It's been f-f-f-frreeeezing here lately. For mornings when I feel the need to perk up and be warm, I add tangerine essential oil to my smoothie. Tangerine essential oil is a natural digestive aid, blood purifier, and circulation enhancer. So if you're feeling sluggish, add a drop to your breakfast. You'll be amazed...and inspired to be amazing.
Ingredients: (For 2 Servings)
2 cups coconut water
1 cup frozen cranberries
1 cup frozen blueberries
1 drop doTerra tangerine essential oil
*Optional: 1 Scoop high-quality protein powder
Put all ingredients into a blender, and blend to smithereens. Divide between two glasses. Serve and enjoy!
*NOTE: Not all essential oils are created equal. I only use doTerra because their oils are Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade, which is suitable for internal, external, and aromatherapeutic consumption.
*NOTE: All doTerra Essential Oils are extremely potent. I’d recommend 1 drop per 2-serving smoothie. Otherwise, just know that you will have a VERY strong-tasting snack!
