Today I really appreciated the lovely and sunny weather that we have been experiencing here in the UK. I felt inspired to whip up a smoothie that had a nice citrus twist to it and tasted refreshing for spring days and summer which is around the corner to blow those proverbial cobwebs away. It's packed full of nutrients,vitamins and antioxidants and all natural goodness.Hopefully everyone is enjoying the lighter days as much as I am and keeping nourished and hydrated.
2 Blood oranges

Chop all the fruit and vegetables into small pieces and add to the food processor / blender
