Linda D's Orange Fruit Smoothie

Packed with vitamin C, it offers great possibilities. And other great plytochemicals. This Linda D’s Orange Fruit Smoothie recipe has been known to make your total cholesterol level fall. This makes you 6.8 days younger!
Preparation Time:  5 minutes
Cooking Time:  0 minutes
Servings  4
Serving Size:  8 ounce servings


2 cups cut up honey dew melon
2 cups frozen or fresh halved hulled strawberries
2 cups frozen raspberries or other berries
2 tablespoons frozen orange juice concentrate
4 ice cubes or 1 cup crushed ice
1 large tablespoon quick-oats


Combine all ingredients in a blender container. Cover; blend until smooth.


This frosty fiber packed breakfast shake must be served cold. With a few nuts, this works as a great afternoon snack, or as a quick breakfast. A tip of the chef’s hat to Linda DeFrancisco for this – she has a friend who had high blood pressure and high total cholesterol. Since substituting this drink for her normal saturated fat Denny’s breakfast, her blood pressure and total cholesterol have marched toward normality.


1 glass of orange juice can replace the tablespoon of orange juice concentrate. Frozen blueberries or mixed berries may replace the raspberries. If fruit is fresh rather than frozen, add another 2 cubes.
