Grapefruit & Blood Orange Smoothie

So it’s still cold here… not so much cold but damp. I can see Spring coming, but I can’t quite touch it and lately it’s been just dreary. And while I enjoy oatmeal for breakfast, it’s oatmeal… know what I’m saying? So how did I fix that?

Simple. Fresh fruit, bright colours and citrus. Problem Solved!

This really simple smoothie will have you out the door with breakfast in no time, or help brighten up a dreary afternoon. It’s simple and can be made in under 5 minutes. Hello easy mornings!

Grapefruit & Blood Orange Smoothie
Recipe Type: Breakfast, Drink
Author: Kaitie
Prep time:
Total time:
Serves: 1
Ingredients
  • 1 blood orange
  • 1/2 a grapefruit
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1/4 cup light coconut milk
  • top with 1/2 tbsp cacao nibs (optional)
Instructions
  1. Cut the orange and grapefruit into bits. Add to the blender along with the chia seeds, banana and coconut milk.
  2. Blend until mixed together. Top with cacao nibs!

When I wake up these days I try and enjoy something a little more “bright in flavour” and this really makes the most of a dreary day. The chia seeds I find help with keeping you ‘full’ a little longer, but you could easily add vanilla protein powder to  make this really count.

  1. I’ve just tried blood orange for the first time in ma life. Yup. I kinda dig it. Slightly bitter but then so is marmalade and I love marmalade. No need to speak of grapefruit. I love that. Yum to this smoothie.

  2. This sounds so refreshing!! I had to leave the northeast because this was the time of year I just couldn’t handle the gray anymore!
