Citrus Protein Smoothie |

Last week was a very eventful week for me and I have not had a chance to sit down and blog about it! I was asked to be on the KSEE 24 Sunrise morning show and talk about some wonderful produce from 1st Quality Produce! I made this yummy Citrus Protein Smoothie because it is a total immune boosting, flu-fighting drink to kick start your day. Citrus is packed with antioxidants and contains a great amount of Vitamin C which is helpful in protecting our bodies from damaging free radicals. Another fun fact about vitamin C is that is helps aid in the absorption of iron. 

At the Bar Method Fresno location the bar babes have just started a new 6 week challenge. I will be testing their body fat percentage and they will also be challenged to attend as many classes as they can! I have actually already done 1 round of body fat testing and will be checking their percentages 2 more times throughout the challenge. Along with working out comes healthy eating and I thought this nutrient packed smoothie would be great to help the ladies along the way. Many people are very diligent about working out…but it is the healthy eating that may be difficult for people. Coming off of the holiday season I am excited to see some positive results and healthy, happy people! 🙂

I love this smoothie because it has the Greek yogurt for staying power and I topped it with chia seeds for a boost of omega 3s and fiber. Also – you are making the smoothie with the whole fruit (rind removed) so you are getting the full benefits from the fruit – not just the juice.

  1. Hi! I am a mother who has a daughter away at college and of course always worrying if she’s eating nutritious meals. I know she is very busy so eating needs to be quick and easy; we have her a Bullet so she can make smoothies, which she loves but would love to see some great smoothies recipes that provide a robust amount of nutrition to keep her healthy and energized for her long days. Thanks so much! First time visiting your website it’s beautiful!

    1. Hi Gina! Thank you so much for the comment. I love the Nutri Bullet – if she is in to smoothies also pass on to her to be sure to include veggies and even healthy fats like almonds or nut butters. I like putting chia seeds in mine too! Thank you for the kind words 🙂
