Vitamin C smoothie: Pink grapefruit & red pepper



A new week, a new smoothie!

After my little workout yesterday (5 km run) I treated myself with a very healthy smoothie. The beauty of this smoothie is that it only consists of fruits and vegetables, no added sugars nor added dairy products. Just simply mixed vitamins in a glass :)

Ingredients:
(5 glasses)

1 orange
1 pink grapefruit
1 red pepper
1 carrot

Peel the orange, the pink grapefruit and the carrot. Clean the red pepper. Cut everything into pieces and put all together in a blender. Blend blend blend. Done!



Look at that colour! Doesn't this smoothie look beautiful?!

For some reason I always expect smoothies to taste sweet. This one didn't had that predominant sweet taste, but it had some bitterness as well. My sister was not a fan of the slight bitter taste (caused by the pink grapefruit) but my dad, my mum and I really liked it!



This smoothie is filled with vitamin C and beta-carotene. A very colourful antioxidant drink it is!

Do you expect smoothies to be sweet or do you like some bitterness as well?


Love,

  5. What a gorgeous color! And it looks super delicious and healthy. Thank you for sharing! Can you believe we're already so far into January? How is the new year treating you? If you're like many of us and have resolved to spend a little less this year, we'd love to tell you about Dorco. We're a shaving company providing quality razors for up to 70% less than leading brands. Chances are you're paying way too much for razors. Plus, by switching to Dorco you can finally afford to change your blades often, which will result in happier, healthier skin (something else I think we all want in 2014!) You don't have to sacrifice quality to save so much, though. Read what others think about our products at DorcoUSA.com, and check out our prices for yourself while you're there. Thanks for hearing us out, and we wish you all the best in 2014!
