Sunrise Citrus Root Smoothie

Sunrise Citrus & Root Smoothie

This is a wonderful creamy smoothie blend which pairs perfectly with your mornings! If you don't have access to blood oranges, simply replace with any seasonal orange variety you can find. Sweetener is optional as noted below; this blend is mildly sweet on its own, with its starring quality being the smooth, creamy texture. You might love it more than your typical morning OJ!
