Blood Orange and Berry Smoothie (Nut Free)

blood orange and berry smoothie

I created this smoothie one afternoon when I fancied a tasty drink but wasn't craving the creaminess of the smoothies I usually make, which tend to have a nut milk base. That said, this is actually very similar to a fruity smoothie I used to make years ago, when I was first diagnosed as coeliac. I used to add stomach soothing aloe vera juice to the mix- so please do feel free to give that a try! This sweet and zesty smoothie is wonderfully refreshing, naturally nut free and you only have to look at the vibrant red colour to know that it's packed full of free radical fighting antioxidants!

Three great health benefits: good source of antioxidants, boosts immunity, beneficial for brain health 

Serves 1
Enjoy immediately

3 blood oranges (mine yielded approx 250ml juice)
1/2 cup frozen mixed berries (I used a combination of blackberries, raspberries, blackcurrants and redcurrants)

1) Peel the oranges and pass through a juicer.
2) Place the orange juice and frozen berries in a blender and blend together until smooth.
