This immune-boosting citrus smoothie is a blast! It is made with citrus, ginger, turmeric, yogurt, and other health-improving ingredients that your body needs. This cup of goodness hopes to keep you stay safe from viral infections.



  • ½1 whole orange
  • ¼ whole lemon (if small then use up to ½)
  • ¼ of whole grapefruit
  • ½ cup of plant-based yogurt (but any yogurt works. I have used both dairy and dairy-free before)
  • ½ cup of plant-based milk (I used almond)
  • 1 small banana or half of big one; (frozen)
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ginger
  • ½ teaspoon of ground/powdered turmeric or 1 teaspoon of fresh turmeric (this can also be optional)
  • A dash of black pepper (necessary if you are using Turmeric; helps with its absorption)
  • 1 clove of garlic (optional; ignore if you not keen about raw garlic)


  1. Wash all fruits (except the banana that is, of course, frozen).
  2. Peel the orange, grapefruit, and lemon. Dice into cubes to make them easy to blend.
  3. Start by adding the liquid first, almond milk or any plant-based milk, yogurt, then the orange, grapefruit, lemon, and banana. Add the ginger, turmeric and garlic as well.
  4. Blend on high until smooth and creamy.
  5. Garnish with a slice of lime, or mint leaves, share with a loved one, and enjoy.


This recipe makes 2 cups or 16 oz

Feel free to add ice blocks as you wish.

You can also add garlic. I make it with garlic from time to time.

This smoothie is kid-friendly because my kids love it.

You may likely feel the pulp in this drink, and that’s ok.

This is a light, refreshing drink, if you desire for it to be thicker, please add more banana, and reduce plant-based milk. Also, double the recipe to make as much as you want.
