The end of the third trimester is among us and I’ve been craving all sorts of food. I know many women get to the point where they get so full, but I just can’t seem to eat enough. I’ve been trying to eat more whole foods than processed being I constantly want to eat, so smoothies, nice cream, and other fruit based snacks have become the norm for me. We’ve been buying a huge variety of fruit at a time which is more out of the usual habits for us. We usually have 2-4 fresh fruits on hand at a time, but as I’m writing this we have 8, and we’re devouring all of them. This three ingredient sunrise smoothie was inspired by the husband’s current obsession of mango lassi. I like those but we had so many clementines and I thought it would go well in a mango smoothie. So voila, threw a few things together and this was the perfect outcome!

One of my favorite smoothies of all time is an island coconut water smoothie which I lived on my first pregnancy. We’ve since modified our morning smoothie to be more of a veggie and nutrient packed smoothie so I don’t drink these much anymore, but they are SO delicious. This reminded me of them in a way. They’re very easy to throw together in a blender, and are incredibly refreshing. If you need an immune boost or even a little afternoon pick-me-up, this is a great option.

How to make this three ingredient sunrise smoothie?

  1. Peel the clementines. I like to remove the stuff in the center too, but you don’t have to. It’s added fiber so if you don’t mind it, just throw them in whole once you remove the peel.
  2. Add all ingredients to a high speed blender.
  3. Blend on high until uniformly blended. In a Vitamix, this doesn’t take long, but if you have a lower power blender you may need to run it for a minute or two to ensure that the mango is all blended up and that any little pieces of pulp from the orange are small.
  4. Pour into a glass and serve immediately.

What you’ll love about this three ingredient sunrise smoothie?

  1. It’s packed with fresh fruit and naturally sweetened. I don’t like to add sugar to smoothies because fruit provide so much natural sugars. The coconut water is also unsweetened so it is just the natural fruit sugars.
  2. It’s so refreshing. If you haven’t tried a smoothie with fresh orange or citrus in it, you really should. You get the flavor of adding orange juice without the concentrate or added sugars found in many juices.
  3. Whole food plant based, vegan, dairy-free, gluten-free, and refined sugar-free. This is great for anyone looking to eat clean. There is nothing but whole foods in this drink!
  4. It’s kid friendly. An added bonus, if you have kids, this is surely one that you can serve to the without much resistance because it tastes like a dessert.
