❓Recipe FAQs

How much vitamin C is in one orange?

As you probably already know, oranges are packed with vitamin c. One medium orange contains 83 mg of vitamin c, which is 92% of the daily value. It’s an antioxidant, so it helps to protect the body from free radicals. It can also help you absorb and store iron. It is necessary to get it from your diet, as our bodies do not produce it.

Is orange juice good to put in smoothies?

Absolutely. I love using both the pulp and the juice for smoothies.

Do you peel oranges for smoothies?

I always peel my oranges for smoothies. The peel is quite bitter and hard to digest.

Can oranges be frozen for smoothies?

You can definitely use frozen oranges in a smoothie and it will help thicken it up. In this smoothie I use fresh oranges to blend easily with the other frozen ingredients.

How do you cut an orange for a smoothie?

You can simply peel the orange and cut it into chunks: cut the top and bottom off first. Then, stand it up on the cutting board and slice down around the curve of the orange, all around the outside until the whole peel is removed. Cut it into chunks and add it to the smoothie.
