Orange Berry Vanilla Green Smoothie

IMG_8778

Here’s a super duper quick post. Whenever I make a smoothie that turns out exceptionally yummy, I have to share it with you. Normally I just toss this and that in trying to incorporate greens, 1-2 fruits, protein, and fiber. The below combination turned out perfect for a morning smoothie with its bright citrus influence. It was light but still great fuel for my workout. Cheers!

As well as known benefits for the urinary system, cranberries tout antioxidants and I appreciate the tarter profile as well as low glycemic index. Even natural sugars can cause glucose overload and make smoothies high calorie as [...]
