Vitamin C Smoothie

We’re in the thick of winter, and let’s be honest: the dark, cold mornings can make it really difficult to throw back the covers and take on the day. If this sounds like a problem you’re currently facing, eating a nutrient-dense breakfast can to help you begin the morning with a more energetic start.

Oranges have an uplifting and energizing scent, and they’re also loaded with vitamin C which is perfect for keeping your immune systems strong. This vitamin C smoothie is combined with nutrient-dense Vega® Protein & Greens, mandarin oranges and ginger for a breakfast you’ll look forward to when the alarm goes off!


  • 1 scoop Vanilla Vega® Protein & Greens
  • 3 small or 2 medium mandarin oranges, peeled
  • 1 cup Silk® unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 tsp dried ginger
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 4-5 ice cubes


  • Add all ingredients except for the ice to your blender and blend until completely smooth.

  • Toss in a few ice cubes and continue blending, adjusting the thickness by adding more if you wish.

  • Pour into a tall glass and serve garnished with an extra sprinkle of cinnamon if you like.
