Skinny Sangria Recipe for Fall
- large apple
- medium orange
- 1 cup cranberry juice
- 1 cup water
- ½ tsp. allspice
- 1 bag of SkinnyFit Detox Tea
Ready In: 10 min.
Step 1: Start with a fresh apple. Apples have an antioxidant called quercetin that supplies your lungs with extra oxygen – perfect for right before a brisk jog to get your circulation going! Core your apple and cut it into chunks.
Step 2: Grab a small, ripe orange. Nothing beats the winning combo of Vitamins A & C found in oranges! These vitamins fight the common cold and work together to boost collagen production for healthy, glowing skin. Cut up a few wedges and set aside.
Step 3: Pour 1 cup of cranberry juice. Cranberry juice is one of the best fruit juices for beauty! Its natural antiseptic properties give you healthy hair and teeth, plus it’s rich in salicylic acid for fighting acne. It also has less sugar than a lot other fruits.
Step 4: Combine apples, oranges, cranberry juice, water and allspice in a small saucepan. Sprinkle your allspice into the mixture and get ready for your kitchen to smell divine! Cinnamon, nutmeg and clove are a trio packed with anti-inflammatory benefits that “sweeten” your sangria without adding useless calories.
Step 5: Drop in your bag of SkinnyFit Detox Tea and bring the mixture to a boil. SkinnyFit’s original blend detoxes your body, boosts your metabolism and helps calm bloating. Bring your sangria to a boil and then lower the heat, simmering for a minute. And you’re done!
