With the holiday festivities coming up quick, our schedules (and bodies) are about to start working overtime!  From holiday shopping, event planning, end-of-year work wrap-ups, and holiday parties, now more than ever we need to make sure we’re getting all the essential nutrients so we can look and feel good.

Fruit and veggie smoothies are probably the easiest way to get all those anti-oxidants and essential vitamins.  On days when I’m slacking in the health department, I will literally grab 3-4 fruits and vegetables from my fridge, stuff them in my Ninja blender til it reaches the top, add in some milk and other protein boosters, blend, then drink – it’s just too easy!

When wintertime rolls around, that’s when I make it a point to drink a smoothie everyday, to help me stay healthy, energized, and feeling good.  It’s also a time of the year when I like to kick mine up a notch with Emergen-C Immune+, for an extra boost of vitamin C, zinc, and manganese, plus 7 B-vitamins.  There are over Emergen-C 20 fizzy flavors to choose from, making for endless smoothie combinations and pairings with all your favorite fruits and veggies.

Here are three tasty smoothies that incorporate the refreshing citrus flavor of Emergen-C Super Orange.  Drink these in the mornings, pre- or post-workout, or for a snack whenever you need a healthy kick!

Veggie Kick | Spinach & Carrot Smoothie


  • 1 cup spinach
  • 1 medium carrot, or 1/2 cup baby carrots
  • 1 medium banana
  • 1 1/2 cup of almond milk
  • 2 teaspoons of honey
  • 1/2 packet Emergen-C

Start by cutting the banana and carrot into small pieces so they are easier to blend. Add the spinach, carrot, banana, and milk into the blender and blend. Add more milk to make the smoothie less thick.  Finally, add in the Emergen-C and blend to release the fizzies!

    It’s important to have your daily dose of vitamin C regardless of the season that you’re in. I think these are awesome smoothie recipes and I would love to keep them! Thanks!

  • I have never actually tried carrots in my smoothie. That would be an easy way for me to try a vegetable that I typically “hate.”

  • Brittany Muddamalle

    These look delicious! I’m always looking for healthy treats like this around cold and flu season! Trying to keep my kids healthy!

  • Taylor Smith

  • I am definitely a smoothie girl! I love these smoothie options especially if it can help boost your immune system with the changing months.

  • During the winter, I try to load up on as much vitamin C as possible. It helps boost my immune system and keeps me from getting sick so often.

  • Chelsea Damon

    Such a great idea to put EmergenC in your smoothie! I personally like the taste just by itself but this would pack a smoothie with vitamins. Great idea!

  • Looks delicious! I loved Orange Julius as a child – I will need to try it!
