Good Morning Strawberry Mango Plus Smoothie

By Jodee Weiland

Getting up in the morning and grabbing a healthy smoothie is a great way to start your day! A smoothie, done right, can be a high-fiber breakfast, which can help you lose weight if that’s a personal goal. But even if you are not looking to lose weight, a healthy smoothie has all sorts of health benefits, like reducing the risk of heart disease. My Good Morning Strawberry Mango Plus Smoothie does all of that for you, and it tastes delicious as well!

http://learnfromyesterday.comIn my smoothie, I intentionally wanted to make sure I had at least 200 calories because anything less is not substantial enough to substitute for breakfast. Everyone needs fuel for their bodies to function properly. I wanted to make sure I had minerals and vitamins included, plus some protein and at least five grams of fiber. It was for these last two reasons, I included fruits, a vegetable, and almonds.

  • 6 whole almonds
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • Optional: 1/2 teaspoon organic honey or more to taste, if preferred
