Orange Apple Green Smoothie by Better Me For Life - BetterMeforLife.comSweet and tart combine deliciously in this refreshing orange apple green smoothie. I love the flavors of citrus, and blending it with a sweet fruit like an apple is a little piece of heaven for me.

I find myself saying this often about green smoothies, but it’s true: you’d never guess there was a vegetable in this smoothie if it weren’t for the color. The color is always a dead giveaway…

Low in calories, oranges are rich in the dietary fiber, pectin, which can help to keep blood sugar levels under control. Oranges also have high levels of vitamin C, an immune system supporter and powerful antioxidant.

While apples do not contain large amounts of fiber or Vitamin C, they DO contain polyphenols that can help prevent blood sugar spikes and act as antioxidants. Be sure to use the apple with the skin as most beneficial nutrients come from the skin and not the pulp. The type of fiber found in apples combine with other nutrients in the apple to provide you with the kind of health benefits associated with much higher levels of fiber.

Spinach is ranked very high in nutrient richness in the vegetable world. It is rich in vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients. Spinach may help to protect against inflammatory problems, oxidative stress-related problems, cardiovascular problems and bone problems.

This smoothie is packed with beneficial nutrients and can help with weight loss. Drink up knowing you’re feeding your body a healthful meal!
