Standup Paddleboarding (SUP) is by far my favorite form of movement, even overtaking my love for lifting weights.  There is something incredibly magical about being out on the water and taking in all that nature has to offer.  Plus, you have to fully disconnect from all things social media, work, texting, etc which makes me super happy and is highly encouraged! 

Patrick and I have been on the hunt for SUP boards for about three years and finally landed an awesome deal on two boards and celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary on the water this weekend.  

Saturday morning, as we were prepping for a day of being out on the boards, I found myself inspired to create a smoothie that echoes my/our love for paddleboarding.  


The SUP Sunrise Smoothie ingredients are: 

➡️ 1/2 an orange
➡️ 1/2 of a medium roasted sweet potato
➡️ 1/2 of a banana
➡️ 1 tablespoon of flax and chia seeds
➡️ a dash or two of cinnamon and turmeric
➡️ ice and water to blend

Lots of natural anti-inflammatories and fat burners in this smoothie.

You could add a touch of honey or maple syrup if you like your smoothies a bit sweeter.
