Fresh Orange Juice Smoothie Recipes

Yep, an orange juice smoothie is great, but when it is made with freshly squeezed orange juice, is when it will absolutely blow you away.

If you’re looking for a quick and easy way to boost your immune system, then these are the smoothie recipes for you – Vitamin C PACKED to boot!

Freshly Squeezed Oranges Really Does Pack a lot of Punch!

Helps Protect Against Inflammation – flavanoids help to neutralize oxidative inflammatory properties within the body, and oranges are chuck full of flavanoids. Because of their antioxidant content, oranges help to keep those free radicals at bay, thus helping to prevent inflammation.

Cholesterol – oranges contain alkaloid synephrine, which is found under the peel. This naturally occurring alkaloid can sometimes help slow down the liver’s production of cholesterol.

Immune Support – you’ve heard about vitamin C before. Well, here it is again! Yes, orange-juice is an excellent way to support the immune system, because of its high vitamin C content.

Fresh VS. Not-Fresh

Naturally, we say: go fresh when you can; because, fresh contains the most nutrients! The longer it sits, more nutrients will escape, if truly fresh. And what we mean by “truly fresh” is that the orange juice contains nothing but oranges…no preservatives and no artificial “anything” to the keep it artificially fresh.

If you are looking for the one that has the most nutrients…it will definitely be fresh orange-juice. Not to mention the flavor of "fresh" is twice as good!

Great Smoothie Additives for Orange Smoothies

Coconut Oil - when mixed with a slightly colder substance coconut oil will harden and become thicker. So, if you’re looking for a thick consistency, coconut oil can certainly do the job not to mention the many health benefits that go with it!

Maca Powder - is an excellent food to add to your smoothie. It is extremely nutrient-dense, packed with vitamins, essential minerals, healthy fats and amino acids. This powder is a real energy kicker, so much so that you won’t be reaching for your coffee in the mornings.

Goji Berries – if you want a double whammy in the antioxidant department add goji berries to your already “orange” antioxidant packed smoothie. Great addition!
