This healthy and delicious Blood Orange Blueberry Breakfast Smoothie will start your day off on the right foot! With plenty of vitamin C, powerful antioxidants, fiber, and added protein it will keep you feeling full and energized all morning long.
Is it any coincidence that citrus season (January – April) runs in conjunction with cold and flu season? I think not.
Do you get enough vitamin C in your diet? If I’m being honest, I probably don’t. However, this year I am trying to be more mindful about my daily fruit intake, and I’m trying to make sure I get at least two helpings of fruit in a day. I’ve found that blending up a morning smoothie is a really good way to do just that. This Blood Orange Blueberry Breakfast Smoothie is one of my very favorites.
This winter season has been a difficult one because many people have been suffering from bad colds and there’s been a nasty flu bug that seems to want to hang on forever (or so I’m told).
I, however, have been one of the fortunate ones and only mildly suffered from a tiny cold that lasted only three days, and the flu hasn’t darkened our doorstep at all this winter *knock wood* even though a lot of people at my husband’s work have been out sick. Together, we’ve remained healthy.
Is it because we start off our days with drinks like this blood orange blueberry breakfast smoothie? Well, it sure doesn’t hurt, that’s for sure!
