Orange Smoothie

This orange smoothie is also known as Orange Jewels.

Refreshing Orange Smoothie | SimpleGreenSmoothies.com #vegan #plantbased #greensmoothie

This citrus gem is refreshing and filling all at once—making it a great meal replacement. Feel free to add a scoop of plant based protein powder to boost it all the way.

Health Benefits of This Orange Smoothie

This smoothie has got a lot of nutrients in it including iron and vitamin A from the spinach, electrolytes from the coconut water, vitamin C and fiber from the lemon and orange, potassium and even more fiber from the banana.

To Peel or Not To Peel…Citrus

Peeling citrus fruit is the most common way of consuming them. Both the rind and pith (the white part between the fruit and the rind) are super bitter so it can be tempting to eliminate them ASAP. But hold up!

The rind of citrus fruits contain powerful antioxidant, bioflavonoids, vitamin C, calcium, potassium, and a phytochemical called “limonene” which is being studied in cancer prevention and indigestion.

Orange peels specifically contain calcium, copper, magnesium, vitamin A, folate and other B vitamins and dietary fiber.

As a general rule, if you decide to eat the peel of your fruits and vegetables, give them a good wash and scrub to remove dirt or other things. Choose organic whenever possible.

For my smoothies, I like to leave a little of the pith on the fruit and grate in some of the zest for maximum benefits.

    One of my favourites! I didn’t have a whole lemon handy, so I used 2T of organic lemon juice instead. Added spirulina and hemp hearts for my daily add-ons and omitted the coconut water.

  18. SGS Rawkstar Carissa

    January 30th, 2019 at 2:20 pm
