Citrus Berry Smoothie

July/August 2008

Your rating: None Average: 4.4 (353 votes)

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.

Lots of Protien

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.

Easy recipe and extremely tasty.

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!

Fruity

FYI this is healthy carbs not

FYI this is healthy carbs not unhealthy carbs. Speak to your Dr. or get in contact with a nutritionist who can break everything down to you. It can be confusing and overwhelming.

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.

Tastes great.
