How To Make Blueberry Grapefruit Orange Smoothie:

The smoothie consists of 3 main ingredients which are the fruits, and a liquid to help the blending process.

These are the ingredients you will need:

  1. Frozen Blueberries
  2. Fresh Grapefruit Juice
  3. Fresh Orange Juice
  4. Water or coconut water for blending

The process of making the smoothie:

  • Juice your own grapefruit and orange (avoid using store-bought fruit juices)
  • Grab a blender, then add your frozen berries in first since they need to be closer to the blades.
  • Add the rest of your ingredients to the blender and blend.
  • The blending took 2-3 minutes when I made  the smoothie, but it will depend on the power of your blender.
  • Serve this blueberry smoothie with fruit juice and enjoy!

Smoothie Recipe Tips & Customization Ideas

Since the smoothie recipe is quite basic, only containing 4 ingredients, there are plenty of options for you to elevate it a bit more.

Here are some ideas:

  • For a thicker smoothie, add 1/2 cup of frozen banana slices, it will also help add more sweetness and nutrients to the smoothie.
  • The smoothie is fat-free, which means it’s not as filling. If you want to make it a bit more filling and rich, add a tablespoon of chia seeds or nut butter.
  • Instead of blueberries you can use other berries too; raspberries or strawberries both work just fine.
  • As an addition to the berries, you can add 1/2 cup of pineapple pieces too, which can add a nice tropical flavor to the smoothie.
