This time of the year, I feel like my immune system always needs a little support. This year I am choosing to do something different and Jeremy is on board with this plan, as well.
We have always been a morning smoothie kind of family. Not only can you hide great fruits and veggies in them but they are also really great on-the-go breakfast options. One of my favorite smoothie recipes includes orange juice, frozen strawberries, and bananas, so good! I decided that I could do a little swapping in this recipe and end up with a SUPER smoothie!!

So, are you wondering what the SUPER part of my new favorite breakfast smoothie is? The answer is Emergen-C® Super Orange! I usually just mix these Emergen-C® Super Orange packets with water in the morning, but for this I decided to add it to our smoothie!

1 cup frozen strawberries
1 large banana
6 oz cold water
1 Emergen-C® Super Orange packet
1. Add frozen strawberries and banana into a blender, I use the individual serving cup for this recipe.
2. Pour water over fruit.
3. Carefully add the Emergen-C® Super Orange packet to the smoothie.
4. Pulse blender for 30 seconds or until smoothie is blended.
5. Serve right way so it stays chilled.
This recipe creates two servings of the smoothie so you can share with your spouse.
The addition of the Emergen-C® Super Orange to this super smoothie gives the orange flavor that orange juice gives but also allows for an extra immune support. Love it!!
Now that I have tried this with our favorite smoothie, I am excited to try other combinations. With over 20 flavors and a variety of special formulas, I know we will not get bored with our morning smoothies.
When you pick up your smoothie ingredients for the week make sure you stop in the health and wellness aisles at Walmart to also grab some Emergen-C® varieties.
What smoothie combinations would you create using Emergen-C® to help you get a fall immune system support?

With so many people catching (and sharing!) colds right now, I am definitely wanting to boost my Vitamin C intake. The smoothie sounds perfect for my family, too. And, of course, keeping Emergen-C in the house is a must during the winter.
That smoothie sounds so good. Great flavor combo #client

YES!!! I love that you use your Emergen-C® products in smoothies! I do the same thing! Super smart! We need to be sure we are really taking great care of ourselves all year but even more so in the winter!
WOW, this is a great post! I have a brand new box of Emergen-C and I never thought to add it to a smoothie. With us being in the flu and cold season this is the best time to create a healthy smoothie like this one. The kids love blueberries so I may try adding the Emergen-C to a blueberry smoothie!
Jennifer Van Huss says
Vitamin C is so important for your body in the winter! Sometimes good oranges are hard to find so Emergen-C is a great alternative! I never thought of adding it to a smoothie before! Your smoothie sounds very tasty!

I have been making a green smoothie with orange juice. This seems like a good addition to have around when there is no orange juice in the refrigerator. I like my morning smoothies!
Shelley King says
Having 3 kids in school that bring home junk every day this is what we need. My family loves smoothies and we have them often. This is perfect. Thank you for the great recipe!

My immune system boosting tips: digestive enzymes, probiotics & vitamin D! Knocking on wood when I say this, but I haven't been sick in 2 years!
