Vitamin C citrus power smoothie

Whew, we survived January. I am still on that vitamin C train though. My fresh ginger chamomile tea is still on the menu, as is this vitamin c citrus power smoothie. It’s an old favorite, but I thought I’d be good to pull it out, dust it off, show it again, because you guys might need it!

Vitamin C citrus power smoothie is an easy quick vegan smoothie, perfect for breakfast or snack.

This is a very light and drinkable smoothie. I use a frozen banana to add some bulk, but it’s mostly made with fresh squeezed citrus juice. I reach for everything that I can get during the season.

I love a combination of grapefruit juice, red oranges and mandarin oranges. The smell alone is absolutely fantastic, but the flavor is even better.

This vitamin C citrus power smoothie combines some of these flavors, but you can always experiment and add more types of citrus or simply use whatever you have on hand.

For milk, choose a plant based variety. Dairy-free milk works better with citrus, especially if you drink this slow and let it sit for a while. Combining citrus with regular dairy will result in curdling, you’d essentially be making your own buttermilk and you don’t want that.
