2017 New Year’s Resolution Week: GOOD MORNING! Smoothie

Update and Redux: J – Resolve to drink more smoothies. This is probably our easiest and healthiest smoothie. And, as its title says, it wakes you right up with a tasty jolt of fresh ginger in with the citrus juices. Citrus season makes it really easy to get fresh fruit. A nice addition to a healthy new year.

C – This morning I woke up sluggish.

I was really slow. I needed a boost. I didn’t even want to chew. Something was wrong with me. Caffeine wasn’t going to do it for me this morning. I needed something refreshing and light.

This tangerine, orange, ginger, banana and mango smoothie was it. It’s my GOOD MORNING! smoothie.

You have to scream GOOD MORNING! after you drink it to wake up and have a good start to the day.

It was a delightful wake up call. It’s sweet, a bit tart, creamy, cold and has just enough kick of ginger to wake up those taste buds in the morning. I really enjoyed it this morning.

Now I can’t wait to start the day.
