Blueberry and orange smoothie

Blueberries, orange and banana.  The simple thought of that combination instantly makes you feel better.  Blueberries to bury any blues, a citrus slap in the face and bananarama goodness to smooth it all out.

Occasionally a bottle of juice makes it into our household (ahem, partner) and when it does, I’m still going to enjoy it 🙂  Here’s how I decided to use the orange juice currently residing in our fridge.

Simply blend the following with a hand blender:

1/2 cup orange juice

1/4 to 1/2  punnet blueberries

1/2 medium banana

1/2 cup ice

This makes about 350 ml and provides approximately 480 kJ, 1.7 grams protein, 0.3 grams fat (0 grams sat fat) and 24.8 grams CHO (23.1 grams sugar).

  1. I have orange and blueberry smoothies for breakfast most days – I just add oats. Excellent combination 🙂
