Does the mention of vitamin C bring citrus and berries to mind? What about bell peppers? Though not commonly thought of as a high source of vitamins, bell pepper is a great way to get your daily needs. What's even better: It tastes delicious in smoothies! Refreshing, light, and full of healthy greens, this nutritional drink boosts energy and makes for an awesome pre-workout snack. It even tastes great with additions like pineapple, mango, or ginger—so don't be shy about experimenting.

  • 1 green apple, cored, chopped

  • 1 cup water
  • 2 ice cubes

  1. Add all ingredients to blender
  2. Blend until smooth
