Hey LtL readers! Ok, quick question for y’all…have you ever tried a blood orange?? If I’m being honest, the name was always a deterrent for me but they were 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 recipe that you can easily customize to your very own blood orange smoothie liking!
BLOOD ORANGE BANANA SMOOTHIE
*Quick disclaimer: you can customize this recipe quite easily to your tastebud’s likings, here are the ingredients I used for mine.
Yield: 2 large smoothies or 4 little smoothies for your littles 🙂
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. 🙂
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,
