Wake up happy with this Sunrise Smoothie full of bright and refreshing citrus and tropical fruits!

I’m so happy about today’s post! Not only are you getting a yummy smoothie recipe, but I’ve teamed up with my blogging friends to give one lucky reader a BlendTec Designer 675 and Twister Jar! Mine has seriously changed my life! We use it for SO many things! Believe me when I say, you WANT this blender!

Before we get to the giveaway, let’s talk smoothies! I’m a fruity smoothie girl. I’m trying to get more greens into mine so they are healthier, but for today, let’s just go with plain fruit, okay?

 

This is one of my favorite combos because it’s a creamy, frothy texture with a pretty pale color, and the combination of fruits make me feel refreshed and ready for my day.

 

It’s also a good one to throw spinach in IF you wanted to sneak some veggies into your diet. (And it will be GREEN. If you add berries to your green smoothie, it might be brown. Not so appetizing.)

Okay, I’ve had my Blendtec blender since about New Year’s Eve 2014. That’s almost 6 1/2 months now, which is roughly 194 days. I obviously use this thing at least once a day if I have 238 blends going on already! It’s worth the price, if you don’t win it. Seriously! Start saving!

 

The best way to blend smoothies is to have your liquid on the bottom (milk, water, juice), then add the soft items (yogurt, fresh fruit), then add the hard items (ice, frozen fruits). Then hit the smoothie button (the second one from the left) and voila! Your smoothie is ready! Smooth as can be and oh so frothy!
