Creamy Citrus Berry Smoothie Recipe Is Full of Healthy Antioxidants by Ann Marie Patitucci
Everyone needs a new smoothie recipe in their lives! This berry smoothie recipe is not only delicious – it’s also a meal-in-a-glass. It’s full of powerful antioxidants and healthy carbohydrates. This citrus berry smoothie is perfect for a snack, a healthy dessert or breakfast.
While you may recognize some standard smoothie ingredients, this citrus berry smoothie recipe’s signature ingredient (besides the berries!) is orange juice. And like many of my favorite recipes, you can make it in just one step!
A healthy, often overlooked, ingredient in this smoothie recipe is wheatgerm. Wheatgerm is the part of the grain that is responsible for the growth of the new plant sprout. It's very small, but mighty. Wheatgerm has many health benefits, and is an excellent source of folate, magnesium, thiamin, phosphorus and zinc. Plus, you won't even know it's in this creamy smoothie recipe!
