You may still be shaking off those old winter blues, but Spring has sprung! That means blooming flora, singing fauna, and basking in the sunshine -- but it can also mean allergies, inflammation, and facing the reality of getting your body beach ready! Getting in shape for summer doesn’t have to be a struggle though. Skinny Bunny is here with all the support you need to get going.
Let’s begin with a Springtime Celebration Smoothie! This is the perfect breakfast to get you going for the day while aiding your detox -- plus this recipe includes some awesome in-season fruit and veg for immune support!
1-2 cups of brewed Skinny Bunny Weight Loss AM Tea
(we like flavors like lemon, tropical chamomile, or mint for this recipe)
- 1 cup strawberries
- ½ a mango
- 1 handful of collard greens (or spinach)
- ½ cup Greek yogurt
- Ice - to taste
Brew tea as directed and let cool. Then simply blend all ingredients together in a blender. Depending on your preference, you may want to add more ice or more liquid until desired consistency is reached. For a creamier texture, you can also add banana or almond milk.
This smoothie is full of fiber and protein to keep you satisfied all morning. The Skinny Bunny tea will enhance digestion, boost your metabolism, and give you that shot of energy you need in the morning. Meanwhile, seasonal fruits and veg will amp up your immune system with antioxidants like vitamins A and C, potassium, iron, and folate. Plus greek yogurt provides magnesium and probiotics! It’s the ideal morning meal for springtime!
If you’re not a breakfast person, we also have a recipe for a nighttime treat that you’ll love. This twist on Golden Milk will give you the same great benefits as the AM Smoothie in a warm and soothing bedtime latte.
1 cup of brewed Skinny Bunny Detox PM Tea
(Try this recipe with Vanilla Chai or Pumpkin Spice flavors)
- 1 cup almond milk
- 1 ½ tsp ground turmeric
- ¼ tsp ground ginger
- ¼ tsp ground cinnamon
- 1 Tbsp coconut oil
- 1 pinch ground black pepper
- Sweetener of choice (i.e. maple syrup, honey, coconut sugar, or stevia to taste)
- ¼ tsp vanilla extract (optional)
Brew tea as directed and set aside. Combine all other ingredients in a saucepan, stirring occasionally over medium-low heat until incorporated and hot but not boiling. Add milk mixture to tea, stir, and enjoy!
It sounds delicious, but let’s look at why it works! Skinny Bunny tea again acts to promote digestion while relieving stress and anxiety to help you sleep. Turmeric, ginger, and cinnamon are all powerful antioxidants. Turmeric helps reduce inflammation throughout the body. Ginger and cinnamon both boost metabolism and immune function -- assisting your body’s natural regeneration, detoxifying, and healing overnight. The black pepper and coconut oil are invited to the party to help increase the absorption of the antioxidants in these spices. Our base liquid -- almond milk -- is chock full of iron AND vitamins A, B, C, and E!
Hopefully these recipes have inspired you to get Spring cleaning -- in your home AND in your body! Skinny Bunny AM and PM teas are the perfect accompaniment to any detox regimen. Shop Skinny.com for more information!
