COLD-BUSTING SMOOTHIE

Trying to stay healthy this winter? Make this cold-busting smoothie that’s packed with vitamin-c to help boost your immune system and keep your body feelin’ good! 

Today I am excited to be partnering with Minnesota brand —> Yoplait! A lot of people don’t realize this, but Minneapolis/St. Paul is home to many of America’s Fortune 500’s including General Mills. Minnesota made is my jam. Yoplait yogurt is actually what I grew up on and ate all the time as a kid! Now that I am a Greek girl, I was excited when they came out with their Greek 100 line. What makes me even more excited is the progress Yoplait has made over the last 3 years to reduce sugar, remove high fructose corn syrup, and get rid of aspartame.

Say “I” if you’ve had the sniffles at least once this winter. ME ME MEEEE! I’ve actually been really lucky in the sick department (knock on wood) and have only really had one minor cold. I hope I didn’t just jinx myself. I like to credit my active lifestyle and the fact that I’ve been eating copious amounts of vitamin c. It’s really not hard to do, especially if you throw everything in a smoothie like this one. Slerp.

One of the best ways you can prevent or cure a cold is by eating as many immune-boosting foods as possible. We’re talking…

  • citrus
  • berries
  • leafy greens

Thus- I threw everything in my blender and whirled away. A smoothie isn’t a smoothie without some Greek yogurt to smooth things out (and add protein!) and a frozen banana for good measure. No added sugar is necessary (ever). Vanilla is definitely my favorite flavor to add to smoothies. Fun fact- did you know that a cup of Yoplait Greek 100 Vanilla has 13g of protein in it. YASSSS.

Talk about a tropical party in your mouth. Seriously, this smoothie is on point. That citrus, though. In general this smoothie is a great healthy snack and an easy way to get a serving of fruit AND vegetables in. We all know we could use a little more of those in our lives.
