Marilyn’s “First-Thing-In-The-Morning-“Let’s-Go-Get-It!” Smoothie

banana mango smoothie with stevia  in pure white background
You might think I’d get tired of drinking this smoothie (almost) every day for breakfast for the past several years, but I don’t. Every day I look forward to it; it’s sweet and satisfying, and I love the flavor combination of mango and banana. The chia and ground flax seeds give it fiber, antioxidants and omega-3s as an added boost. When I’m feeling especially virtuous I’ll add frozen chopped kale to it too! Serves one.


½ frozen banana
¾ cup frozen mango
1 8 oz. nonfat plain greek yogurt
1 tbsp raw, unfiltered organic apple cider vinegar (for digestion)
1 packet Emergen-C drink mix (any flavor)
1 T chia seeds
2 T organic flax seeds, ground
1 cup very cold water


Place ingredients in blender, mix well. Total: 28 grams of protein, 420 calories.

I’ve been experiencing foot pain recently—and I don’t know why it didn’t occur to me to turn my shoes over to look at the tread!!! When I did, I was horrified. No wonder I was having foot pain; my tread was worn thin. Yikes!!! And now tomorrow’s run gets a brand new pair of (my favorite!) @brooksrunning shoes! 🏃🏼‍♀️💜👊🏼 #runhappy #running #runningshoes #newshoes #mindthetread #personaltrainer #fitnessover50
