This smoothie's mixture of fruits packs it with valuable nutrients, including immune-boosting vitamin C from the red currants and blood orange, and potassium from the banana, which can help lower blood pressure and reduce the risk of stroke.

Easily turn this into a vegan smoothie by substituting the milk and yogurt with nut milk varieties of each and the honey with agave syrup.
