Orange Juice Smoothie

Here I was talking about keeping healthy and preventing all the sicknesses that are around this time of year and my son gets sick this week! Boo! It is not fun taking care of a sick child, but fortunately he is on the mend. :)

For the rest of us, we are trying to boost our immune system and load up on Vitamin C and other important vitamins so that we do not get sick as well. Along with Vitamins, we have been trying to drink a lot of fluids like OJ, wash our hands, and take it easy. Not always easy to do when you have three little ones and a full schedule, but we’re trying.

To jazz things up a bit, I made a shake using all sorts of yummy goodies that would not only taste good but would also have lots of Vitamin C. I was surprised at how good it turned out – the kids loved it!

    Yum! I drink an entire container of Simply Orange when I feel something coming on… my husband who is going to school in classes about how the body works, thinks this is nutritionally ludicrous… but I feel better:) Maybe if I do this recipe, he will be a better believer!

    I make this with vanilla soy ice cream for my dairy-allergic child. Same ingredients but the ice cream instead of milk, and I make it with vanilla soy milk sometimes. It is awesome!!!!
