Smoothies are an easy and nutritious breakfast option for back to school mornings. Adding oranges to a smoothie is a great way to start the day with a dose of immune supporting vitamin C, hydrate and filling fiber! Freezing oranges is a great way to make smoothies so creamy and chilled and also help reduce food waste by freezing oranges until you’re ready to enjoy them!

Oranges are a great source of prebiotic fiber! This is the type of fiber that feeds your good gut microbes and helps them thrive! When those microbes are well nourish, your gut is able to heal itself and digestion runs smoother. Oranges are also a good source of potassium, which is essential for heart function, nerve function and muscle contraction.
