I am here with your “Morning Sunshine”. This is something that most of my mornings these days start with. I am calling it “Morning Sunshine”. It is the simplest juice once can make and it definitely is a great start for your day, not sugary at all.

Whew!!! I am exhausted just writing it all down, but boy what a good list. What do you say?
Do you agree it is a great start?
So, why delay, here is the simple recipe and pic.
Oranges – 2 medium sized (it comes to about 1 cup of juice)
Fresh Coconut Water – 1.5 cups (you can used can ones too, but make sure the ingredients only say coconut water and no additives)
- Juice Oranges and mix the juice with coconut water. Stir and Enjoy!!!
Serve it chilled or at room temperature. You can keep it in fridge up-to-a-day, but as always fresh is the best. I usually eat this with my morning Banana and that is a great breakfast to begin your day with. It has Carbohydrate, Protein and Fat, what else do we need, right? :)
This is my contribution to Healthy Me & Healthy US event that I am hosting this month.
That’s all for now. Take care till next post.
