How do you make a Sunrise Detox Smoothie?
Simply add the frozen banana, mango, pineapple, berries, lemon juice and coconut water to a high-speed blender. Blend for about 2 minutes or until the mixture is very smooth. Pour into a large glass and serve!
Do I need to use frozen fruit in my smoothie?
When making smoothies, frozen fruit helps to give the smoothie a cold, creamy consistency. You can definitely use fresh fruit if you do not have frozen on-hand.
Replace the coconut water with ice cubes to get a similar consistency. Using ice cubes may require the smoothie to be blended for a longer time.
Can I use a regular blender to make smoothies?
While a high-speed blender is a better and quicker option, you don't have to use one in order to make great smoothies! If your blender is not a high-speed blender, it's best to use frozen fruit (instead of ice) and blend longer to get the smoothest consistency.
Are fruit smoothies healthy?
Well the answer to that question depends on who you ask. I believe that smoothies can be part of a healthy diet if they contain natural ingredients that are nutrient dense. Boost your immune system and enjoy a delicious breakfast at the same time!
Fruit smoothies contain high amounts of natural sugars but they also contain fiber when blending the whole fruit. A green smoothie is a good option if you are trying to avoid excess sugar in the diet.
Is this a coconut water smoothie?
Yes, this recipe calls for coconut water because of it's high potassium content. Feel free to replace the coconut water with filtered water if that is not a concern for you!
