Springtime Pizza with Chipotle Romesco, Eggs + Shaved Asparagus Salad.
The last week has been total island living for me.
And clearly I have been lovin it. Maybe a little too much, but it’s not a super long vacation and I decided from the start that I was going to take full advantage of my time here in sunny Florida.
Plus, up until Saturday I had my brother here helping me relax and not think about all the things I really should be doing. My inbox is full and comments are building up….SO SORRY if you have had a question and I have not yet responded (I am slowly working my way through everything, but just keep emailing if you don’t get a response). Just blame my brother and his constant need of a margarita in his hand. The kid knows how to have a good time and his careless, “life is good” attitude is pretty contagious.
I have to say, I am going to majorly miss him when he goes off to school next year. Enter giant sad face.
Anyway, Kai showed me a good time this last week and I fed him good food. Seemed like a good trade-off.
I mean, right?
I tried SO hard to get him to try some tropical fruits and even made this Island Mango Goji Berry Sunrise Smoothie on the hottest day, BUT, while the kid is fun, he’s still crazy stubborn about not eating fruit.
Meaning he won’t even try them (who doesn’t like fruit!). Although, I am pretty sure if I would have spiked these smoothies with a little tequila he would have been all for them… next time.
Anyway, no matter where you are or what you are doing, these smoothies are AWESOME.
They are full of healthy antioxidants, vibrant colors and even a secret little veggie too.
I added a beet to get my colors just a little more vibrant. Worked liked a charm and you’d never guess there was a beet in here, but I think it’s kind of cool that there is.
The mango/goji berry combo is one that I had personally never tried before, but am pretty excited to use again. Normally I am not super crazy about goji berries, just because I actually do not find their flavor all that amazing, but when mixed with other fruits, those pretty, healthy packed berries are darn good and pack in some awesome flavor.
Bonus, these smoothies are super easy to make. Like five minutes and you’re done. YES.
Oh, and if you happen to be on vacation, I wouldn’t judge if you wanted to add just a little tequila….

Live a little!
I just made this smoothie! YUM. but a few questions. did you add beet to both layers or just to the raspberry layer? and when i poured my mango mixture onto my raspb. mixture, it didnt layer, it went straight through the middle and now its just pink. whats the trick to get it to layer? THANKS!
Hey Kim! The beet just goes in the raspberry mixture. As for layering, try and make the raspberry mixture a littler thicker than the mango (so less milk), this should help with the layering!
Happy Holidays! 🙂
WOW! It looks amazing and delicious! Love the colors and it makes me think about summer already.
This smoothie looks so bright and fresh, I just love the tropical flavors!
