Ever since I started my health and fitness journey in January, it has been really important to me to make sure that I'm getting all the vitamins that I need. Vitamins help me feel my best, and they give me the fuel that I need when I workout each day which is definitely necessary during my 45 minute Flywheel classes. There are a couple different ways that I make sure I'm getting enough vitamins such as maintaining a healthy diet packed with fruits and vegetables, taking a multi-vitamin each morning, and eating a protein bar before or after working out that has a lot of nutrients. My favorite way to make sure that I'm getting enough vitamins though is by drinking a smoothie each day! My husband and I love starting out our day with a smoothie, and we've been trying out a lot of new recipes. One ingredient that we like to add to make sure we are getting enough vitamin C is Emergen-C that I pick up at my local Walgreens. Emergen-C is packed with B vitamins, antioxidants†, electrolytes plus more vitamin C than 10 oranges^. How amazing is that?! It is an easy and delicious way to take vitamins that are important to my healthy lifestyle. Here's how to make our current favorite recipe which is an orange smoothie with Emergen-C that's perfect for breakfast or a snack:

Ingredients:

1 ripe banana, cut into 1 inch pieces
1/2 cup of orange juice
1/2 of an orange, cut up into chunks
1/4 cup of unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1 Super Orange Emergen-C packet
1/2 cup of Ice

    How to make it:

    Add the ice into a blender. Then add the almond milk, orange juice, Emergen-C, orange, and banana. Blend until smooth and enjoy! This recipe makes 1 smoothie.

    This smoothie is so refreshing, and it's my favorite recipe right now!
