Despite NASA’s endorsement, former astronaut Buzz Aldrin was quoted as saying that “Tang sucks.” Well yes. You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to know that a fresh fruit smoothie is way better for you than sugary powdered drink mixes. However, if like me, the flavor of processed orange “juices” has a nostalgic charm, then you’ll love my nutrient dense remix.
The addition of bee pollen adds that special tang as well an incredible nutritional boost. Pollen is actually 40% protein, half of which is in the form of free amino acids which are ready to be used directly by the body. This honey-bee made superfood is also a rich source of B Vitamins, digestive enzymes, and contains a hight amount of anti-inflammatory antioxidants.
If you’re new to bee pollen, this smoothie is a tasty way to enjoy the benefits of this powerful healing food.
Serve a glass of Tang-y Orange Smoothie alongside breakfast or brunch in place of regular OJ, or anytime you’re craving a citrusy pick-me-up (or want to play astronaut.) My Tang-y Orange Smoothie is kid-approved so double the recipe and share some with the whole family!
