Healthy eating and college don’t necessarily go hand-in-hand, but knowing the right tricks can help turn eating right into a daily routine. So have a seat and dine with D’Amico, your guide for navigating the health-food scene without taking a chunk out of your schedule.
If you haven’t picked up on it yet, I’m a huge fan of smoothies. They’re always filling, can substitute for a meal or dessert and can be made in basically any combination.
I was inspired by personal trainers I follow on Instagram, who always post delicious smoothie ideas. I took inventory of what food I had and decided to combine some classic ingredients to create this tasty, raspberry mango treat. Take less than five minutes of your day to try this awesome smoothie.
1 1⁄2 cups frozen raspberries
1 cup frozen mango chunks
1 cup fat free milk
1 tablespoon honey
1. Add milk, raspberries, and mango to the blender.
2. Pulse the blender until the fruit is mixed together but not completely smooth.
3. Add the honey and mix in with a spoon to get it to the bottom of the blender.
4. Blend until you have a creamy smooth texture but beware of over blending.
5. Serve and enjoy!
Don’t forget my helpful tip: Blend soap and water in the blender to ensure easy clean-up.
