Citrus Ginger Smoothie

Wrap your taste buds around this:
citrus, ginger, cinnamon, and vanilla.
While mimosas are the usual suspect for Easter brunch, this year I wanted to try something different. Keeping it citrus based was part of my plan since a healthy dose of vitamin C helps keep those spring sniffles away. I started with the juice of two tangerines and one lemon. Next I added ginger, cinnamon, and whisked in a half a cup of vanilla yogurt. The result was sweet and spicy. The ginger and cinnamon added a wonderful depth to the flavor while the 2 types of citrus balanced each other out. The smooth and creamy texture of the yogurt made these tasty drinks absolutely divine. What a great way to start a lazy Sunday afternoon.
Happy Easter!
