Friends. I ached this past weekend. Sore throat, head and nose congestion all accompanied with a headache. Not fun! As I write this post, I am still feeling under the weather…
…not for long! I’ve made it a priority to drink this vitamin C-packed “cold buster” smoothie once a day! I used a food processor because my blender is broken. 🙂
I call it “easy” because it only contains three ingredients! Not including the dash of cinnamon on top. (1) frozen peaches, (2) orange and (3) non-fat Greek yogurt. The peaches are a great source of Vitamin C and especially oranges!! I know that Vitamin C won’t cure my cold but it will prevent it from getting worse. Thank you Vitamin C! Not only does the Greek yogurt thicken the smoothie but it gives me protein and energy I need to fight off this cold.
Is there a specific meal or beverage you make when you’re not feeling well?
Easy “Cold Buster” Smoothie
– 1/2 cup frozen no-sugar-added peaches. Using frozen fruit helps thicken the smoothie without needing to add ice cream or ice.
– half an orange
– 1/4 cup nonfat or low fat Greek yogurt
– a dash of cinnamon
