I recently bought a blender and I have been going through a crazy awesome smoothie phase. I’ve been working out more in the mornings and I think a smoothie is the perfect healthy post-workout drink to get my protein in and nourish my body after a run or weights session. After much experimenting, this is the smoothie recipe I have landed on as my favorite for the mornings! Healthy Morning Sunshine Smoothie Recipe:

Ingredients (makes about 2 servings): 

  • 1 banana
  • 1 cup of  frozen mixed fruit (I like to use the Bird’s Eye mixed fruit because you get some pineapple and peaches with strawberries, too!)
  • A couple ice cubes (the thicker you want your smoothie, the more you use)
  • 1 cup of almond mild or low fat milk
  • 1/4 cup of water (add more water for a less thick smoothie)
  • A scoop of protein powder (I have found vanilla or strawberry protein powder work best for this recipe)
  • 1/2 cup Greek non-fat yogurt

Morning Sunshine Smoothie Recipe


  1. Start with a couple ice cubes in the bottom of your blender
  2. Throw in your  frozen fruit and banana (cut in half)
  3. Add in the Greek yogurt and then, protein powder
  4. Add almond milk or low fat milk
  5. Add water and then blend away!
  6. Add ice or water as need be to make desired texture
