Well, I don’t know about you, but I definitely overdid-it with food over the holidays.  As usual, I ate way too much, and my jeans are fitting a little tighter.  Happens to the best of us, right?

Along with eating too much, I also ended up getting a nasty cold and cough, which I haven’t been able to shake.  I’m feeling like my body is in need of some TLC and some healthy fruits and veggies.  To soothe my sore throat, and to get a little more vitamin C, I was really craving something cold.  This Strawberry Pomegranate Smoothie was the perfect remedy!

All you need to make this super-healthy smoothie, is a blender.  It’s perfect for a healthy snack, or a great breakfast when you need to get out the door quick.

This smoothie packs a punch, with two full servings of fruit, a full serving of dairy, and since its made with Greek yogurt, it also provides about 7 -12 (depending on what type you use) grams of protein which will help you stay fuller longer.  The strawberries are an excellent source of Vitamin C and fiber.  Additionally, pomegranates are considered a super-fruit, as they are a great source of Vitamin C, B-12, folate and are a know to fight free radicals within the body.  I feel better already knowing I’m putting such a healthy food into my body!
