Healthy Super Orange Smoothie Recipe

I love fresh-squeezed orange juice, it’s such a sweet energy booster! I went a little crazy and picked a few too many oranges when preparing for today’s farmer’s market, so I decided to whip up a delicious orange smoothie and share the results with you.

This tasty beverage includes the additional ingredients of turmeric, ginger and coconut oil. All three of these are celebrated for their myriad health benefits, and it’s a good idea to get a little of each into your diet each day. Turmeric, admittedly, has a bit of a bitter taste so you have to exercise a bit of creativity when it comes to working it into recipes that don’t include the word “curry”.

Bitter taste alone isn’t a good enough reason to pass on the exotic spices, however. The health benefits of turmeric are plentiful, not just for its antiseptic, antibacterial, and anti-inflammatory properties. Studies have also shown turmeric plays a significant role in fighting multiple types of cancer cells, including prostate cancer and breast cancer.

Orange Super Smoothie:

  • 6 Oranges, juiced
  • 1 tablespoon Coconut Oil
  • 1 tablespoon liquid sweetener of choice (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon fresh turmeric, grated or juiced
  • ginger (to taste)

After juicing oranges, toss all ingredients into a blender and blend till smooth and frothy. A dash of almond milk, organic vanilla extract, and ice cubes added to the blended will help you whip up a satisfying and healthy variation of an Orange Julius.

Not everyone likes the taste of ginger, or turmeric for that matter, so adjust these ingredients according to your personal preference, but do be sure to include just a little bit for the amazing health benefits they bring to this delicious drink. The best method for getting a potent, daily dose of the health benefits of turmeric is to use it in the form of an essential oil hydrosol.

We have exacting standards in our organic practices here at the Sanctuary of Mana Ke’a Gardens. We always use the highest quality equipment and ingredients, including our ceramic water filters and earth-friendly methods. You won’t find a better essential oil hydrosol anywhere else!
