Strawberry Orange Smoothie

Standard

I bought some juicy Texas oranges at the farmer’s market yesterday and just knew I would need to throw one in my smoothie this morning. Poor little orange had no idea it was going to be pulverized in the Vitamix….. so tasty.

Strawberry Orange Smoothie

  • 1 orange, peeled and seeded
  • 1/2 frozen banana
  • 1/2 C frozen strawberries (if using fresh, throw in some ice)
  • 1 C water
  • 1 Scoop Juice Plus French Vanilla Complete
  • 1/4 tsp pure orange extract (optional)
  • 1 tsp grated ginger (optional… it will add a touch of heat but it’s great for inflammation)

Add all to a high powered blender and blend till smooth.

To make it a green smoothie throw in a couple handfuls organic baby spinach…. so good for you.
