As I’ve mentioned many times in other posts I have a tendency to be a little bit of a workaholic. Ok, ok. Who am I kidding?

A lot bit!

In other words, I probably don’t get all the vitamins I need or even all the sleep that my body requires. I know, I know. I need to work on this.

Energizing Citrus Smoothie

TRUST ME. I’m slowly making improvements every day.

It’s just an extremelyyyyyy slow process!

Anyways, recently Mike (aka. Super Talented Hubby) and I “found” this little miracle called Emergen-C Super Orange. Since our daughter is still in daycare sickness comes and goes quite frequently in our household. (P.S. Miss Ava’s immunity is getting better, but if you have kids I’m sure you’ll agree that sometimes it just happens!)

So, Mike and I just don’t have time to be sick because 1.) we have too many things to do AND 2.) neither of us can sit still very well as it is. Not to mention, we both hate going to the doctor and taking random pills for a simple cold.

That is when, my friends, we discovered the amazing power of this little packet when it comes to staying healthy even when everyone else is sick.

Ingredients You’ll Need:

  • 1 banana
  • 1 mandarin
  • ½ cup Greek vanilla yogurt
  • ½ cup almond milk
  • 1 packet of Emergen-C Super Orange
  • 1/2 cup of ice

1.) Pace yourselves. This is going to be really, reallyyyy easy. 😉

2.) Dissolve your packet of Emergen-C Super Orange in a little bit of water. Approximately 1/2 cup will work just fine.

3.) Add all of your ingredients together and blend. I like to use my Magic Bullet, but you can easily use any blending machine.

4.) ENJOY!

Isn’t that ridiculously easy?! It’s also an amazing way to get lots of vitamins and naturally energize your day.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend 🙂

  1. This looks delicious! With my work schedule I need a pick me up. I have seen the little packets but have never tried them. I don’t believe that I’ve ever had an orange smoothie either. Thanks for sharing! I will have to get the stuff to make one. Pinning!

    1. It’s kind of funny because I would have never thought to do this if I was just walking the aisles of my local grocery store. However, all of these items just so happened to be on the counter at the same time, and voila! a wonderful pick-me-up was developed. Hope you enjoy!

    1. That sounds amazing, Ashleigh! What a great way to add a little bit of flavor and protein. I’ll definitely write down that idea too 🙂

  2. Oh does this ever sound refreshing! I love smoothies. We make them almost every day but truth be told… I often get into a smoothie rut!

    I definitely have to give this a try!

    Thanks for sharing (and for linking up to the #SHINEbloghop).

    Wishing you a lovely weekend.

    1. Hi Jennifer! Thank you so much for stopping by 🙂 I just hopped over to your blog, and it looks like I’m going to be spending a lot of time reading all of your blogging management posts. Sooooo good!

  3. I’m pinning this! I love a great smoothie and this sounds so delicious and if it helps to keep me from getting sick that is a definite bonus 🙂 Thanks for sharing.

    1. Yummy, energizing, and definitely helps with keeping the yuckies away! Definitely a major plus 🙂

    1. Hi Kiara, and great question! Personally, a favorite substitute that I like to use is unsweetened applesauce. However, you could easily use mangos or pears if you’d like to stick to fresh fruit. Thanks for stopping by 🙂
