Summer Fresh Fruit Smoothie

Are you ready to feel powerful on nice summer days? This smoothie is the perfect blend for a nice hot summer day, afternoon, or evening. I feel powerful when I replace one of my meals with a smoothie just because it’s full of nutrients, delicious, and it makes me feel energized.

The yellow and orange colors in fruits and vegetables are super rich in:

  • beta-carotene
  • zeaxanthin
  • flavonoids
  • lycopene
  • potassium
  • vitamin C  

These nutrients reduce age-related macula degeneration and the risk of prostate cancer, lower LDL cholesterol and blood pressure, promote collagen formation and healthy joints, fight harmful free radicals, encourage alkaline balance, and work with magnesium and calcium to build healthy bones.

There are so many yellow and orange colored fruits out there, but I only used 3 of these fruits in this recipe.

You will need:

  • juice from 3 fresh squeezed oranges (fresh squeezed taste a lot better)
  • 2 big chunks/slices of pineapple
  • 4 slices of mango
  • I also added a bit of coconut water just because coconut water is so refreshing, and full of nutrients too (You can add more OJ, or water if you don’t like coconut water)
  • 2 chunks of ice to make it cool

Blend it all together in your high speed blender, and there you have it.

This amount can serve 2 people easily. But if you are looking to replace a meal, this is the perfect amount. It’s so delicious, so refreshing, so sweet, and you can make it in the comfort of your own home. Cannot wait for summer to come. This smoothie has got me getting summer sick!

Until next time!?☀️
