Check-out this yellow Morning Sunshine Smoothie made with healthy fats, plenty of veggies and only a few sweet fruits. This combo will give you energy all day long without those blood sugar spikes that you get from sugary drinks (most store bought smoothies included).

This smoothie is perfect when you simply want to grab something healthy before heading outside in the morning. It’s one of those “advanced” smoothies that I like putting together when I feel creative in the kitchen. It’s also one of the most interesting blends I’ve made in a while.

So, why would you make this smoothie instead of buying one from the store? Let me tell you.

Homemade is simply better.
This smoothie is naturally sweet.
Will give you plenty of energy.
It’s loaded with healthy nutrients.
Homemade is always cheaper (and more delicious).
It’s fun to make it and you will feel great!
You control the ingredients list meaning you can use only the best.

As a general rule, my smoothies are always prepared with plenty of healthy fats, lots of vegetables, only a few fruits, plus spices and superfoods. This is roughly my formula for making delicious and healthy smoothies.

Ok! Now that you know all my secrets, it’s time to get blending!

I hope you’ll enjoy this recipe as much as I did and I wish you all the best in your journey. Don’t be a stranger around these parts!

Equipment

  • Blender

Ingredients

  • 1 avocado (skin removed, seeded)
  • 1 banana (skin removed)
  • 1 golden apple (cut in big pieces)
  • 1 clementine (skin removed, no seeds)
  • 1 big slice lemon (organic, with skin, cut in 4)
  • 6 frozen broccoli bouquets
  • 1/2 green kapia pepper (sliced big)
  • 1 tomato (sliced big)
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin coconut oil
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon powder
  • 1/2 tsp ginger powder
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric powder
  • pinch of vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp Himalayan salt
  • 1/2 long espresso (cold)
  • 250-300 ml water

Instructions

  • Peel, chop and cut all the ingredients according to my instructions.
  • Blend on medium to high speed until everything looks smooth and creamy.
  • Your smoothie is now ready! Wasn’t that easy?

Notes

You can always swap water for coconut water, coconut milk, almond milk or cashew milk. While coconut water comes with electrolytes that help maintain a healthy balance in your body, the others will also add plenty of healthy fats to your smoothie, making for a creamier drink.
Feel free to skip the coffee if you don’t take caffeine, it’ll work just fine without it.
One side note on the lemon: if you’re not using an organic lemon make sure to remove the skin before adding it to your smoothie. Most conventionally grown citrus fruits are sprayed with chemicals which remain in the lemon skin even after you wash it.
