Why You Will Love This Clementine Smoothie

If you have ever had a smoothie made with orange and liked it, this smoothie tastes very similar to orange smoothies.

But, the smoothie is completely dairy-free, and has immune-boosting properties, thanks to the Vitamin C in the clementine and the other goodness from the ginger.

Here’s an overview of the benefits of this smoothie and why you will love it:

  • Rich in Vitamins: Packed with vitamin C from clementines and mangoes, this smoothie helps support a healthy immune system and skin health.
  • Digestive Aid: The ginger in the smoothie aids digestion and can help soothe an upset stomach.
  • Hydration: Coconut water is a natural hydrator due to its electrolyte content, making this smoothie excellent for rehydration.
  • Bone Health: Yogurt provides calcium and vitamin D, essential for bone health, supporting stronger bones.
  • Energy Boosting: Natural sugars in fruits and honey provide a quick energy boost without the crash associated with refined sugars.
  • Anti-inflammatory Properties: Ginger contains bioactive compounds that have anti-inflammatory effects, which can help reduce inflammation in the body.
  • Heart Health: The fiber in the fruits helps to manage cholesterol levels, which is beneficial for heart health.

If you enjoy this smoothie, I recommend that you also try my orange and passionfruit smoothie and my anti-inflammatory orange turmeric smoothie recipe!

Smoothie Variations And Recipe Notes

I love experimenting with different ingredients and flavors.

Every time I develop a smoothie recipe, I tend to test numerous variations.

Below I am going to leave some options for you to change the recipe. All these suggestions have been personally tested and loved by me.

  1. Protein Boost: For extra protein, add a scoop of unflavored and unsweetened protein powder.
  2. Vegan-Friendly: For a vegan smoothie, swap the dairy yogurt for a vegan alternative. I loved using coconut yogurt!
  3. No Ginger Root: If you don’t have fresh ginger root, use powdered ginger. 1/4 teaspoon of ground-dried ginger is enough.

Equipment

Blender Type Suitability
Nutribullet 600
Vitamix Blender Propel 510
BlendJet 4000mAh x
Ninja Blender BL610
Oster 6640 Blender
Hamilton Beach 58148A Blender
AMZChef Blender 1800 W
Wamife Blender

Out of the 8 blenders and models that I tested this recipe on, only the BlendJet 4000mAh wasn’t compatible.

This blender just isn’t strong enough to handle the frozen fruit. The smoothie is also quite thick, which causes issues.

So, if you are making this smoothie, avoid using a BlendJet 4000mAh.

Clementine Smoothie FAQs:

How Do I Prepare Clementines For a Smoothie?

To prepare clementines for a smoothie, start by peeling them thoroughly to remove all the skin and white pith, which can be bitter. Then, separate the segments and remove any seeds.

Is This Smoothie Suitable For Kids?

Absolutely! This smoothie is kid-friendly with its sweet, fruity flavors and smooth texture. Just ensure that the ginger flavor is not too strong for them, as some children may find it too spicy.

Can I Store Leftover smoothie, And How Long Will It Last?

It's best to enjoy your smoothie fresh, however, if you have leftovers, you can store them in the refrigerator in a sealed container for up to 24 hours. Just give it a good stir or shake before drinking, as separation may occur.
