Now that we’re into the second month of 2015, it’s beginning to feel like we’re stuck in the middle of winter. The worst is (hopefully) behind us, yet February and March can still bring some sketchy weather, at least if you live in the Midwest. Am I right or am I right?
And those pesky New Year’s resolutions…how are they going for you? While I don’t make resolutions, but rather goals, I have to admit that I’m not quite where I want to be yet. One of my goals is to stick to a healthier diet. Now don’t get me wrong, I don’t eat horribly, but I would like to sneak in some more fruits and veggies when I can. But when I make things like these Baked Red Velvet Donuts, Creamy Mac ‘N Cheese, or my new favorite dessert, it’s hard to stay on track. Know what I mean?
That’s where smoothies come in. They’re healthy, easy to make, and can serve as a quick breakfast or mid-morning snack. Even in I indulge in a few extra sweets, I automatically feel healthier when I whip a smoothie. I mean, they cancel each other out, right?
When I was doing some last minute shopping at Walmart last week, I came across one of my favorite brands, Pepperidge Farm. Did you know that they make sweet rolls? I didn’t know that either, so after I saw these Pecan Caramel Sweet Rolls, as well as these Apple Cinnamon Rolls, I just knew they had to make an appearance in my shopping cart.
And because the hubster and I go through a bottle of orange juice every week, I stocked up on my favorite, Tropicana. Since it’s made with 100% Florida Orange Juice, I always feel good (and healthy) whenever I drink it.
So when I got home, I was eager to pop those Pepperidge Farm Sweet Rolls into the oven. But because I’m trying to eat on the healthier side, I decided to make a creative twist with the sweet rolls and orange juice. And the first thing that came to my mind was, you guessed it, a smoothie! A little fruity, a little sweet and with a whole lot of flavor, this Cranberry Orange Sweet Roll Breakfast Shake was born.
The name of this Cranberry Orange Sweet Roll Breakfast Shake says it all. Frozen cranberries. Tropicana 100% Pure Florida Orange Juice, vanilla Greek yogurt and a sprinkling of Pepperidge Farm Sweet Rolls creates a thick, healthy, and satisfying drink. So easy to whip up and brimming with flavor, you’ll be sippin’ on this drink in no time!

Within minutes, this healthy breakfast shake is ready to inhale!
