Orange and blueberry smoothie

I've been on a massive smoothie kick lately. They're a great way to get extra fruits and veggies into you, and they can actually be suprisingly satisfying! I've been making a big effort to eat more vegetables over this winter, and it's paid off to the extent that I've only had one cough/cold this year! Last year, I was ill pretty much all of the winter! In fact, I'm just getting over said cold right now and I think it's because the week before last I didn't get a chance to go to the market and didn't eat hardly any fresh fruit and vegetables. Coincidence? I think not! Here's what I was drinking this morning:

Orange and Blueberry Smoothie

  • 2 medium oranges
  • Half punnet blueberries
  • Half cup apple juice
  • Half cup water

    Throw everything into the blender, and off you go! Looks weird, but tastes delicious! The smoothie I made was based off this one by Kristen Suzanne.

    What's your favourite smoothie recipe?

    Something to read:

    While googling what are the most nutritious greens to add to my smoothies, I found this list of the top 10 most nutritious greens, and was suprised that dandelion is the most nutritious! I have loads of this growing in my garden as a weed, but at least now I know what to do with it - rip it up and throw it into my smoothies! winking smiley

    I've never thrown oranges into a smoothie - for some reason I've always gone the berry route - but I bet the splash of citrus would be to die for!

    I've noticed dandelion leaves in the salad mixes I've gotten from the farmer's market. Good to know they're so nutritious! Also, thanks for sharing the smoothie recipe- I just bought frozen blueberries last night and will be trying your smoothie for a mid-morning snack!
