Orange Pom-Berry Smoothie

I don’t tend to post smoothie recipes on Wholefully all that often. I think smoothie “recipes” are kind of a cop out. Smoothies are so fool-proof. Just throw things in a blender and go. It’s one of those items that you do not need a recipe for and you certainly don’t need me telling you what you’d like in a smoothie.

And then I made this smoothie. And it was so good I wanted to shout from the roof tops.

So here we are, sharing a smoothie recipe. It’s stupendously easy, but incredibly flavorful. It’s also jam-packed with antioxidants that help repair cell damage. Healthy cells=lower risk of cancer, heart disease, arthritis and even the common colds. Antioxidants are our friends.

Bonus: it totally looks like the “blood” they drink on The Vampire Diaries. #fangirl*

  1. THE HUSBAND LIKES IT!!! I have been trying for 3 years to get a healthy smoothie down him without all the faces, spitting and throwing of hands a baby makes when tasting a yucky food for the first time! (seriously, he acts worse!) You are a genius…thanks for the great smoothie idea!!!!

  2. I would recommend adding raspberry or orange sherbert along with a protein powder to any smoothie – yummie and healthy

  3. Mmm, I know smoothies are easy and not exactly a science, but I still love seeing smoothie “recipes.” I think of them more a smoothie “ideas.”

  4. Mmm that really does look like an amazing smoothie – I love it when smoothies are really vibrant colours!
    I’ve never even thought of putting clementines in a smoothie before which shows that sometimes, smoothie recipes are justified 🙂

  5. I know what you mean about posting smoothies – but I like seeing them! I make a lot of smoothies so I’m always looking for new ideas 😀 This looks delicious!
