Ginger Raspberry Squeeze Smoothie

Ginger Raspberry Squeeze Smoothie

The juice of:

1 lemon
1 lime
1 orange
1 grapefruit


1 cup frozen raspberries
3 drops doTerra Ginger Essential Oil
1 tbsp maca powder
1 tbsp goji berries

Hand juice the citrus fruit and add to blender. Add all dry ingredients, then add the frozen raspberries, and 1-5 drops of ginger essential oil. (Start low and add each time you make it until you find your perfect taste.

This smoothie has amazing flavor and taste. Fit is the first time that I have added oils to a smoothie but will not be the last. Up until now I had just been adding them to room temperature water, or in my favorite hot drink, Lemon Lime Peppermint Water.

I love making smoothies and the wonderful thing about a simple one like this is it is so easy to make variation. Below are some optional ingredients to add or swap out.

Optional Ingredients:
Dry Ingredients:

1tbsp Chia Seeds
1tbsp Flax Seeds
1tbsp Hemp Hearts
1tbsp coconut flakes

Frozen Ingredients:
1 cup frozen peaches
1 cup frozen blueberries
1 cup frozen kale
1 cup frozen mixed berries

You could also swap out one or more of the citrus fruits for juiced carrots. I have so many new smoothies I want to try and many doTerra oils to experiment with. I will continue to post new recipes from time to time as I experiment with Smoothie and Juice recipes. And I collect mine and favourites from around the web you can find them shared here in a OneNote notebook, there are subsections for Juices, Smoothies, Gluten Free Options and Other. I also have another notebook for my essential oils research and notes.
