When I wake up in the morning and get ready for my morning workout routine, I make sure I don’t leave the house before sipping on a smoothie. Smoothies are one of my favorite morning pick me ups and a great post-workout drink too. I’ve made 5 to 6 different breakfast smoothie variations in the past month but this raspberry mango sunrise smoothie is the best and it’s pretty to look at too!
The bottom layer is blended with raspberries so it adds a bit of tartness to the smoothie; however, when you swirl in the sweet mango layer, it’s the perfect balance of sweetness. Having the mango mixture at the truly top gives off the “sunrise in a glass” vibe. This raspberry mango sunrise smoothie is also fitting for spring and summer because warm weather means cool drinks!
