It’s that time of year again. If you live in a cold climate, you’re probably really ready for some sun. Flip flops, tank tops, sitting outside… the whole bit sounds like a dream that can’t come soon enough. Unfortunately, there’s still at least a month of chilly weather to deal with, so we’re doing the next best thing: eating like we’re on a beach. Fake out your senses with these citrus smoothies (fun fact: Citrus fruits are best in the winter season). We swear, if you close your eyes, you can almost hear the waves.
If a vibrant orange smoothie and tropical vibes aren’t enough to convince ya, the winter sniffles might. Hopefully, you’ve avoided getting sick thus far. If you do catch a cold though, loading up on vitamin C (hey, citrus!) might help it go away sooner. Make these healthy smoothies and then take a sip, smile, repeat.
Don’t let the green color fool you: This smoothie has an orange and half a grapefruit mixed in; the colors just get muted out by all the spinach. Luckily, between the citrus and strawberries, it’s still plenty sweet. There’s also a scoop of vanilla protein powder in there to make it extra filling.
