RECIPE: Sweet-Tang Healthy Smoothie

I whipped this smoothie up not long ago and my ‘sweet thang’ (pictured below) loved it’s sweet tang!


Greek Yogurt packs in the protein to keep you full all morning long.  The water cleanses your system and spinach cranks up the antioxidants! Honey lends a sweet, anti-inflammatory hand while the frozen pineapple and orange bring on the vitamins and tropical bliss.  The small piece of orange peel is what gives this gut-busting drink its tang, so include it! (if you’re fresh out of frozen pineapple, could omit it and do fine with a few cubes of ice instead)

1/2 cup frozen spinach

1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt

1/2 cup water

1/2 cup frozen pineapple

1/2 orange

Penny sized piece of orange peel

1 tsp honey

    Orange peel, eh? That’s something I haven’t tried adding to my smoothies before. I’ll have to give it a try!
