Orange power smoothie

You might not know this, but today (april 27th) is Kingsday here in the Netherlands. Since the color of the royal family is orange, half the country is covered in orange things. Personally I find it is just an extra day of work, but across the country people are celebrating. That’s been a no go for the last two years so I am guessing today will be particularly festive! And since most people are out and about I figured they could use an orange power smoothie to kickstart the day.

Nice and orange

Smoothies are my go to quick breakfast if I am making one (I tend to do intermittent fasting, so breakfast is not always on my agenda) but I do always make sure to incorporate some kind of vegetable in it. It prevents the smoothie from being one glass of sugar. Although truth be told; carrots are rather sweet too, so you would do good to add something like spinach here as well. But that would totally ruin the color. So I kept it orange today!

What you can do, is simply add half an avocado to the blender. That would make it creamier and wouldn’t have that big of an effect on the color. I topped the smoothie bowl with hemp seeds, coconut and almond slivers. But you can add your favorite topping as well. Think about fresh fruits, other nuts and seeds etc. For some extra immune enhancing power I added a teaspoon of turmeric as well. Be aware that it might stain your blender too. I find that usually doesn’t stay for too long. So while the sides of the blender might be a bit yellowish for a while, after having used it for different things it will go away.
