Wowow! Am I SO excited to be back in Texas! I've been on the road the past few weeks and it was a very fun time, but I'm looking forward to being back home, hanging with friends, starting some New Year's goals, and getting back to a schedule.

I'm also very much looking forward to getting back to eating healthy foods! With all the holiday and road travel treats (feeling quite BLEHhh), I'm pumped to get back to all the fruits and vegetables and nutritious meals. All the praise hands for this one, friends.

Over the holidays, I spent a lot of time in Florida, where a few family members grow all kinds of different oranges and grapefruit on trees in their very own backyards. In the mornings, we'd wake up and pick fruit right off the tree. (so cool, right?) So I decided to create a Wintertime Citrus Sunrise Smoothie inspired by fresh citrus and with the help of Truvia® Natural Sweetener Spoonable.

Truvia® is by far my favorite sweetener. I use it in my coffee, tea, and in my smoothies too! It is a zero-calorie, stevia-based sweetener and doesn't have that funky bitter taste. You can find it on the baking aisle (I shopped at Kroger!) near the other sweeteners, and you can even try a free sample HERE and grab a coupon HERE. As we all know, I have a major sweet tooth. But life with less sugar is just as sweet.

For this smoothie, you will need some fresh oranges, sliced bananas, a few strawberries, some Greek yogurt, a splash of cranberry juice, and a couple handfuls of crushed ice.

Place all ingredients in a blender and get ready for the very best start to your day!

1. Add all ingredients above to blender, and blend 1-2 minutes until everything is smooth. Add a straw and enjoy!!

Hope your new year is off to a great start, friends!

  1. This is such a delightful smoothie! You have me wishing I had an orange tree in my back yard too - but it seems to be orange season here in Atlanta so next time I'm at Kroger am going to have to get the ingredients for this smoothie as it sounds wonderful! So love your use of Truvia® Natural Sweetener Spoonable in this recipe! #client
