It started, with me thinking I was starving right now. In the refrigerator was half a drawer of organic oranges that needed used. So I pulled out my Vitamix and decided to try my hand at a smoothie. This is what I came up with and I think it's worth sharing.
2 oranges with peel removed
1 cup ice
1/2 cup water
1 package Stevia in the raw (or 4 drops liquid stevia)
Place ingredients in blender and process on high until smooth.
That is it.
It is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G.
Only 130 calories of healthy goodness if you drank the whole thing by yourself. Or you could share half of it with a friend.
If you don't have a Vitamix - -well it is worth doing some research on them. I use mine almost every day. Any blender will work for this recipe.
To this basic recipe, I've also added protein powder, greek yogurt and other fruit for more of a breakfast smoothie. However, for an afternoon pick-me-up snack you cannot beat this simple, good-for-you, refreshing drink.
