Packed with Vitamin C, this Sunshine Orange Smoothie will help keep those winter bugs at bay!
Are these freezing temperatures getting you down? Are you dreaming of sunny days and sandy beaches? Yeah me too! Unfortunately jetting off to sunnier climates just isn’t an option right now so instead I’m getting my summery fix with this Sunshine Orange Smoothie.
Despite it’s name, my Orange Smoothie is actually made with clementines (or mandarines or tangerines). At this time of year they are super sweet (perfect for those fussy eaters and fruit haters!) and not to mention a lot easier to peel than an orange.
During the summer I tend to use frozen bananas in my smoothies but in the winter I can’t bare to drink super cold smoothies so I make them with fresh bananas instead and don’t use any ice. Of course if you prefer your smoothies to be more on the chilly side then feel free to use frozen bananas and a few ice cubes.
With clementines being an excellent source of Vitamin C, this smoothie makes the perfect addition to your breakfast or a delicious after school snack for the kids, helping to keep all those nasty winter bugs at bay!
