Orange Melon Smoothie Recipe

This smoothie has become one of my favorites!  To me it tastes very similar to a orange dreamsicle just not quite as sweet.  This would be right up a kid’s alley and perfect for a summer afternoon.

AS for Nutrition it offers a low 150 Calories and 1 gram of fat per serving.  This great tasting smoothie also comes in low on the charts for cholesterol and sodium, two things people usually get too much of in their diet.  So with this smoothie clocking only 1% of your RDA for Cholesterol and 2% of your RDA for sodium you just can’t beat it!

We have talked about what is not in this smoothie let’s talk about two things it does have in it.  It packs a whopping 109% of your RDA for Vitamin C.  Vitamin C is an important part of everyone’s diet.  It helpsdetoxify our bodies which helps us to better deal with stress.  It also supports the good bacteria in our stomach and stops bad bacteria and viruses.  It really is a great immune system support.  This yummy smoothie also has a fair amount of dietary fiber to help keep things moving and dietary fiber is another one of those things most people do not get enough of.

So what is not to love?  A great tasting smoothie that has great health benefits too, plus tastes a lot like aorange dreamsicle.  It goes without saying that this has quickly become a family favorite!
