This is a compilation of smoothie recipes shared on Project Healthy Ever After’s Facebook page for Smoothie Tuesday #6. If you missed previous Smoothie Tuesdays, you can check out the smoothie recipes here.
Today I’m sharing a Good Morning Sunshine Smoothie for Smoothie Tuesday. If you want to start your day off right, this smoothie has lots of healthy goodness: orange juice which which helps make collagen needed for healthy skin; peaches a source ß-carotene which converts into vitamin A in the body – this is essential for vision; bananas for lots of energy; oats help lower blood cholesterol; yogurt which contains healthy bacteria; cinnamon helps control blood sugar and stimulates brain activity and honey is high in antioxidants and immune-boosting compounds.
We had a fantastic turn out for today’s Smoothie Tuesday. There were so many delicious recipes shared that it is going to be hard trying to decide which one to try first.
Check out what everyone brought and if you try one be sure to report back here as well as with who shared their smoothie delight.

Eat Healthy, Be Happy shared her Strawberry Mango Avocado Smoothie
(amounts are approximate since I rarely measure…)
3/4 C. strawberries
3/4 C. mango chunks
1 frozen banana, broken in chunks
flesh from 1 ripe avocado
1/2 cup kale or spinach (only fresh, not frozen)
Use fresh or frozen fruit, as available, but use at least one kind of fruit in frozen form so you can leave out the ice. Your smoothie will be smoother without ice.
2 heaping spoonfuls of your preferred protein powder
1/2 C. orange juice
1/2 C. coconut milk
1. Place fruit and protein powder into blender. Pour liquids in and cover blender
2. Start blender on high. You may need to stop blender a few times and/or lower speed to get all ingredients blended. The color is going to be odd, but it tastes great.
3. When all ingredients are incorporated, pour into 2 large cups. Enjoy!
