A mighty breakfast smoothie to fuel the body with buzzing energy. Featuring mango, melon, mandarin, mint (mmmm!) and ginger for a balanced refreshing yet warming soothing ayurvedic drink.
The Mighty Monday Smoothie — that is one smoothie that really puts the ‘mmmm’ in my Mondays, featuring all ‘m’s: mango, melon, mandarin and mint. You may substitute for other fruits (provided they start with an ‘m’, just kidding!) but you wouldn’t want to omit the mint! This is what gives it the refreshing depth combined with the warmth of ginger — an invigorating contrast that is sure to give you that zingy kick to start off your Monday. Give it a try and you tell me!
As all smoothies, this is super quick to make. To save time on a Monday morning, peel and chop all fruits the night before, place them in a mason jar in the fridge. In the morning, I usually use a stick blender and I blend them straight in the jar, then drink from the jar or screw on the lid and take away with me (if I am in a real hurry). Blending the fruits in the morning saves them from oxidizing than if you were to keep them overnight.
