Let's start the new year with a healthy Orange & Blueberry ImmunoBoost Smoothie packed with vitamins! :)
Did you know oranges are a great source of Vitamin C? Oranges provide as much vitamin C as lemons, plus they are delicious and currently in season 🙂
We like to get our oranges (and lemons) from an unconventional source – a small truck stopped at the side of the road that brings fresh & seasonal Sicilian produce. I tell you, that produce is one of the best, like ever. Oranges, clementines, and lemons with fresh tree leaves still attached. Thick juicy skin packed full with aromatic oil that sticks to your fingers when you peel the fruit… The only downside is that this truck is not local to where we live, but I only get to buy there when I visit my family.
As we have been battling with a severe cold the past days, this Orange & Blueberry ImmunoBoost Smoothie is just what we need to put as back onto our feet.
