Sunshine & Superfood Smoothie - Michelle McGuinness 1

I love this smoothie recipe for many reasons: It is super easy to make, packs a huge amount of nutrients and tastes like you are sitting under the sun in a tropical paradise.


  • 1/2 cup cubed fresh papaya, peeled and seeded
  • 1/2 cup mango
  • 1/2 tsp. grated ginger
  • 1/2 tsp. fresh turmeric or 1/4 tsp. turmeric powder
  • 1/2 cup almond or coconut milk
  • pinch ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp. maca powder
  • 1 scoop of plant based vanilla protein powder


Place all of the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth and creamy. Top with coconut flakes for some added sweetness and enjoy!

About Michelle: I work as a financial analyst in Boston, MA but wanted a project outside of my 9-5 responsibilities – I started my blog as a way to share my healthy recipes and fitness ideas. I am obsessed with trying new fitness classes, cooking & experimenting with food, trying new restaurants & eateries, traveling, and hanging with family and friends. You can find me in an early morning Pure Barre class or strolling through my local Whole Foods!
