With the world in chaos due to the coronavirus, this is a very stressful and uncertain time. One way to deal with the stress is to slow down and try to take extra good care of yourself. I’m also trying to remember that there is only so much we can control, so all we can do is try our best.

Smoothie Recipe Highlights

This dairy-free Orange Banana Smoothie is a delicious way to treat yourself. It is also full of nourishing and immune-boosting ingredients.

  • One orange provides almost 80% of the recommended intake of Vitamin C. This recipe includes 2 oranges per serving!
  • This is one of the easiest smoothies you’ll ever make. You only need 3 ingredients, plus water.
  • Each of the two servings has 286% of the daily value of Vitamin C and 14% of the daily value of magnesium.

Recipe Steps & Tips

Step One

This easy smoothie recipe is as simple as it gets. You literally just combine all of the ingredients in your blender and blend.

Step Two

Vitamin C tends to dissipate with exposure to air, so it’s best to drink this smoothie straight out of the blender.


  • If you want to make this smoothie a full meal, I recommend adding two scoops of your favorite protein powder.
  • If your oranges aren’t naturally very sweet, you can add up to two teaspoons of raw honey to this smoothie (vegans can use maple syrup or pitted dates).

Where can I get coconut cubes? What if I can’t find them?

I bought a bag of coconut cubes in the freezer section of Costco. You can also find them at natural foods stores. If you can’t find them, you can make your own by freezing full-fat coconut milk into ice cube trays.

Can I use any kind of orange for this recipe?

Yes! I have made it using both cara cara oranges and naval oranges.
