Blood Orange Banana Smoothie Recipe

Have you ever tried a blood orange?? If I’m being honest, the name was always a deterrent for me but they are so pretty to photograph! So, the other day after I shot this flatlay I decided to put them to good use in a smoothie. Waste not, want not #amiright! Today’s blog post is an ode to the blood orange. I whipped up a blood orange banana smoothie recipe that you can easily customize to your very own blood orange smoothie liking!

*Quick disclaimer: you can customize this recipe quite easily to your tastebud’s likings, here are the ingredients I used for mine.ย 

Yield: 2 large smoothies or 4 little smoothies for your littles ๐Ÿ™‚

1 prepackaged bag blood oranges, juiced (about 6)

2 frozen bananas

2 cups almond milk

1 handful spinach (ya know, for the fiber)

*Optional: 1 cup frozen pineapple for a hint of citrus

*Note: If you don’t have any frozen fruit just add ~2 cups ice

Who knew blood oranges were so delicious?! They’re actually quite sweet, in a subtle way. They don’t pack that punch of citrus like regular oranges do and I really enjoyed the change! I would definitely make this recipe again, plus it’s toddler approved. ๐Ÿ™‚

Have you ever had a blood orange before? I’d love to hear how you’ve used them in the comments below! Thanks for reading and happy Wednesday friends!

Lemons to Love,
