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 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….

Ingredients

  • 1 cups fresh or frozen mango peeled + roughly chopped, about 1 1/2
  • 3/4 cup fresh orange juice + 1-2 teaspoons orange zest
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds optional
  • 1 ripe banana frozen if possible
  • 3/4 cup almond or coconut milk more if needed
  • 1/3 cup fresh or frozen raspberries
  • 1/3 cup fresh or frozen strawberries
  • half a small raw beet cut into chunks (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons goji berries
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ginger grated
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions

  • In a blender, combine the mango chunks, 1/2 cup orange juice and the orange zest. Add half of the banana. Blend until smooth, adding more orange juice if needed. Once smooth, add the chia seeds and blend until just mixed. Careful you don't want to grind the chia seeds into the drink. Pour the mango smoothie into a glass measuring cup.
  • In the same blender (no need to clean it), add the remaining banana half, raspberries, strawberries, beets (if using) goji berries, ginger and vanilla. Add the almond or coconut milk and blend until smooth, adding more milk if needed.
  • Pour the red smoothie into two glasses. Pour the mango smoothie over top of the the raspberry-goji smoothie and use a long spoon to mix them together - just a little. Drink up!

  1. HI!
    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!
    love, kim

    1. 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! 🙂

  2. This is just glorious! Totally could live off of these, they’re so pretty as well. And I’ve watched that GIF about 5 million times already – so cool!

  3. You are insane. In the best way. Your creativity astounds me and your talent is incredible. Keep it up girl, you are on a roll!

  4. That looks so delicious! For a minute I thought there was passion fruit in there. Will definitely try this!

  5. Teighan these look absolutely delicious!!!! Spring is finally here in the East Coast, so can’t wait to slurp on these on a warm day after a run around the monuments in DC.

  6. Agreed on the goji berries- I don’t really like them on their own, but they add a nice sweetness when combined with everything else. And the color on these is gorgeous!

  7. Hah? You said there is beets in the mix, but they do not show up in the instructions. I was actually pretty excited about beets, I am all about hiding veggies in my smoothies. Have never tried goji berry, have not even seen it in special stores… But love that smoothie!! Will try!!

  8. OMG Tieghan there is so much to love here. These flavors! Those colors! THAT GIF!

    So jealous of your sunny vacation; wish you could send some sun to Portland!

  9. I need to be checking your site every. single. day. Every time I come on here i’m like, “oh that looks good! Oh- that looks good, oh! what’s that? looks sooo good!” Next thing you know I have like 20 new recipes to try one week. Have fun in Florida! (oh and when I make this smoothie, which I will, I may be adding a little rum. :))

  10. I have every ingredient except the goji berries. Will look for them when shopping today – might even add some greens in there as well. This looks delicious! I am a smoothie a day gal so this is a no brainer for me! Thanks Tieghan!

  11. This is such an awesome smoothie, Tieghan! I love the addition of the beet, that’s one of my favorite tricks to use when I run out of berries and need some color. I can tell you’re having a good time in Florida (and may or may not be SUPER jealous!)
    p.s. Don’t stress about comments too much. Enjoy the rest of your time off!
