Oranges are rich in dietary fiber, pectin, which is very effective in persons with excess body weight. They help fight cancer, fight viral infections, and relieve constipation and help prevent kidney diseases and reduce the risk of kidney stones.

They are full of good nutrition (lots of vitamin C), low in calories, contain no saturated fats or cholesterol, and are rich in dietary fiber and pectin. Pectin has also been shown to reduce blood cholesterol.

Spinach was a superfood even before there was the term superfood I’m referring of course to Popeye the Sailor Man. One can of the green stuff and he turned into muscle popping tornado of energy. Even without Popeye’s recommendation, spinach contains more nutrients per calorie than any other food on the earth. It is loaded with vitamins like A, K, D, and E and a host of trace minerals and is a good source of omega 3 fatty acid.

Unregulated chemicals in tap water are not good for us! Most of us already know that our tap water is filled with unregulated chemicals! And many of us always filter it before drinking it. I have for decades.

Here is the water filter I am using and very happy with it. The only way to remove fluoride is to use a reverse osmosis system and some are better than others. When I did my research this is the one I decided on.

  1. Sarah, if you are worried about that then the first time use 1 cup of spinach. Taste it and see if it would be ok to add more. I do not find it bitter at all but we all have different taste buds. It is important that you enjyoy it…..we need to enjoy all of our food.

  2. I love this recipe because it’s so easy and tasty! I did not find it bitter at all, but my oranges were not very sweet, so I few times I’ve thrown in a handfull of red grapes.

  3. Spinach is such a healthy food to eat and is so very economical. There’s a lot of nutrition per dollar of spinach.

    We enjoy spinach in a variety of ways but one of the kids has a hard time with it but loves it in smoothies like this.

  4. very good! I am collecting recipes good for seniors. Time to look into a financial supplement and serving God. I have been gardening for seniors for years but getting too senior myself. I love the folks and good smoothies that address their health needs would be a labor of love.

  5. Hello Diana,
    thank you so much for the recipe. I am trying to find a healthy breakfast solution for tomorrow morning. Trying to decide between the apple green smoothie and this one. Just one question – will adding some (soaked) seeds (pepitas, sunflower, flax, sesame, poppie, etc.) or nuts or maybe ginger root will spoil the nutritional benefits?
    cheers,
    Gloria

  6. I have literally just made this.
    I used
    2 cups baby spinach
    3 oranges
    Handful of ice cubes, (its 31 degrees Celsius here)
    Dash of water.

    Yum!

  7. Freeze the orange segments night before – makes it cold. Also can add a bit of vanilla extract or tiny bit of honey. I also add 1/3 C of GF oatmeal to hold off the hunger. It satisfies me all morning.

    1. Deb, that sounds yummy. One thing to note is that the digestive system prefers warm or room temperature beverages and food as it doesn’t challenge it to work so hard to get to body temperature to digest it.

  8. I have been drinking this for a while. The difference being that i use carton orange juice rather than oranges and water. I assume that this is ok but maybe not quite at nutritious? I sometimes add a small orange for texture

  9. Delicious!!! I did without knowing it actyually is a smothie… Lovely. Will be drinking this everytime i have thw ingridients

  10. Their recipes are incredible, simple to make, super salubrious, and besides, they do not spend much time on their work and thank you for sharing.
