Creamy orange C smoothie recipe

Lifestyle — Posted 27/05/15

Recharge with this powerful, citrusy smoothie, alive with antioxidant goodness.

This bizarre-sounding combo of vitamin C champions (orange, strawberries, sweet potato, and red bell pepper) creates a delicious immunity blend that’s also a great way to get kids to drink their vegetables. For added anti-inflammatory power, throw in the goji berries, ground flaxseeds, and turmeric. 

Serves:

Ingredients

1 cup (240 ml) freshly squeezed orange juice 

1 orange, peeled, seeded, and quartered 

1⁄2 cup (70 g) mashed cooked orange sweet potato 

1⁄2 cup (60 g) frozen raw cauliflower florets 

1⁄4 cup (35 g) diced red bell pepper 

1⁄4 cup (30 g) blanched raw almonds, soaked (see page 6) 

1 1⁄2 teaspoons finely grated orange zest, plus more to taste 

1⁄2 teaspoon natural vanilla extract 

1 1⁄2 teaspoons pure maple syrup, plus more to taste 

1 cup (160 g) frozen strawberries 

2 cups (250 g) ice cubes 

Boosters

1 tablespoon goji powder 

1 teaspoon ground flaxseeds 

Pinch of ground turmeric 

Method

1. Throw all of the ingredients into your blender and blast on high for 30 to 60 seconds, until smooth and creamy.
