any of Natalie’s amazing juices with fresh and frozen fruit for a tasty breakfast smoothie. I love that Natalie’s has lots of options for fresh-squeezed citrus juices that don’t have any preservatives or hidden ingredients.
This Winter Sunrise Smoothie is a bright and sunshiny blend that’s both delicious and good for you. To make it, you’ll blend Greek yogurt, a banana, fresh and frozen berries and some fresh grated ginger plus Natalie’s sweet Orange Mango Juice and Pure Lime Juice. The tropical notes in this smoothie give me a glimpse of summertime, something I’ve been craving lots in this ice-cold weather.
Natalie’s selection of fresh juices will certainly elevate any smoothie. If you are, like I am, working on eating better breakfasts this year, then this Winter Sunrise Smoothie is a great recipe to get you started.
