Preparation

Smoothies are a fab way to start the day - not only are they very filling, but they're also a great way to kickstart your metabolism and get your essential vitamins and nutrients. Bananas are great for keeping your heart healthy and for weight loss in particular, as well as containing plenty of fibre and loads of essential nutrients.

Bananas are inexpensive and you can buy them absolutely everywhere, which means they're a fab choice for adding to your smoothie. They have a natural sweetness to them too, which means you won't need to add in any additional sugar or honey to your smoothie.

This smoothie also uses blood orange juice which you can find in most supermarkets. You can just as easily use freshly squeezed blood orange juice, or if you can't get your hands on blood oranges, you can use the regular kind. Blood oranges are really high in vitamin C. Vitamin C is an antioxidant and is required for a large number of metabolic functions in the human body, and can help repair tissues and ensuring healthy gums.

Another one of the health benefits of Vitamin C is that it aids in healing wounds and shows benefits on the adrenal gland function. Vitamin C is not produced by the human body and therefore must be produced by our diet.
