Breakfast on the run doesn’t have to dull. My Sunrise Breakfast Smoothie is great for a fast breakfast filled with peaches, pineapple, mango, banana, Greek yogurt, and Omega-3. Creamy, filling, and a perfect way to start the day!
I am teaming with Barlean’s OmegaPals to bring you one of my very favorite smoothies, my Sunrise Breakfast Smoothie. This smoothie uses Barlean’s Tangerine OmegaPals . Barlean’s sent me two bottles of their delicious OmegaPals in tangerine and Straw-Nana flavors. Omega-3s are a friend to growing bodies and brains. Barlean’s made Omega Pals as a seriously delicious way for kids to enjoy the essential nutrition they need. No gross oils or after taste- just fruity goodness.
Besides being packed with brain healthy Omega-3 this smoothie is one of my favorite flavor combos. I love tropical flavors like pineapple and mango. Paired with a seasonal peach and banana this smoothie checks all the boxes for fruity flavors. I love to add Greek yogurt to my smoothie for a little thickness and protein. I typically use vanilla, but plain or strawberry would be delicious as well.
When I was testing this recipe my kids could not get enough. Both of my boys like tropical fruits, and they where thrilled to see me putting pineapple in their smoothies! They did offer me the suggestion to add fresh pitted cherries next time….sounds delicious and we will see if there is some motivation left in ol’ mom to breakout my cherry pitter.

Frequently Asked Questions
Where can I find frozen peaches, pineapple, and mango- besides cutting it up myself?
I like mine at the grocery store or Target. There is typical a large variety and some pre-mixed options.
Why don’t you add ice to the smoothie?
It does not need ice is you are using frozen fruit.
I am not using milk- what do you suggest?
You can increase the juice portion or (if you want a very thick smoothie), you can omit the milk. However, I recommend adding a bit more juice.
What can I use instead of juice?
You can add a little water or a little extra milk. The liquid is to thin it so it is easier to drink.
Can I add protein powder?
Yes, add a scoop of your favorite flavor. I recommend vanilla or strawberry
How can I store leftover smoothie?
I store mine in the fridge, or you can pour into an ice cube tray and freeze for later.
