Dialing in some sweetness in terms of the flavour flaves smoothie of the smoothpoops we arrive at the liquid good feels of orange juice.
Orange juice in a smoothie offers some great nutritional value as well as some serious good tastes to make that smoothie even more of a delight to drink.
Orange Juice is the Good Juice and Here’s Why:
THE NUTRITIONAL GOOD FEELS
Vitamin C is the name of the game and it is one of nature’s gifts to us to thrive as it lends itself to the enhancement, support and function of our connective tissues and blood vessel walls.
Vitamin C is a vitamin that is water-soluble. so its application in our systems enhances and supports our immune functions through its powerful anti oxidizing properties.
Folate is found up in the OJ scene and this entity is a good vibe for your little ones development as it is a necessity for the formation of red blood cells.
The minerals’ iron and potassium are both found in abundance in the orange. These minerals’ are essential to nerve and muscle function as well as maintaining governance of equilibrium in the body’s and blood pressure and fluid levels.
Oranges are a Citrus Fruit
The citrus species in the family of Rutaceae is from where the orange derives. Also, dubbed the sweet orange so as to delineate its difference to that of the bitter orange.
The fruit that we call the orange is actually a combo of the mandarin and the pomelo fruits.
No wonder they taste so amazingly delicious and a happy compliment to our smoothpoops smoothie.
I like to immerse my little dudes smoothies in equal parts fresh orange juice and fresh mango juices.
You need not a huge quantity of juice in order to saturate the ingredients and then thinning it out with equal portion water is a good way to dilute the overall smoothie for balancing the natural sugar content inherently found in juices of this kind.
Too much consumption of sugary juices will prove to be a problem if your child is not super active or maintaining a balanced diet of nutritious food and exercise consistently. Glucose is what fuels the brain and an imbalanced or refined application of this energy source can prove to work against your efforts.
Water is the best liquid to offer and encourage and demonstrate to your child that they should consume for their well-being.
Water is intrinsic to the flourishing of the planet but also to the human species.
Sometimes we get so caught up in the every day activities of life that we fail to take a step back and see if we are indeed consuming enough of this life giving, life optimizing liquid in our systems.
If you have a headache, your body probably just needs water. The body is a beautiful system that works to enhance and optimize your life experience.
Optimal health is simple. Keep it so.
When you raise your kids on natural and high vibrational foods and juices, then your child will be cultivating an empowering practice that will serve them for the entirety of their existence from birth to death. I
The quantity of orange juice that you dial in will be about half the saturation of the smoothies contents. We use a bullet blender, I put the ingredients in, and then I fill up the container one part orange juice, one part mango juice and top with water.
Again, with balance and moderation in the forefront of our fundamental approach here, use your discerning judgement wisely.
Blend that baby up and enjoy!
It is flavourful, vibrant, healthy and optimizes your little ones gastrointestinal health for some serious smoothpoops!
