Morning Sunrise Detox Smoothie

Start your day with a little sunshine with this morning sunrise detox smoothie! It is packed with a variety of "sunshine" fruits that help to awaken the mind and body. Ditch the coffee - this is all you need to help feel refreshed and totally alive!

Lemon is a natural energizer; it hydrates and oxygenates the body so it feels revitalized and refreshed. Consuming lemon, in some liquid form (whether in water or a smoothie) in the morning can help to ready your digestion for the day and flushes out unwanted materials. It is also great for purifying the blood and aids in weight loss by helping improve fat metabolism. 

Pineapple contains the digestive enzyme bromelain, which has been proven to aid in digesting protein, breaking down fats and reducing inflammation. Mango and banana also help keep the colon clean, and will help reduce toxic build-up in the intestines, mitigating any chance for these toxins to re-absorb back into the blood stream!

Ingredients: (serves 1)
- 2 cups chopped mango
- 1 lemon, juiced
- 1 golden delicious apple
- 2 cups chopped pineapple (make sure it is ripe, or you will get, what I like to call, "battery acid mouth")
- 1 ripe banana (optional - if you can't digest banana and pineapple together, leave out the banana)

Blend the above ingredients in a blender such as the Vitamix and enjoy immediately!
