Oranges are available year round in most places, so this is a great go to energy drink. Forget all those processed sports drinks and fake energy drinks. Fruit is where it’s at.

Ingredients

6 cups fresh squeezed orange juice
6 pitted medjool dates
6 fresh mint leaves

Method

Blend all ingredients and drink!

Tips

You can use any oranges for this, tangelos have the most juice and are the sweetest, Valencia’s have a lot of juice but aren’t as sweet and navels are sweet but have more fibre. Look for navels with a big belly button, they are sweeter! If you want to get a lot of calories in drink it all at once or you can drink throughout the day or make less if you just want a snack.

Watermelon & Mint Drink

The warm weather is finally on it’s way and all I want is fruit. Watermelon is one of my favourites to eat in the morning because it’s super hydrating. All you need for this drink is watermelon and fresh mint. So simple and so good.

Watermelon & Mint Drink

Watermelon

Fresh Mint

If you are using a seedless watermelon simply chop up the fruit and blend until smooth. If you’re using a seeded watermelon, remove the seeds then blend. Add some mint and pulse until the mint is finely chopped.

To spritz things up a bit add a little sparkling mineral water.
