Pump your body full of all the goodness citrus juice has to offer with this smoothie/juice combination that tastes simply amazing!! I like to add a little pinch of cayenne pepper to mine as I like the kick, but that is totally optional, and if you are giving it to kids you will probably want to pass on that (unless they are little weirdos like mine, and go gaga for spicy things).
I have been battling a cold for weeks now (seriously, it’s been ongoing for about 5 weeks which is just ridiculous). It is one of those lingering bugs that I just can’t shake – mainly because I am in the last trimester and my immune system is just not what it should be, plus my 4yo has just started preschool…. The funny thing is, my other two were summer babies and I always complained about being pregnant in the heat of the summer….never again!! Not that I will be having any more little bundles of joy, but if given the choice I am going to be choosing the option where I can just hide in the air conditioning over this version where I pick up every bug winter has to offer.
Well enough is enough. I have been sipping on these citrus juice explosion smoothies for the past couple of days, and I can feel them doing wonders for my body. It’s probably a combination of the ‘all in my head placebo effect‘ and timing etc but it can’t be bad to be pumping your body full of this many awesome ingredients either, right?? Oh and I have one neighbor handing me a bag of grapefruits weekly, another a bag of oranges weekly and we have our own lemon tree…so I have a lot of produce to use up 🙂 Waste not, want not, right! Hope you love this super refreshing smoothie as much as we do! It is definitely a little bit of spring in a glass and will cheer up those winter blues right away.
