Smoothie of the Day – Vitamin C Blast!

Okay, so this smoothie is actually from a couple of days ago, but the two year old ‘borrowed’ my camera and I have only just located it! The plan was to put together a smoothie which was packed to the brim with vitamin C to help all of you who are fighting off the coughs, colds, ‘flu and fatigue which seem to appear with the change of the seasons. The result was a spectacular drink which can only be described with one word: ZING!

smoothie ingredients

Vitamin C Blast Recipe

one pink grapefruit, peeled and quartered

two oranges, peeled and quartered

two kiwifruit, ends removed and quartered

one punnet of strawberries, leaves and all

one heaped teaspoon of camu camu powder

one heaped teaspoon of rosehips, ground

one heaped teaspoon of hibiscus petals, ground

two tablespoons of goji berries, soaked in 100ml of water

150ml concentrated infusion using 2-3 hibiscus flowers

1 cup of water

Add of the ingredients to the blender, in the order they are listed (including the soaking water of the goji berries, but not the whole hibiscus flowers used to make the concentrated infusion). Whiz it together for a minute or so in the blender and enjoy the brightly coloured smoothie guaranteed to keep you zinging for the rest of the day.

  1. Hi Meg,

    I love that I got to tastethis one yummy yummy however proberly more of a adults taste than Andy’s 🙂 I think that could make an awesome coktail base. Your Vit C smoothie ispired me and I made a Soothie made of : Bannana, Kiwi fruit, Pear, Baby Spinach, Cinnamon and Mixed Spice bended with a 1/2 cup water. A very refreshing start to the day 🙂

  2. Your smoothie sounds delish Kylie! My kids really like the vitamin C blast, I think it is a case of children developing a taste for certain foods and flavours. Baby steps…Andy has come such a long way in terms of eating healthy food – very impressive indeed!
