Smoothies are my daily drink for radiance and better health! I like to pack a ton of organic leafy greens, fruits, superfoods, and essential oils into my smoothie blends so I can feel great! If you love smoothies and superfoods too then you are going to enjoy making this smoothie. It has a delicious blend of juicy organic nectarines, frozen banana, almond milk, baby spinach, spirulina, dates and wild orange essential oil. This fantastic smoothie will keep you energized for hours!
One of my favorite additions in smoothies is superfoods like nutrient-dense spirulina. If you have never tried spirulina you should. This wonderful superfood is a blue green algae that grows in fresh water lakes around the world. Spirulina is 60-70% protein, contains high amounts of chlorophyll and plant based iron too. In addition spirulina has carotenoids, vitamins B1, B2, B6, E, and K, minerals, enzymes, phytonutrients, and fatty acids that all help you maintain vibrant health.
I also like using wild orange essential oil in this smoothie because I like the yummy flavor, fragrant aroma, and extra benefits that it adds to my recipe. I really love the smell of wild oranges! Wild orange essential oil makes me feel happy and energized whenever I smell its beautiful fragrance!
The essential oil I used in this recipe is cold pressed from the orange peel. If you want to find out more about how to use pure essential oils in your life for wellness, feel free to email me with questions or to schedule a free essential oils phone consultation at firstname.lastname@example.org.
