Wake up to a refreshing smoothie made with fruit from the tropics. Adding wheat germ boosts nutrients and keeps you satisfied longer. We use almond milk for a dairy-free smoothie, but regular milk also works well. Both taste delicious and provide a wonderful way to start your morning or replenish after your workout.

Serves 2

1 cup frozen mango chunks

1 cup fresh pineapple, cut into chunks

1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk

2 tablespoons fresh lime juice

1/2 banana

4 ice cubes

1 tablespoon Kretschmer Original Toasted Wheat Germ

Place all ingredients except wheat germ into blender. Blend until smooth. Stir in wheat germ and serve immediately or store smoothie in a closed container overnight. The next morning, shake well and serve in two tall glasses.
