Orangerie Benefits!

If you've been to the market lately, you've seen plenty of sweet oranges, grapefruits, tangerines and blood oranges…citrus galore!  Change it up and trade out the standard orange with a red flesh of blood orange!   This swap is especially satisfying when we learn of the beauty benefits that come along with this Mediterranean variant.

Superfruit power of vitamin C  stimulates collagen production and anthocyanins, the potent antioxidants found in berries. Both prevent free radicals that cause premature aging and ward off disease-causing inflammation. Paired with cucumber and greens, this smoothie is bursting with nutrients.

Blood Orange Smoothie Directions: Fill blender with…

  • 10 oz coconut water

      smoothie

  • 1 blood orange peeled and seeds removed

  • ½ cucumber peeled

  • ½ frozen banana

  • 2 tsp chia seeds

  • handful spinach

  • juice from ¼ lemon

 

 

Blend ingredients until smooth and enjoy your organic Blood Orange Smoothie.

 Cheers!
