What makes this an immune-boosting smoothie?

Oranges and strawberries are not only delicious, but they also pack a powerful punch when it comes to boosting your immune system. Both oranges and strawberries contain high amounts of Vitamin C, which is a nutrient that plays an important role in supporting the immune system.

In addition, oranges also contain antioxidants, which help to protect cells from damage. When combined, these two fruits make an ideal smoothie for anyone looking to give their immune system a boost. So next time you’re looking for a healthy and delicious way to improve your health, reach for an immune boosting orange and strawberry smoothie. Your body will thank you for it!

Ingredients in this strawberry orange smoothie recipe

  • ½ cup (120g) Greek yogurt
  • ¼ cup (60ml) coconut milk
  • ¼ cup (60ml) orange juice
  • 1 cup (145g) strawberries, frozen
  • 1 orange, peeled
  • 1 tbsp. honey

Optional smoothie additions

  • Chia seeds: a tablespoon of chia seeds can be added to your smoothie for extra nutrients and good fats.
  • Hemp seeds: You may add hemp seeds to your pantry if you have any on hand for a nutritional boost of healthy fats, omegas, and minerals.
  • Oats: To get a more hearty drink, add 1/3 cup oats to your smoothie.

Recipe Substitutions

You can use different types of yogurt in place of Greek yogurt but remember it might not be as creamy as the Greek yogurt is one of the thicker ones.

If you don’t like coconut milk, you can use any other type of milk including dairy milk. But you do need to have some liquid in there otherwise the ingredients won’t blend as well.

Honey works to sweetened the drink perfectly but you can try other types of sweetener that you like if you aren’t a fan of the taste.

How to Make the Smoothie

Place all the ingredients into a high-speed blender and blend until smooth.

Serve straight away.

Tips for making this orange strawberry smoothie

When preparing smoothies, I like to use a combination of frozen fruit and fresh fruits since my blender won’t have any trouble blending. If you don’t have frozen strawberries you might want to add ice cubes to cool it down and to get the right consistency.

If you have a small or personal blender, you may need to add more milk if it doesn’t blend frozen fruit well. Blenders with higher horsepower tend to work best on frozen fruit.

Start the blender on low speed and gradually increase to high to help blend all ingredients. The blender should be set to low speed at the end.

Making ahead and storing

The orange should be peeled while you’re creating the smoothie, as it will spoil if left exposed.

It’s best to consume freshly prepared smoothies immediately, but if you end up with too many, store the leftovers in the fridge for a day or two or freeze them for a few weeks.

Simply thaw by removing the frozen smoothie from the freezer, and enjoy.
