One of my goals for this new year is to incorporate more fruits and vegetables into my diet and my kiddos as well. I feel like I start off the school year doing so well and then somewhere over the holidays we get off track. So many of our days are go-go-go, so quick and easy ways to add fruit into our day is my goal. My family loves smoothies! I love making them for breakfast, an after school snack, an evening pick-me-up after their game before they need to tackle their homework. There are so many smoothie options you can make with 100% Florida Orange Juice. Here’s one of our favorites.
2 cups of your favorite 100% Florida Orange Juice
1/2 cup ice
1/2 frozen banana
1/2 cup mango
1/2 cup pineapple
protein powder (optional)
Place ingredients in blender. I pulse on the ice crush setting about 10 times, then blend on high for about another 10 seconds.
This recipe makes three 8 oz servings.
Our usual weekday breakfast is a protein (usually turkey bacon), a carb (slice of toast) and a glass of orange juice. I love that an 8 ounce glass of 100% Florida Orange Juice is loaded with vitamin C and is a great source of potassium and folate.
I also love that there’s no added sugar.
Is your family a smoothie lovin’ family too?
