Pink Power Breakfast Smoothie

HealthyLatinFood_PinkPowerSmoothieAfter a couple weeks of having plain toast for breakfast or, even worse, not having breakfast at all because I was too busy running out of the house on time, I’ve decided it’s time to get back to my healthy habit of making smoothies.

Never one that was afraid of a challenge, and because I knew I’d be going back to the gym this week, I decided that there was no better place to start than a protein-packed smoothie thanks to Greek yogurt.

Of course, I’m also always a big fan of using what else I have around the house–this time it included dragon fruit and Meyer lemons that I recently received as a gift from my parents. Sure, it might sound like a weird combination but what I loved about this smoothie is that both raspberries (which I bought) and the dragon fruit have a ton of Vitamin C and antioxidants. Tell me, is there any better way to start the morning? Nope!
