Crushing a 75 or 30 hard challenge? I’ve been hooked on these challenges flooding my feed, and I’m dying to hear how yours is going! While you’re pushing through any goals, treat yourself with a Creamy Blood Orange Mocktail – a quick, tasty drink that fits right into your health journey.
Collagen water has been having its moment, so mixing it into this non-alcoholic bev was a no brainer! If you’re vegan or vegetarian, you’ll want to skip this ingredient since it comes from animal sources. Pure vanilla extract and agave balance out the tartness of the blood orange juice and Greek yogurt. Feel free to use honey, simple syrup, or another sweetener if you prefer. Perfect for an easy refreshment, this mocktail is a burst of flavor in just 5 minutes!
Let’s mix up the Creamy Blood Orange Mocktail! Start by combining freshly juiced blood orange, lemon collagen water, plain Greek yogurt, a touch of agave, and a dash of pure vanilla extract in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Give it a good shake until the mixture is well chilled.
Next, fill a glass with ice and strain the mixture into the glass. Garnish with a blood orange slice and an edible flower for a vibrant pop of color!
What are the health benefits of the Creamy Blood Orange Mocktail?
Fresh blood orange juice provides a dose of vitamin C, essential for immune support and skin health. Lemon collagen water adds collagen, promoting skin elasticity and joint health. Greek yogurt contributes protein and probiotics. It’s a tasty way to enjoy a refreshing beverage with added wellness benefits.
Can I use a different yogurt variety?
Yes, while I recommend plain Greek yogurt for creaminess, feel free to experiment with your favorite yogurt type to suit your taste preferences.
Is agave the only sweetener option?
Agave provides natural sweetness, but you can explore alternatives like honey or maple syrup.
What other mocktail variations can I try?
Swap the blood orange for grapefruit, berries, or even mango. Add a splash of sparkling water for extra fizz, or muddle some fresh herbs.
