Fun Fruit Fact: Tangerines are really a variety of the Mandarin orange. They are smaller, not as sour and are easier to deal with in terms of peeling and preparing.  Tangerines are full of vitamin-C and beta-carotene. In this recipe they are an added treat in a not so traditional fruit juice smoothie recipe

Add even more healthy nutrition by including a tablespoon of Chia seed to the mix. Chia seed is a nutritional powerhouse and loaded with heart healthy, cholesterol fighting omega-3 fatty acids. Chia is a better addition than Flax because it has no taste of its own and won’t change the berry and tangerine goodness at all.

In your favorite blender mix:

– Cup of cold OceanSpray® Cranberry Tangerine Juice
– 1/2 cup of frozen raspberries
– 1/4 cup of frozen strawberries
– 1 Tbs.Chia seed (optional)

Mix completely and top with a fresh section of tangerine, orange or big fat strawberry

According to Wikipedia, a “berry” is a “fleshy fruit produced from a single ovary… The berry is the common type of fleshy fruit…”. And they are the focus of this berry smoothie recipe.

As we have it here, this recipe makes use of a little bit of three different berries, The beauty of smoothie recipes is you can fiddle with them without ruining anything. So, if you are partial to blueberries over strawberries feel free to make that change. Or, if you want, add grapes to the mix as well. It’s really up to you!

In your favorite blender mix:

  • 1/4 cup blueberries
  • quarter cup strawberries
  • quarter cup raspberries
  • 1 cup cold Orange juice (Fresh is best, otherwise watch the sugar)
  • Tbs. honey
  • 1 Tbs. Chia seed

Next mix in the blender until it is your favorite consistency!  If you use frozen fruits you won’t need to add ice, but if you are using fresh fruits you might need to add some ice to blend your smoothie to a smoother texture.

What with all the healthy breakfast smoothie recipe choices we have here you would think that we have a breakfast smoothie every morning. But that is just not the case.

I get up much, much earlier than my partner and, if I serenaded her each morning with a blender mixing up smoothies, I wouldn’t have lasted as long as I have. So, a lot of mornings I have very quiet cereal with fruit. It doesn’t taste a good but it does allow for more sleep.

All this leads me to a new-ish healthy breakfast smoothie recipe I have tried and it is pretty darn good.

Should you and your partner rise together, or if your partner sleeps more soundly than mine, I think this is one you will very much enjoy.

In your favorite blender mix:

  • One Cup Raspberries (fresh or frozen)
  • 1/2 Mango, sliced
  • 3 sliced peaches
  • 1 cup vanilla Greek Yogurt
  • Ice to Taste

  • 1 cup lime sherbet (either low-fat or “light”)
