In honor of this past Sunday being National Orange Juice Day, we thought we’d give you a little taste of America’s breakfast juice, but with a tropical, lower-calorie twist. Yahoo! After all, we’re huge “orange fruit” fans but we realize, like all juices, the calories can add up quickly because it takes a good deal of fruit to get the juice. So since we all love a little citrus in our lives we’ve concocted a lighter version!
The best parts of this Skinny Kiwi Orange Juice? It’s packed with water and potassium, both which help to restore the body’s normal fluid balance (goodbye bloat) and hydrate you (hello energy!). Plus you even get a little fiber (thank you kiwis—to further help your body eliminate toxins). Add a skin-nourishing dose of beta carotene, vitamin E and vitamin C to kiss vibrant, dewey skin, hello. These nutrients also work to keep your cells healthy.
Say hello to a great pick me up in the morning – Can’t wait for you to give it a whirl! Good mornin’ sunshine!
