Ask anyone and they will tell you that I am a very determined person. Why push something off if I can do it now? Why do it starting in January if I can do it today?

I don’t really get why I should indulge and go crazy eating all this stuff during the holiday season – because I can do that everyday. HAHAH. Just kidding. What I mean is, everything in moderation. The amount of sweets I eat in December is the same amount I eat in March. A small brownie or bowl of ice cream will do. Am I crazy or are other people like this?!

Even though I’m sharing this awesome smoothie recipe, it won’t be replacing my nightly dessert (because I’m 100% sure that chocolate does the soul good). This smoothie would more likely replace my daily yogurt or my post work out granola bar. Gosh, I am so predictable.. my daily yogurt, am I old?! But I will argue that yogurt is good for the digestive system :)

It’s a green monster orange smoothie. 2 layers of healthy goodness!

The green monster layer has frozen banana, pineapple, mango, lots of spinach and a little bit of water or milk for blending. The orange layer has frozen banana, orange, mango, carrots, and orange juice. 2 VEGETABLES in total woohoo!! Layer the two together and you get something magnificent!

  2. These smoothies sound so good to recover from all the treats over Christmas vacation! And I love those impression glasses!

  3. Chocolate does do the soul good! :) And so does this smoothie – loving the banana pineapple and mango combo in this – they are some of my favs! Happy New Year Beth!

  4. Definitely a delicious and healthy way to start off 2016! I would really enjoy every sip of this smoothie. :)

  5. This is so pretty and looks so good! I’m craving this (which is good news since I’m trying to detox from Christmas cookies)! Love the added carrot. Yum!

  6. That’s a lot of smoothie! Looks like I’m going to be sharing my breakfast with the kids. I love green smoothies, and I love the layers of this beauty :)

  10. I love the layered smoothie….so much flavor and just so pretty!

  11. This looks amazing! I’m the same way about “resolutions”, why not start today ? I don’t need a new year to make me start something or change my goals!

  12. My kids love smoothies but I never really make them for myself. But this one is calling to me! I can’t wait to try it! Your pictures are beautiful too! :) 

  13. I am definitely going to start my day with this smoothie! It sounds so healthy and refreshing!  

  14. I definitely agree, this smoothie is so much fun! Love the colors and layers. I don’t believe in resolutions either. If I try to limit myself with a “healthy diet” I will go crazy and end up splurging, which is so not good for you. Everything in moderation is the ultimate key! Happy New Year, Beth!
