Instead of smoothie Monday, I am making it smoothie Tuesday, after all, any day can be a yummy smoothie day! I have been on such a smoothie kick it lately, it isn’t funny! I love having it for breakfast everyday; they fill me up until my 10am Starbucks run! So today I have for you The B-O-B Smoothie.
Your probably thinking, what a weird name for a smoothie. Can you guess what B-O-B stands for? It’s Blood Orange and Banana. I thought I would have a little fun with my smoothie name today. This smoothie tastes amazing! It’s so refreshing and perfect for a morning wake up. It has the most wonderful orange flavor with a blast of banana flavor. To keep it vegan, I used unsweetened, vanilla almond milk. Dam that stuff is good in a smoothie. I used to not like almond milk, but I fell in love the vanilla flavored one. I am so glad and you can’t beat 30 calories for a cup!
I made this smoothie on Sunday morning and I shared it with my Husband and he said he loved it. It is really the perfect wake me up smoothie, plus it makes you smile. I love food that makes me happy, especially healthy food! This smoothie gives you a nice nutritional boost too! It’s has 77% vitamin C and has 542 grams of potassium, which is great for your muscles. My Husband always complains if his legs hurts, so I try to help wherever I can and he kind of has a thing for banana’s. Well I think he does? I but them every week and he eats them all. It’s hard for me to make smoothies with bananas because they disappear so fast.

- 1 cup blood orange juice (3 blood oranges)

This smoothie would be great to make in a big batch and serve to your family for a brunch or Sunday morning. It’s light and not heavy, so it fills you, but not stuff you. I am just loving blood oranges right now and I am so glad I finally got some. I have kept my eye out for them in the stores this year and so far I haven’t seen them. I got these from my CSA box. I am hoping that I will get more this week. Crossing fingers!!
Well my Friends, I am off to write another post. I try to do them in advance so I have time to make other yummy treats.
Have a super wonderful day!
