Orange Ginger Sunshine Smoothie

Yes this is my second smoothie recipe in a row BUT this is the time of year for smoothies. Also it is the time of year for citrus so obviously I had to make some kind of citrus smoothie! To me and probably many others that live in the north citrus is a saving grace during the middle of winter, a little ray of sunshine if you will. So behold the Orange Ginger Sunshine Smoothie.

Made up of oranges, banana, ginger, turmeric, coconut milk, and a touch of honey for sweetness. All blended together with ice, its almost like a tropical beverage! I like to drink this Orange Ginger Sunshine Smoothie through a fancy umbrella straw as it is snowing outside, I close my eyes and pretend I am somewhere sunny 😉

TIPS & TRICKS:

• I recommend using the small mandarin oranges, aka “halos” the seedless easy to peel oranges that make making this smoothie a ton easier due to them being easy to peel and minimal pith (white stuff)

• Adding turmeric is optional, I like to add it for a little boost of flavor, health, and color but the smoothie is just as good without it

• To make a little healthier use light or low fat unsweetened coconut milk (or other milk of your choice)

• You can replace the ice cubes with a frozen banana for a less watery smoothie
