Ingredients

  • 2 medium oranges (10 ounces total), peeled and cut into chunks
  • 1/4 cup whole, raw almonds
  • 1 small sweet potato (about 4 ounces), scrubbed and coarsely chopped
  • 1 medium apple (8 ounces), cored and cubed
  • 1/2 cup water

Preparation

In a blender, combine oranges, almonds, sweet potato, apple, and water; blend, scraping down sides occasionally, until smooth. Strain juice and, if desired, thin with additional water. Refrigerate up to 2 days (shake before serving).



    Almonds' protein helps build and repair muscle. Plus, the potassium (twice as much as you get in two bananas) balances your electrolytes and fluids.
