I just drove to The Villages here in Florida to go to Fresh Market - they have such a great produce selection and it always inspires me. Their display of citrus particularly caught my eye - it's always fun to try new varieties of citrus. Today I picked up some Honey Tangerines. Since I love honey, I had to pick some up. They were pretty good - although a little dry. Maybe it was the particular tangerine I picked out. I will have to give them another try - but the flavor was very good.
Here's a recipe to try that may help get you in the spirit of citrus season - and, if it's been a little cloudy and cold where you are, than this will surely spark up your day - and it's full of great nutrients!
The Sunshine Drink
In a blender (Vitamix is the best) mix the following (be sure to use organic ingredients, if possible):
2 cups orange juice (I use Uncle Matt's Organic - it's the best)
2 large carrots (no need to peel, just clean them and cut off the ends)
Enough ice to make it the consistency you like (I use about 1 cup)
Pour and enjoy! The brilliant orange/yellow color will automatically brighten your day!
