Rise and Shine Citrus Smoothie

Rise and Shine Citrus Smoothie RecipeBreakfast gets stale with the same old menu, especially for kids, but with the usual morning chaos nobody has time for a full out meal.  When we are in a hurry, I love blending up a batch of our favourite smoothie’s for convenience.  Smoothie’s are the perfect power breakfast and the best part is that they are easily transportable.  This Rise and Shine Citrus Smoothie by Minute Maid is sure to put a little pep in your kiddos walk and put your mind at ease that they are getting the nutrients they need to start the day off right.

    • My eldest daughter is a picky eater but loves smoothies and I love that I can hide all the good veggies/fruits she might not normally eat in a smoothie. I hope you daughter likes her new breakfast choice. 🙂

  3. We love making smoothies. I dont have an actual recipe, we just toss in whatever fruit is nearing its expiration, with ice, yogurt and sometimes granola. We freeze the leftovers into popsicle molds because it rocks that way too!

  4. This smoothie recipe sounds tasty and nutritious. I’d leave out grapefruit juice because I can’t have with med I take, lol.

  5. I love smoothies and I especially LOVE greek yogurt! I may have to break out my blender and start making more of them now. I really like them in the summer. It’s hard to get really good fruit in the winter which is probably why I don’t make them in the winter.
