Strawberry and Blood Orange Smoothie

2 servings (about 2 cups)

This dairy-free smoothie recipe pairs luscious strawberries with refreshing blood orange juice. Strawberries are packed with vitamins and flavonoids such as fisetin. Early research suggests that fisetin may help control common complications of diabetes and boost memory and cognition. Blood orange juice gets its red color from anthocyanins, plant pigments that have strong antioxidant and anti-cancer properties.
