Holding an orange ، detox smoothie.

One of the many benefits of s،ing your day off with a smoothie is that you can adapt your go-to recipe with whatever fruits and veggies are in season. In the spring that means strawberry smoothies, in the summer I love using peaches, and in the fall I like to work with pumpkin. Today’s recipe is this Orange Ginger Detox Smoothie, which is full of sweet and tangy flavor.


Orange Ginger Detox Smoothie ingredients
  • Orange: Full of sweetness and vitamin C, it adds just the right amount of tangy sweetness to balance out the other ingredients.
  • Carrots: Sweet and bright, it pairs perfectly with the orange juice.
  • Flax seed meal: Mostly flavorless, it’s full of omega 3 ،ty acids, fiber, and antioxidants.
  • Ginger: Tangy, ،y, and immunity-boosting, a little ، can go a long way!
  • Protein powder: Whether whey based or plant based, I use vanilla flavored protein powder typically in this smoothie.
  • Lemon juice: Bright, fresh flavor that adds some ،ness for the sweetness of the carrots and orange.
