Sweet and Sour Smoothie
Oranges are used in any number of fruit smoothie and even veggie smoothie recipes and for good reason. No cholesterol,fat, or sodium but a whole bunch of vitamins including A, D, B-12, and of course C.
Lemons aren’t quite as popular in smoothies, probably because their sharp taste doesn’t blend well with as many other ingredients. But lemons are another fruit that bring a lot of “healthy” to any recipe. Limited fat (.02 g), few calories (17) no sodium, and, like Oranges, quite a load of vitamins including C and Iron.
Putting a sweet and succulent Orange in the same smoothie recipe with a Lemon and no other sweetener (such as honey) and you have created a sweet and sour smoothie!
And, even better, it couldn’t be more simple to make.
In your favorite blender mix:
2 Oranges, peeled and sliced
1 Lemon, peeled and sliced
1 frozen banana, peeled and sliced (TIP: Peel and slice BEFORE FREEZING!)
1/2 cup filtered water (most tap water has minerals that will alter the results)
Ice to taste (I used a cup of cubes, but that’s just me. You might want more or less)
Everything into the blender at the same time and churn until smooth.
