I love mornings. The girls and I all get up around the same time. We make a big smoothie together and sit around the table coloring and making a plan for the day. If it's warm enough, we walk outside and water the plants. The girls love to see if anything got bigger overnight. I have a mint plant growing in a pot on the deck steps and it's grown so much with all the spring rain we've had this week. It reminded me of a mint smoothie I used to make quite a bit last year. I whipped it up again a couple of weeks ago and the girls and I have been hooked ever since. I hope the mint plant can keep up with our appetite! Mint is great for mental clarity and a super refreshing way to start your day!

I don't know many children that would ask for mint in their smoothie, but something changes when a child harvests food for themself or helps prepare their own meal. I'm so excited to see more families gardening during this time at home. It is a wonderful thing, for children especially, to be able to see where their food comes from and help pick and eat, literally, the fruit of their labor!

You hardly need a recipe for a smoothie (they are pretty forgiving!) but here is a rough guide! I love it with frozen mango but it's just as delicious with frozen strawberries!

Tag me on Instagram if you make it - I would love to see!

serves 2-3

I've been using Pure Synergy Superfood Powder & Pure Radiance C Powder everyday in my smoothies and highly recommend them, but ff powders aren't your thing you can substitute with a couple handfuls of spinach.  

3 ripe bananas
2 cups frozen mango chunks
a small handful of fresh mint leaves (our leaves are small and we pick about 10-15)
2 cups coconut water or almond milk
2 tablespoons Pure Synergy Organic Superfood Powder (optional)
1/2 teaspoon Pure Radiance C Powder 

Add everything to a high speed blender and blend!
