Green Smoothie With Orange
Oranges are an excellent ingredient to include in your next green smoothie! Oranges are a citrus fruit, but their taste is much milder than that of other citrus fruits, like grapefruit. Oranges, when used in a green smoothie, also offer your body multiple nutritional benefits. For example, did you know that oranges are an excellent source of Vitamin C, which can dramatically improve the function of your immune system?
Oranges are also an excellent source of Vitamins A1, B1, potassium, folate, calcium, and dietary fiber. In medical studies, the regular consumption of oranges has been shown to lower cholesterol, lower high blood pressure, and to possess anti-inflammatory properties. The Vitamin C that is found in oranges has also been proven to be beneficial in assisting the human body in protecting itself against colon cancer.
