Raspberry-Orange Smoothie

Our last recipe is too good to pass up. The creamy yet tart punch of this raspberry-orange is the perfect ‘pick me up’ on a hot day. But it is still packed with nutrient power! Rasberries contain high amounts of ellagic acid which has been shown to be both anti-inflammatory and slows the growth and development of cancer!
