Today is National Beverage Day. Yes, it’s a thing I didn’t know about either but apparently it’s celebrated every May 6th. To join in on the fun I decided to make a delicious punch. Not just any ole punch, though – a healthy punch! This punch is actually pretty healthy for you containing extra healthy stuff thanks to Lean Greens.
Lean Greens is a green powder supplement. It’s great for those of us that find it hard to get in our daily vegetables. Ha. That’s pretty much everyone I know.
Lean Greens contains 5 grasses, 3 superfood vegetables, 2 berries, 6 digestive enzymes and 2 metabolic ingredients that help you feel full and keep your gut in prime condition.
I could have thrown together any old punch but I wanted to drink something with a little more substance. Lean Greens added 30 calories, 6.5g carbohydrates, and 1g of protein to my Mandarin Sunrise Punch.
The grassiness flavor of Lean greens surprisingly made the punch taste more tropical. It almost has a mango pineapple taste even though those ingredients are nowhere to be found in this recipe. My son described this drink as being addicting. I say I have to agree!
Mandarin Sunrise Punch (with hidden greens!)
- 1/2 cup cranberry juice
- 3/4 cup orange juice
- 1/2 cup mandarin oranges
- 1/2 tbsp green powder supplement
- 14-16 ounce glass
Mix together cranberry juice and green powder supplement. Let settle.
Add good handful of ice. Slowly pour orange juice on top of ice. Top with oranges. Enjoy!
