Just in time for the summer sunshine, start your morning with a Banana Orange Smoothie! This is a sponsored post; however, all thoughts and opinions are my own.
Are you ready for summer? I can honestly say that I’m beyond ready! We are in our first full week of summer vacation and right now, it’s almost like we are in reset mode. We are trying to just adjust between being constantly on the go to putting the brakes on and enjoying a more calm morning and daily routine. It seems like it takes a few weeks for my kids to get in the groove of being around each other 24/7 again, then once they get all the arguing out of them, it’s calm and peaceful at our house. I’m looking forward to that! In the meantime though, I’m going to enjoy my Banana Orange Smoothie and soak up a few moments outside on the porch as the sun comes up.
I’ve mentioned in the past that we’ve started to add Metamucil to our morning smoothies to help better our own wellness. They have recently released a new product called, Metamucil Free, which is a fiber supplement made with 100% natural psyllium fiber. It’s just two ingredients without any additives. The best part of course is that this delicious smoothie makes it easier for me to reach my daily recommended fiber intake and promote my digestive health.* It also helps you feel more full and less hungry in between meals.* That’s vital for me as I try to curb my eating habits. Of course, you can always rest assured that you have a good product because Metamucil has been the #1 doctor recommended brand for 85 years. That’s a lot of years.
Honestly, I couldn’t even taste it in this smoothie. I think that’s my favorite part, I don’t feel like it has the gritty taste that some powders have, it naturally blends right into the smoothie. This is one of my favorite smoothies and especially in the summer months, I can wake up easily and make one for my husband and I before he heads to work. The rush of getting out to the door subsides for a little bit and we can take it a bit slower in the mornings. That may just be my favorite part about summer…the slow down. We soak up the sun all day long and stay up late, then we sleep in a bit and enjoy our mornings. It’s nice to linger longer, isn’t it? Of course, I have my coffee in the mornings too, but I get my day started with this Banana Orange Smoothie, a simple combination of banana, orange, and Greek vanilla yogurt.
What’s your favorite smoothie variety? It’s time to try this one!
