Over the past few weeks, I’ve been trying to live a healthier lifestyle. I’ve changed the way I eat. I’ve added exercise back into my daily routine. I’ve tried to up my water intake. For the most part, I feel like I’ve been making smart choices but with all the changes I’ve been making, my body has been, let’s just say, a little confused. I mean, let’s face it, sometimes even the most conscious lifestyle can lead to occasional constipation. Instead of dodging the subject (it’s not one that everyone wants to talk about after all), I decided to share my favorite morning smoothie recipe, that, when I add MiraLAX®, helps me not only beat occasional constipation but also is a delicious way to start my day. Read on to find out how to make my amazingly delicious Layered Raspberry and Mango Smoothie that does more than just fuels my day.
Now before I share my Layered Raspberry and Mango Smoothie recipe, let’s talk a little more about the factors that lead to occasional constipation for a busy on-the-go mom why don’t we? If your life is anything like mine, you’re busy, busy, busy and here, there and everywhere. For me, even though I really work hard to make smart choices, sometimes I don’t drink enough water. Sometimes I eat bad food. Sometimes I’m just not at home at the right time. All of these seemingly harmless everyday occurrences are just part of life but when they combine, the truth is they can cause occasional constipation. Not only can this make me feel uncomfortable immediately but it can drag on for days. That’s why I add MiraLAX® to my morning smoothie when I need to combat occasional constipation. MiraLAX® works with my body’s natural processes to provide effective relief from occasional constipation and does so in a gentle way that doesn’t cause harsh side effects. It’s different from stimulant laxative pills because instead of making me go by forcefully stimulating the nerves in my colon, MiraLAX® works with the water in my body to hydrate, soften and ease, unblocking my system naturally. And since I can easily pick up MiraLAX® in both a bottle form and as the MiraLAX® Mix-In Pax that I can take anywhere at my local CVS, it’s a perfect solution that’s easy on my body and can be used at home or take on-the-go.
So, for those of you who have added MiraLAX® to your shopping list, I’m sure you’re wondering about the best way to take it. The good news is you can mix MiraLAX® into pretty much anything and use it once a day for no more than seven days for occasional constipation relief. The great news is that with my Layered Raspberry and Mango Smoothie recipe, you’ll get relief in the most delicious way! So, are you ready to see how to make it? Let’s get started.
- ½ Cup of Frozen Raspberries
- ½ Cup of Frozen Mango
- 1 Cup of Plain Greek Yogurt
- ½ Teaspoon of Honey
- Blend together the raspberries, ½ cup of yogurt and ½ MiraLAX® Mix-In Pax. Set aside.
- Blend together the mango, ½ cup of yogurt, honey and ½ MiraLAX® Mix-In Pax. Set aside.
- Fill your glass ½ of the way full with the raspberry mixture.
- Chill for 10 minutes.
- Fill the rest of the glass with the mango mixture.
- Top with diced mango and raspberries and enjoy immediately.
As you can see, this Layered Raspberry and Mango Smoothie has very few ingredients, making it an easy and delicious way to start the day. Even better, the combination of raspberries and mango is absolutely delicious and perfect for summer! To start my smoothie, I added my raspberries and 1/2 cup of my Greek Yogurt to the blender.
After blending my ingredients together, I transferred my mixture to a measuring cup and sat it in the freezer. Next, I rinsed out my mixer and added my mango, the remainder of my yogurt, honey and the other 1/2 of my MiraLAX® Mix-In Pax to my blender and mixed it well.
Once I had both the raspberry and mango layers of my smoothie mixed with MiraLAX® Mix-In Pax in each part, I pulled out a glass and removed my raspberry mixture from the freezer. I then used it to fill my glass half way full. I placed my glass back in the freezer for 10 minutes (this prevents the layers from blending together) and then added my mango mixture on top of it.
After adding some diced fresh mango and raspberries to the top and putting in a straw, my Layered Raspberry and Mango Smoothie was perfectly ready to enjoy.
Now, I will say that this smoothie tastes divine and is so cool and refreshing! And the best part is, with the inclusion of MiraLAX® in both layers, it’s a perfect way to beat occasional constipation.
