Strawberry Banana Green Sunrise Smoothie

Strawberry Banana Green Sunrise Smoothie || Sweet Treats and More

Life lately has consisted of lots of early mornings thanks to my 20 month old who won’t sleep in past six am!  To think I used to wake up at five every morning to exercise boggles me.  The thought actually makes me a little nauseous.  And I looked forward to it?  What happened to that girl?  

One thing I do look forward to when I wake up that early now is breakfast.  I’m back on my green smoothie kick and this Strawberry Banana Green Sunrise Smoothie is one I love.  I shared this recipe over at I Heart Nap Time last year when I was a contributor and  I’ve kind of been itching to share it with you because it’s a fav.  It’s so simple and combines two of my favorites- strawberries and bananas.  Freshly squeezed orange juice makes it the perfect “sunrise” smoothie.  You know, since we are up at the crack of dawn.

The little tyke loves it too.  Mr. Miles and I slurp our green smoothies down while we wait for the rest of the world to wake up:)
