Citrus Berry Smoothie

21 Reviews
From: EatingWell Magazine July/August 2008

This meal-in-a-glass smoothie is bursting with berries and orange juice, healthful sources of carbohydrate and powerful antioxidants. Getting plenty of antioxidant-rich foods makes sense for active people, since free radicals are produced any time the body's cells process oxygen.

Good But I would use the berries, oj, yogurt, cinammon, and or ginger, loss the honey, berries and oj have enough sugar and vanilla and powdered milk. I switch the oj up for 1/2 banana, every other day and found it Great with baby spinach and if your not into wheat germs, etc, add a 1/3 cup of bran buds. Really good. Pros: Lots of Protien Cons: No Greens

Made as is but 2 full tablespoons of vanilla protein also, a banana for potassium, substituted dry milk for unsweetened almond milk, and a 2 full tablespoons of flaxseed for a boost. Pros: Easy recipe and extremely tasty. Cons: Could be healthier

Way too many carbs As much as I love the color of this smoothie and the fruitiness of it, but with 70 gram net carbs I will not put that in the category healthy. I won't be making it. That's for sure! Sorry! Pros: Fruity Cons: Too high in carbs

I use blueberries and strawberries. My two year old will even drink this. I usually do it for lunch as I don't always have time to cook and I avoid fast food like a plague. Pros: Tastes great. Cons: It's a bit higher calorie for my diet.

432 Calories? I almost didn't make this because of the calorie count, but then I added up the calories on my own and came up with 315 (didn't add the dry milk though). It was delicious! Next time I won't use so many fresh raspberries to avoid so many seeds, but strawberries with blueberries would be wonderful.

MMMM, good I like this idea, but I like to add a dash of protein powder, that is vanilla flavor so I leave out the vanilla, and add cimmamon to aid witht the processing of all the sugar. Honey is a magic substance, but it is sugar.
