LATELY I HAVE been really into everything and anything citrus. Since having Atticus a week and a half ago all I want is hot lemon water in the morning (followed by coffee, obviously) and we have been trying to eat fruit in the evening to avoid eating the 5 C's we crave when were tired (cookies, cake, chips, chocolate, candy...). Lately we've been eating more and more navel oranges, partially because they are delicious and partially because Finny has a cold and we're trying to boost his vitamin C intake with lots of fruit! We have also been giving him lots of frozen berries as his "dessert" to help boost his immune system and to ease the teething he has just started again. Did you know there is more vitamin C in one strawberry than there is in an entire orange? And good news, this smoothie has both so you will be chalk full of vitamin C by the end of this smoothie!
I made this smoothie earlier this week and it was a huge hit with both Sam, myself and Finny. I hope you enjoy it as well!
2 lemons, juiced
2 oranges, juiced
2 green apples
1 cup frozen strawberries
1 frozen banana
4 cubes ice
In a high speed blender, blend together the lemon juice, orange juice and apples.
Add the rest of the ingredients and blend again.
