As you know, oranges are extremely juicy, naturally sweet and an excellent source of vitamins C and A, as well as B vitamins. In addition, they contain calcium, copper, potassium, pantothenic acid, folate, and fiber.
Since these smoothies require just a handful of ingredients, they are ready in a matter of minutes. The combination of oranges, fruit juice/nectar, milk, nutmeg, cinnamon and a touch of sweetener certainly provide a winning combination.
Orange Smoothies are naturally gluten-free and can easily be created dairy-free, providing yet another great health benefit. In my opinion, this beverage option is way better than sipping on sickening sweet, preservative laden soft drinks. It’s a fabulously refreshing drink for children and a delicious way to take in vitamins and minerals.

Here’s a toast to sunshine, happy days, and YOU!
