HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!
I’m so excited for 2015.
I’ve made goals.
I love new beginnings and re-starts!
And protein smoothies.
They are quick and easy and easily digestible.
Today’s smoothie includes blood oranges, tart cherries, and cranberries.
Blood oranges contain vitamin c and fiber as well as important antioxidants. Tart cherries have been shown to aid in sleep due to melatonin properties as well as anti-inflammatory properties. Cranberries have vitamin c, fiber, cancer-fighting phytochemicals, and maganese.
Combine these power fruits with protein and the calcium in the milk and you have a smoothie ready to help you power through the new year (and new YOU!)
Combine the milk, protein, honey, cranberry juice, tart cherries, and blood oranges in a glass. Blend in a blender or with an immersion blender. Serve immediately or store in the fridge for later consumption.
