Happy Wednesday Everyone!
I hope you all had a wonderful Valentine's weekend with your loved one(s)! Since the Valentine's weekend might be a sugar rush for so many people. Let's flush the sugar out of the system with this "High Vitamin C Smoothie"; bright red grapefruit, fresh squeezed orange juice and frozen mango are complements with aromatics from fresh Rosemary, which gives you a great jumpstart for the morning. Rosemary balances out the acidity well plus I add some sweetness to the party with liquid stevia. This “High Vitamin C Smoothie” is a great start for someone who is fighting a cold.
Let's talk about the Citrus season which is between November to June. There is a variety of citrus fruit selections for you to pick, and my favorite citrus fruits are Tangerines, Ruby Red Grapefruit, and Temple Oranges. I did some more research so I could be able to line up the smoothie plan through this season. And I would like to share this citrus calendar with you, just in case you need it.
Here is the citrus fruit calendar:
Tangerine - out around NOV to APRIL.
Tangelos - out around NOV to DEC.
