Start your day off right with this Immunity Boosting Orange Carrot Coconut Smoothie. Naturally sweet, refreshing, and full of antioxidants!
There are 3 reasons you might be needing this IMMUNITY booster of a smoothie today. Okay maybe four, but let’s just focus on the top 3, because I like odd numbers. 😉
One –> You’ve been traveling all weekend and need and are in dyer need extra antioxidants to fight those free radicals.
Two –> You raced this weekend and you need extra anti-inflammatory nutrients to boost muscle recovery.
Okay fine, FOUR –> if you are like me, you rotate your smoothies (due to high oxalates) and you just get tired of drinking the same old green smoothie. Yes, we need more COLOR! Bright VIBRANT ORANGE COLOR!
Which is why I swapped out the spinach for the carrot juice. Yes, I’m on an orange kick this week, and for good reason.
More bang for your buck with the juice here –> an excellent source of pro-vitamin A, vitamins C, D, E, K, B1 and B6. Not to mention trace minerals like biotin, potassium, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, and sodium.
Throw in some more Vitamin C with oranges and probiotics with Coconut kefir or yogurt and you’ve got yourself one SUPER DUPER IMMUNITY BOOSTER. Yes, I rhymed. It’s needed on Monday.

But in all seriousness, this smoothie is legit. Naturally sweetened with the carrot juice and orange. Creamy, so it almost tastes like an orange dreamsicle… almost. And just darn right pretty. Can you see all that colorful nutrient dense goodness? Oh my! Feeling better already!
I’m a sucker for pretty drinks. Oh and did I mention that the oranges came from my parents tree? That has to count for extra nourishment and love, am I right?
So there you have it. Our new smoothie obsession. For now at least. Let’s hope it keeps us in tip top shape as we tackle the week. It has too because my father in law comes in town Thursday from New Zealand. We’ve got a weekend of shenanigans and probably some Mexican food consumption to attend too.
What’s your favorite non green smoothie?
Happy Meatless Monday!
