Made with detach Blood Orange flavor as a base, this fruit smoothie provides you with all the benefits you expect from detach plus a dose of immunity boosting vitamin C and the powerful antioxidant spice, turmeric.
The vitamin C comes from the beautiful blood oranges, which are also a good source of fiber. Vitamin C can help boost immune system function and may help prevent or shorten the duration of the common cold.
The deep, rich red color of blood oranges comes from anthocyanins, a type of antioxidant found in red and purple hued fruits and vegetables.
Eating an antioxidant rich diet may help decrease oxidative stress and inflammation.
Inflammation and oxidative stress are considered the root cause of most diseases, including heart disease and cancer. So, boosting your antioxidant intake from food can help you stay healthy.
Anthocyanins, in particular, may also play a role in promoting a healthy heart and maintaining your weight.
Turmeric is a spice that is rich in antioxidants. The active ingredient in turmeric, called curcumin, is a compound with powerful anti-inflammatory properties. A daily dose of turmeric helps support immune system function and reduces inflammation.
Need a little extra protein in your smoothie? No problem!
Simply add a scoop or two of your favorite powdered plant, collagen or whey protein supplement. Adding protein will make the smoothie more filling as a snack or even a meal replacement on a busy day. Try unflavored, vanilla, or a strawberry protein supplement to complement the fruit flavors.
Fiber and protein help fill you up!
Anthocyanins gives anti-inflammatory and antioxidant benefits!
