Creamsicle-like, refreshing orange grapefruit smoothie!
This recipe is packed with fruit, vegan and has healthy gut probiotics!
Yes, citrus and kombucha and when citrus is in season, I stock up.
Adding kombucha not only adds flavor but also some effervescence.
Kombucha is a fermented tea that has been consumed for thousands of years.
Kombucha also contains antioxidants, can kill harmful bacteria and may help fight several diseases.
Not only do oranges, lemons, grapefruits and the like have so many health benefits but they are also very versatile for cooking.
Oranges are a healthy source of fiber, vitamin C, thiamine, folate, and antioxidants. They have multiple health benefits.
For added color and flavor, I also like adding raspberries and pineapple.
For a bit of powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant boost, ground turmeric and black pepper is a great addition to this smoothie.
Many of these benefits come from its main active ingredient, curcumin.
The curcumin in the turmeric can boost brain function, lower risk of heart disease, and may help prevent cancer.
So let’s make some orange grapefruit smoothie!
Grab Your Blender
Add the juice of 1 orange and the juice of 1 grapefruit to your blender along with all of the other ingredients then blend on high until smooth.
If you choose to add the turmeric, I highly recommend adding the black pepper too as the turmeric does not get absorbed efficiently in the body without it.
In order for your body to really take in all of the health benefits turmeric has to offer, black pepper must be added.
