All by themselves, orange smoothies are a healthy and refreshing treat. And, there are a large number of orange smoothie recipes that make great use of other ingredients as well.

In this orange smoothie, avocados bring a lot of taste as well as a lot of Vitamin E-which is so good for anti-aging as a means to promote healthy skin.

Its also easy to turn any of the many orange smoothie recipes into nutrition powerhouses just by adding a tablespoon of Chia seed. Chia is a natural seed that adds a large measure of nutrition including heart healthy, cholesterol fighting omega 3 fatty acids and antioxidants. Even better, unlike Flax, Chia doesn’t have a noticeable taste of its own so adding it here won’t change the delicious results. You can order Chia seed directly from Amazon.com by clicking on the link in the recipe

In your favorite blender mix:

The “meat” of one (1) medium ripe avocado
1 orange peeled and cut in chunks
Juice of one freshly squeezed lemon
1 big handful of parsley
1 cup of cold orange juice (with or without pulp)
1 tbsp. Chia seed
