I love this sweet and spicy springtime smoothie because it’s full of flavor and looks amazing. This fresh orange smoothie comes packed with real nutrients and it’s perfect to boost your immune system in the springtime.

This smoothie turned out spicy and sweet, with a nice spicy aftertaste from using a combination of ginger, turmeric, cardamom and white pepper.

  • Blender


  • 1 cucumber fabio
  • 2 carrots
  • 1 yellow bell pepper
  • 1.5 avocado (skin and seed removed)
  • 1.5 banana (peeled)
  • 1/2 grapefruit (3 slices, skin included, organic)
  • 200 g frozen spinach
  • 1/2 red beet (skin removed, cut big)
  • 1/2 stick celery
  • 3-4 tbsp frozen sea buckthorn
  • 1 big tsp ginger powder
  • 1 big tsp cardamom powder
  • 1 big tsp turmeric powder
  • 1 tsp white pepper
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin coconut oil
  • 600 ml water (or enough to cover the ingredients)


  • Add everything into your blender, including water.
  • Blend on medium to high until everything looks smooth and creamy. If it looks too thick, just add more water and blend again until creamy.

Avoid using the skin of conventionally grown citrus fruits due to a high risk of pesticide residues that may be present. Either use organic citrus fruits or remove skin (washing doesn’t help in this case).
