Citrus Mistress Smoothie

If you don't mind a little tang, then this smoothie is going to be perfect for you. Isn't it funny how our citrus, acidic tasting fruits are actually have a very alkalising effect on our bodies and is a great way to start the morning and get the metabolism working in it's optimal fashion. Adjust the sweetness to your liking and I imagine this smoothie would freeze very nicely for a great summer ice-cream.


1 orange, peeled and chopped
1 lemon, peeled and chopped
1-2 tablespoons coconut nectar / honey (depending on how sweet you like it)
1 serve vanilla protein powder (I use The Healthy Chef pea protein)
¼ cup cashews
1 cup cashew milk (or milk of choice)


Place all ingredients in a high speed blender and blend for 60 sec until smooth and creamy. Pour into glass and enjoy.

Serves 1
