Starting off your morning on the right (healthy) note isn’t always easy thanks to that pesky snooze button, traffic delays or last minute errands. Add in a morning training walk, and it can get pretty hectic! That doesn’t mean you can skimp out on breakfast though. It’s no joke that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, plus it can have a big influence on how the rest of your day goes. One easy way to make sure you get your morning meal in is to make a batch of smoothies to keep in your fridge or freezer throughout the week for an easy sip on the go.

So, here are pink smoothie recipes we created just for you! Let them fuel you for your training walks, and give you energy to attack that fundraising head-on. Plus, that pink hue will keep you inspired to be More Than Pink™. Kick off your morning with a little sweetness, and you’ll think pink all day long…
