This blood orange sunshine ginger mango smoothie is made with juicy blood oranges, sweet ripe mango, bright lemon, zippy ginger and hydrating coconut water. The perfect in-between-seasons smoothie! Full of sweet and bright flavor and good for you vitamins and minerals.
So techinically, it’s spring, right? But technically doesn’t mean much when it’s been cold, gray and raining for the past 3 weeks 🙄. I mean, you’d think mama nay nay would be just as ready as us to see the sunshine and the flowers, but I guess for now she has other plans.
But even if the sun isn’t shining, I’m going to pretend that it is by drinking all of these blood orange sunshine ginger mango smoothies. Because they are full of all the good fruit that’s in season right now, and pretty much = sunshine in a glass.
Which, second to actual sunshine is not a bad option.
I have been sitting on this recipe for so so long! Just waiting for the right moment to share it with you. And now that it’s officially December, I think it’s exactly the right time to show you how to make THE MOST EPIC peppermint mocha bulletproof coffee.
Coffee + peppermint + chocolate = one of those drinks that every cold day in December deserves.
On the weekends, topped off with a little whipped cream situation, and on the weekdays just whipped up quick as can be and poured it into a thermos on your way out the door for the perfect start to your day. Waaay healthier than the coffee shop’s peppermint mocha – have you ever read that long long list of ingredients on their mocha syrup? I will take a scoop of natural cacao powder over that any day of the week.
Plus everyone will think you’re toting around a regular cup of coffee or tea, when in reality you’ve got the most delicious (and HEALTHY!) peppermint mocha keeping you company. Totally a secret worth smiling about. And if they’re lucky you might even let them in on your sweet little mocha thrill.
Happy MONDAY friends! Hope your first few steps into the week are off to a great start. Too soon to tell? Well how about we seal the deal by adding this bulletproof pumpkin spice latte to your morning mix. A cup of this on a brisk October morning is BOUND to jumpstart a kickass week.
First, let’s talk bulletproof coffee.
Are you guys on the train yet? If not, boy are you in for a lovely surprise.
Creamy, indulgent, full of healthy fats, and the perfect fuel to start your day off right.
Here’s what you’ll LOVE about bulletproof coffee:
The solid boost of energy that it gives you. One cup and your morning energy will feel stable and steady all the way until your first meal of the day.
The indulgence of a rich, creamy coffee that gets more nourishing fat into your diet.
An increased level of mental clarity – our brains are made up of about 60% fat, saturated fat being one of the main components of brain cells, making healthy fats an important part of keeping them functioning at a high level.
I’ve been bulletproofing my mornings for at least a couple of years, but only recently did I start playing around with a variety of flavors to keep things interesting. I have a good solid 6 or so that I rotate to keep things fresh, and.. get excited! I’m planning on sharing them all with you over the next few months 🙌🏼
Bulletproof coffee = really good.
Bulletproof coffee + fun flavor combos = infinitely better.
Today’s particular bulletproof variety? Pumpkin spice – the flavor anthem of fall.
