Blueberry Orange Iron Rich Smoothie

We created this smoothie as a quick, refreshing juice blend to fortify our immune systems before plane rides and group activities. Combining the antioxidant benefits of blueberries with a immunity boosting power of vitamin C was just the start.  We then threw in organic spinach greens and fiber for extra potency and simply blended it in our blender.

Psssst –  This is also a sneaky way to get your kids eat – and love – their spinach as a part of their favorite juice.

As you can see below, the ingredients just get combined together in the high torque blender.  Add the lid, blend and you’re done.

Serves: 2 tall glasses
Ingredients
  • 2 Oranges, peeled
  • 1 Cup frozen organic blueberries
  • 1 Cup/handful of fresh organic greens
  • 1 Cup water or juice
  • 1 tsp fiber (optional)
Instructions
  1. Combine ingredients in the blender. Blend for about 1 minute.

 

The taste of spinach is pretty nonexistent; however, if it is noticeable, use more blueberries or substitute juice for water and you won’t taste it (at least we can’t).

You can also add fresh flax seeds to this recipe for a burst of Omega 3s. However, we recommend adding them only if you have a high torque blender that can blend small items
