If you got a little crazy with the burgers this weekend, and really who could blame you, then I have got the perfect way to get you back to feeling refreshed and healthy this week. These sunshine citrus berry smoothies. Aka my current obsession. Possibly because of that color.

I mean really the color is everything to me and my little girly self. The smoothie is so pretty it could almost be an accessory.

But fortunately, it isn’t just pretty. It is light and refreshing and so yummy. The perfect quick summer breakfast or snack because really who feels like a big heavy breakfast before heading outside to soak up the sunshine? And this smoothie is chock full of good for you fruit with no added sugars or sweeteners.

It is super easy to make too. You can absolutely feel free to use all the lovely fresh summer berries OR you can pop two cups of frozen mixed berry blend into your blender. I actually prefer the frozen berries in these smoothies- partially because it seems like a shame not to just eat those gorgeous fresh summer berries plain or in some sort of light summer dessert and partially because the frozen blends are so inexpensive. Plus the frozen berries are already nice and cold and give this smoothie a really good consistency without needing to water things down with ice.

Get the day started off right

In fact, the liquid you use in the smoothie also ups the flavor factor here. I add about a half cup of no sugar added orange juice for that nice bright sort of sweet good morning flavor. Then I add another half cup of either lemon juice or no sugar added lemonade for that tart background to balance out all the sweet from the berries. To finish? A half cup to 3/4 cup of any milk you like depending on the consistency you want. I regularly make this with plain milk because we keep our fridge stocked with it since our daughter drinks a lot of milk but have also made this beaut with coconut milk for a tropical twist on this drink.
