Raspberry Orange

Ingredients

  • 1 banana - peeled
  • 1 cara cara orange - peeled
  • 2 oz raspberries
  • 1 tsp acai berry
  • 3 tbsp cashews
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup ice

Cara cara oranges look like a regular orange on the outside, but when you open them up, they have a distinctly pink hue, almost like a grapefruit. They’re also sweeter than traditional oranges, with a hint of berry flavor, and have no seeds. Like traditional oranges, cara cara oranges are full of vitamin C, folate and potassium. With more antioxidants per serving than other commonly eaten berries, acai berries are low in sugar, but high in iron, fiber and calcium. They’ve got anti-inflammatory properties as well. Add in some raspberries for more vitamin C and anti-inflammatory power, a banana for energy, and cashews for healthy fat and protein, and you have a deliciously fruity drink that will keep you going all day long.
