Foodie Swellness: Florida Orange Cinnamon Smoothie

_EB_3717

I’m always looking for new smoothie recipes (because I can get lazy and just make the same ol’ one over and over — like this zingy green smoothie is tasty, but it’s nice to have something new in the repertoire). This week, I was invited by Florida Orange Juice to a workout at OrangeTheory, and this creamy orange smoothie we enjoyed post-workout is a nice change from my usually berry-based ones. (Plus, while in general, I’m looking to reduce the sugar I drink on a regular basis, and have been using my Sodastream and my Bonne O to do so, I’m fine with some juice after a workout, and this one incorporates protein from the Greek yogurt — and your body needs replenishment of both after you’ve put it through a workout).  Here’s the recipe:

Florida Orange Cinnamon Smoothie

  • 1 1/2 cups Florida orange juice
  • 6 oz low-fat vanilla-flavoured Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup low-fat milk of your choice
  • 1-2 cups ice (depending on what consistency you’d like for your smoothie)
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon

Combine the ingredients in a blender and blend til smooth and creamy. Makes 2 servings.

Cheers!

Foodie Swellness: Mint Lime Detox smoothie recipe

Mint Lime Detox smoothie ingredients

When I was in Whistler hanging out with Olympian Kelsey Serwa, we got to make some of the Zico Coconut Water smoothie recipes and I’m completely addicted to one in particular — the Mint Lime Detox smoothie. It’s as refreshing and vibrant as it sounds and I’ve been having it a few times a week. Here’s the recipe (it makes 2 cups):

  • 1/2 cup Zico Original Coconut Water
  • 1/2 cup ice
  • 1 1/2 bananas
  • 1 orange, peeled
  • 1/2 lime, peeled
  • 3 mint sprigs, just the leaves
  • 1/2 cup kale or spinach (optional)
