It’s always smoothie season and second winter (also known as spring for some of you lucky people), is no exception. So if you’ve found yourself wallowing deep in the winter carb rut, dust off that blender and jam pack your day with some fresh citrus fruits.
Yes, citrus fruit. I know many of you are anxious to slide right into berry season, but we need to make sure don’t totally we totally blow past citrus season. My personal favorite happens to be the blood orange. With its gorgeous maroon color and sweet-tangy almost raspberry-like taste you can’t get all year round. Higher in anti-oxidants than your other citrus varieties and while still loaded with fiber and vitamin C. A great way to kickstart your day and fend off that cold.

If you can’t find blood oranges, substitute cara cara, ruby red grapefruit or even a navel orange in a pinch. I used Ripple for this recipe and it’s quickly becoming my preferred non-dairy milk. It’s loaded with 50% more calcium than milk, pea protein, DHA Omega-3s, potassium, vitamin D, iron, and the option of zero sugar. If you like your smoothies extra frosty, add a few ice cubes into the mix.Print
