2 whole organic oranges (yep! Skin-on for Vitamin C!)
4-6 figs (for sweetness). You can use fresh, frozen or dried
juice of 1 -or 2 lemons (more Vitamin C!)
2 tablespoons coconut oil (everyone needs some healthy fat)
sprinkle of chia seeds, optional (for fat, antioxidants, protein, and appetite control)
We call this smoothie “The Vitamin C Bomb.” If you’re feeling like you need an inoculation of good health, here it is in a glass!
Pop all your ingredients in your Vitamix, and add about 1 cup of water to start. Blend, using the tamper, to a nice consistency (add more water if you need to.) Taste, and adjust the sweetness (fig), richness (coconut oil) and sour (lemon) to taste.
Because we love to garnish the smoothie, we add chia seeds to the top. Also, it is satisfying to “chew” on a sip…it makes us feel like we’re having a meal. If you like a “smooth smoothie,” then leave them out.
