Waking up on a Wednesday

Yesterday a co-worker and I talked about the goodness of drinking smoothies, and how very easy they are to make.  It's a good way to get those fruits in, she said.  That got me thinking, maybe I could start off today with a delicious smoothie.  Usually, my week day mornings don't afford me much time, so we 'll go in for a super easy recipe.  Since mangoes are in season and they taste divine, how about a Mango smoothie? 

Breakfast Mango Smoothie

1 peeled and diced mango(ripe one preferred)
½ cup orange juice
1/4 cup greek yogurt (plain/flavored)
2 tablespoons honey
2 ice cubes
Throw all ingredients into blender until pureed.  Pour into glass/travel mug and enjoy.

This was an easy one.  Feel free to experiment with different fruits in season this time of the year, like berries. Add a banana for a powerhouse smoothie.  You could also do fruit-veggie combos that give you atleast one serving of each for the day.   I like to add the greek yogurt for calcium and protein.  There may be some who feel the OJ and yogurt are conflicting foods, and you may leave out one of the ingredients.  Have a delectable day!
