Tangerine/Mango Smoothie and Juicer and Orange Giveaway!!!


We have a wonderful Breville Juicer, that is easy to use and great for a variety of fruit and vegetable smoothies. As far as appliances go I have always been a fan of Breville its an Australian company with great classy and very functional appliances. I have an espresso machine and panini maker and now a juicer! There's a wonderful website called FoodThinkers.com by Breville and I contribute to the healthy snack column, its so much fun. I love making fresh juice for Jasmine and us I must confess though its easier to make a whole batch for a couple of days. 

A few days ago, I made a simple tangerine and mango smoothie. Not just any tangerine I ordered them from The Orange Shop in Florida, they ship fresh citrus from the groove. The owner Pete has been a citrus grower his whole life and The Orange Shop has been in business since 1936. 

Fresh Juices are packed with nutrients the mango and tangerine juice provided more than a days requirement for vitamin C, potassium, B6 and folate. I recommend buying al natural juices not juice drinks which are often marketed as healthy but loaded with sugar and only a small percentage of fresh juice.



You simple peel the tangerines or oranges and blend, simple as that!


and out comes the delicious juice


So I figured what would be cooler than getting a box of oranges with a juicer as a giveaway!, The Orange Shop has kindly agreed to send the oranges and Breville has sent me this juicer to re send to the lucky winner.

Rules:
  1. live in the US so so sorry but the juicer is going to be expensive to ship and the fruit wouldn't do well going over sea's
  2. Consider following @FoodThinkers (they tweet really cool foodie stuff) and @TheOrangeShop (for all things citrus!)
  3. Leave a comment telling us what citrus you would like to try from http://www.floridaorangeshop.com/ 
  4. I will pick a winner at random and announce it next friday April 23rd 







Good Luck!!

  17. Hubs and I like the ruby red grapefruits. We do not have a juicer and would love to try using one. Hubs has grapefruit or cranberry juice each morning before starting his day.

  18. Nice giveaway, Rebecca! Although I don't think you better enter me...I have a juicer AND access to all the oranges I want so this would be a fab gift for someone who doesn't.

    I still have a problem loading some sort of script, but the computer asks me if I want to stop running it and if I say yes, your site loads. Very strange, but at least I can read you now!

    Computers are so annoying, am I right? I had a problem for 6 months with URL's to my old recipes. Finally figured it out with the help of my computer guru.

  47. Oh, my! Citrus fruit is a weakness of mine, and oranges are at the top of that list. I ate so many at my grandmother's when I was a kid, that I literally turned orange. Mom thought I might have "yellow jaundice" - back in the day! LOL! Would love to win the juicer and some great Florida oranges. LOVE THE BLOG!
