Tropical Fruit Smoothie

My favorrite way to start off the day is with a liter of lemon water and then a large fruit or green smoothie. I find that when I start the day off on the right foot with that combination, I have a much easier time sticking to a healthy day and easily get my daily intake of fruit and greens, as well as water. I do usually follow a Raw till 4 approach, with some days with more raw, others with more cooked food. As much as being 100% raw is the ideal, at least for me, it isnt super feasable for a few reasons.
The costs and availability of very good quality produce are two of the biggest factors. Also, convinience and lifestyle come into play. I find that Raw till 4 gives me a balance between optimal health and foodie. This smoothie is jam packed with natural sugars and nutrients. Its a great pre-workout smoothie too, with all those easily digestible carbs.
