This vegan green citrus smoothie is light, refreshing and made with my favorite baby greens and delicious, sweet citrus fruit.
There are so many great reasons to make smoothies and smoothie bowls. They are quick and easy to make and are usually made with fresh or frozen produce. It's really easy to throw a bunch of fruit together into a blender, but some combinations are more delicious than the rest.
Take advantage of frozen ingredients
Fresh produce is always delicious but sometimes it can get a little pricey, especially when you're buying fruits or vegetables that aren't in season. You can usually buy frozen fruit for a relatively cheap price. You can also wait until it goes on sale and stock up on all of your favorites.
Another option is to buy fresh produce while it's in season. You can either use it up right away or freeze it yourself and save it for down the road when it's no longer available. I love doing this for my vegan smoothies! You will usually find my freezer filled with yummy frozen fruit so I can make a smoothie at any given time.
Freezing produce at its prime can also help preserve tons of vitamins and minerals. Freezing citrus specifically can help give you a boost of immunity! Check out this article about immune boosting foods.
