While we've got our favorite go-to smoothie formula down to a T, we're still always looking for something new and delicious to try. And a smoothie with a cocktail inspiration that includes collagen peptides? That's definitely something we're eager to sip.

This easy recipe, from A Balanced Approach to PCOS by Melissa Groves Azzaro RDN, L.D., is the perfect thing to make for a post-workout meal or a fun breakfast option. "So many smoothies are overly sweet to me," says Azzaro, "and I've always loved a sweet-tart sangria." And so, she thought up this sangria-inspired smoothie, which has a collagen boost to support a healthy gut.*

And in fact, every ingredient in the recipe was carefully chosen for its particular benefits. "Pomegranate and citrus can help the body detox excess estrogen from the body and are high in antioxidants," explains Azzaro. "Raspberries are high in fiber and vitamin D. Adding cinnamon helps keep blood sugar balanced."

So next time you wrap up an at-home workout or when you've completed another run, try this citrus and berry blend for a perfect nutritious and hydrating treat.
