Hey there! January’s in full swing, and we know what that means for anyone fine-tuning their health this month (and this year) — it’s officially Green Smoothie Season!
To get us started, here’s my latest video from KPTV’s More Good Day Oregon show…
Move over blueberries, there’s a new fruit in season
If you’re like me, your go-to smoothie involves blueberries — and maybe some banana — as the fruit base. After all, blueberries are easy to find in any grocery store’s frozen foods section.
However, there are so many other smoothie-friendly fruits out there — even in the wintertime.
The winter months are prime time for citrus fruits of all kinds — oranges, tangerines, Meyer lemons, limes, kumquats, and, of course, grapefruit. So why not get them involved in your day-to-day smoothie blends?
I love adding citrus to my winter smoothies. It’s a great way to add some extra vitamin C to your day, which is especially helpful during cold and flu season.
