There was an upset tummy in house this morning so, even though this morning I was planning on making some pancakes or some other hearty family breakfast, I decided that a tummy soothing smoothie would be a better choice.
Now I know that some of you are going to say that yogurt isn’t good for tummy problems. I am aware that, in some sour tummy situations, dairy is not recommended. I also know that in this case, yogurt would be just the thing.
The light yellow color of this smoothie reminded me of the early morning glow of the sun, so I called my smoothie…
Good Morning Sunshine Smoothie (4 – 8 oz smoothies)
1 cup nonfat yogurt – I used vanilla
1 mango, cut in chunks
1/2 cup water
1 scoop whey protein powder
1 cup of ice
1. Place the ingredients in your blender in the order listed.
2. Begin blending on low and slowly increase speed to high.
3. Blend until smooth.
My faithful assistant stated right off, “If I don’t like this, I’m not drinking it!” Thanks, buddy! The brave soul took a sip and declared that he liked it and would finish it. This child will eat just about anything but for some reason, he doesn’t love smoothies. Could be the vegetable sneaking. Maybe. Okay. It is. If you want to add some veggies to this, I would go with some grated zucchini.
It’s supposed to snow tonight. Ugh. I may have to grab a couple more mangos today so I can have a little sunshine in a glass tomorrow morning, until the storm passes.
