Is anyone else out there feeling desperate for simple, healthful food after that holiday? Yeah, me too. As much as I love stuffing, casseroles and pie, they do take a toll on your energy level, complexion and waistline. Personally what I’ve been craving is fresh fruit, lots of water and NO bread! So I threw together a refreshing smoothie and a batch of low-fat breakfast muffins with broccoli and feta (which I’ll post here in a few days). Enjoy:
Orange Berry Smoothie
A refreshing blend of orange, strawberry & banana with coconut milk for creaminess.
- 1 cup orange juice
- 1 cup coconut milk (light)
- 1 cup frozen strawberries
- 1 banana, frozen or fresh
Blend all ingredients together and enjoy cold. Makes enough for two!
I used a frozen banana because I always keep them handy; a little over a cup of the OJ and coconut milk, because that’s what I had left in the jugs in my fridge; and a heaping cup full of frozen strawberries.You can use full-fat coconut milk if you don’t mind the extra calories, and of course you can substitute greek yogurt to make it extra thick.
This is SO fresh and tasty in the morning!
