Ever since I got my new Blendtec Blender I have been on the look out for some great new smoothie recipes to try! This one is one of our new favorites! We call it the Citrus Bliss Smoothie and it’s got tons of vitamin C packed in! We will be drinking lots of these all winter long to help combat against colds. Plus, it reminds me of summer. Which will come in handy when we are fighting -20 temperatures! It’s a mix of orange, tangerine, nectarine and apple. It’s sweet, refreshing and absolutely delicious.
Another thing I love about it is that I can add some extra fiber right in and you would never know! Yes, we are going to talk about fiber for a second. Fiber is so important and most of us don’t get enough. I know that I
don’t didn’t. Most adults only get 15 grams of fiber a day while The Institute of Medicine recommends that women get 25 grams and men get 38 grams. A day! Getting enough fiber helps us to maintain a healthy weight and lowers our risk or diabetes and heart disease. Plus, when our bodies are working at our best – we just plain feel better.
So in an effort to be healthier I have been working on getting more fiber in my diet. I’ve been trying to add more fiber filled foods, but sometimes I need a little extra help. So I have been supplementing with Metamucil.
I honestly was a little intimidated purchasing this for the first time! I didn’t know how it would taste or how it would effect me. I was really surprised when I got to Meijer and saw that the Metamucil had so many products and flavors to try. Right now in my cabinets I have the Berry Smooth and Orange Smooth, but I think that the Pink Lemonade will be added to our collection too! I’ve been adding a serving to my smoothies each morning. You can’t even taste them in there! And as an added bonus, it has been helping to keep me full longer.
You can find a full line of Metamucil products at Meijer!
