Smoothies To Cleanse Your Thanksgiving Sins

Published

on

Nothing feels worse than the sense of guilt associated with pigging out on Thanksgiving. With endless appetizers, drinks, huge meals, a million side dishes, and desserts, most of us leave our festivities with a bad case of “food baby,” or belly bloat. It’s not permanent! The best thing to remember is that one day of extravagant eating will not kill you, so don’t beat yourself up over it. In fact, consider it a reward for surviving 2020.

GIPHY

Luckily, with each new day comes a fresh start. Get right back on track on Black Friday by fueling up with superfoods, and by drinking plenty of water. We know what you’re thinking, fruits and veggies aren’t always the most fun to eat but hear us out. Smoothies.

The best part about smoothies is that they require minimal effort while simultaneously being packed with nutrients! Just throw all of your ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth! If it’s too thick, add more of your liquid ingredient! Pour into a cup and sip away!

There are plenty of smoothie recipes that not only are delicious but nutrient dense! Here are some of our favorites!

Apple Cider Mimosas

Nothing quite says “wake up call” like a mimosa in the morning. Coffee who? But in all seriousness, this mimosa recipe is super easy and quick! Not to mention absolutely delicious.

Here’s what you will need…

  • Champagne
  • Apple Cider
  • Cinnamon
  • Sugar
  • Caramel
  • (Optional) Apple slices to garnish

What you’ll need to do

  • Pour about 1/8 cup of caramel onto a paper plate, and let it spread evenly.
  • In a small bowl, mix 2 tbsp of cinnamon and sugar.
  • Dip the rim of a champagne glass into the caramel. This will act as a “glue.” Then, dip the rim into the cinnamon and sugar mix. Aesthetic is everything, people!
  • Fill the champagne glass about half-way or three-quarters of the way with apple cider, and top with champagne.
  • Garnish with an apple slice on the rim.
