When we travel, one of the key components of any trip we take is that we’re fairly active. I love getting away and being able to relax on the beach – but only for a day or two. We use vacations to see new things, try new foods, and really focus on bringing vitality back into our lives in some way or another.
So whenever we can, we book hotels or resorts that really focus on helping us do that. Maybe they’re in the center of downtown so we can walk to a lot of our destinations. Maybe they have beautiful grounds that are fun to walk through. Maybe they have a strong focus on providing a healthy menu, too. Or maybe, when we’re really lucky, we get a combination of these things (and more!) like you do when you stay at Swissôtel.
The Morning Rainbow Smoothie recipe that I’m about to share with you is actually directly from their drink menu that you can browse at their hotels and let me tell you – it is DELICIOUS!
First, let me confess one thing: the Morning Rainbow Smoothie is listed as a drink for kids on the menu. However, I didn’t let that stop me when I was trying to figure out which one to make (which was incredibly hard because they all look SO good and had such amazing ingredients.) Obviously this Morning Rainbow Smoothie is pretty to look at, but there is so much more to this than looks!
Here are some of the benefits:
- Great source of electrolytes
- Good amount of minerals like potassium, manganese, copper, iron and magnesium
I love the combination of raspberry and mango so this was a must-make for me as soon as I saw it. Not only was it easy to make, but it left me feeling so refreshed afterwards. I actually had it for dinner as it was warm out and I was not feeling anything remotely heavy for my later meal.
I love that I was able to make the Morning Rainbow Smoothie at home, but this is definitely something I would LOVE to start my day with when we’re on the go. It’s so light and definitely wouldn’t leave me feeling like I’m ready for my morning nap after a hefty breakfast when I’d rather be moving around on vacation.
