Best Smoothie Recipes to Make at Home
Whether you've always been blessed with a high metabolism or are watching your weight, this healthy orange smoothie is a great choice for eating healthy and watching the calories.
No diets or anything crazy here, but I decided to add in a few healthy snacks so when I'm yearning for more food, I can fill up on something good.
And do some crunches and apple picking... one of the cardio tummy exercises I picked up. And I'll play some basketball. Because its awesome.
Healthy smoothies are awesome. They are a fun and easy way to get healthy nutrients in on the go. If you're a member of a smoothie club (and maybe even if you're not) you know what I'm talking about.
If you're looking for a grab and go snack or drink, whipping up a healthy Orange Smoothie is super quick.
And the recipe... well, all you need to know is 1-1-1. 1 cup of low-fat vanilla yogurt (I use Greek), 1 cup crushed ice, and 1 cup orange juice. Add whipped topping if desired, but it's not essential.
