RED IS THE NEW ORANGE! 28 Feb 2013
I love Blood Oranges. They're petite, sweet and high in Vitamin C. Unlike other citrus fruits, blood oranges contain anthocyanins, which is the same red flavonoid pigments that give blueberries their intense color and amazing antioxidant properties. This smoothie is so fresh and it tastes like spring to me. If you use 1/2 of a Lithe Foods cold pressed mojito, you'll also get the benefits (and the flavor) of coconut water, green tea, pineapple, mint, lime and ginger. Enjoy!
