Orange Power Smoothie

Get your fibre(14.2g) and micronutrient requirements with this delicious orange power smoothie! This recipe was created when my kids challenged me to make them a smoothie using only orange ingredients!

I was fortunate to have frozen persimmons and mangoes from summer, otherwise I wouldn’t have been able to find much to put in! They devoured it and gave me a huge thumbs up, that made me feel like a winner… I hope you enjoy it just as much as we did.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 carrot
  • 1/2 orange 
  • 1 dried apricot
  • 1/2 mango
  • 1/2 persimmon
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • Small slice of fresh ginger
  • 200ml coconut water
  • 2 Brazil nuts

Method

  1. Roughly chop all the ingredients and add them to a food processor or blender. Blitz until all the ingredients have been processed thoroughly .
  2. Serve in a glass or drink from your blender vessel.

Notes.

We use a small Ninja blender, which works really well for individual serves. 

This recipe is enough to fill two standard sized glasses, so I only make one serve if I’m making this for the kids.

As you prepare your ingredients, place the remaining halves of chopped and prepared ingredients into a container for another serve ready to go.

You can substitute the Brazil nut for any other type of nut or some seeds. It’s good to have a fat component with all the fruit to slow down the absorption of sugar.
