Winter time means citrus season, and when I think of smoothies that make full use of the scintillating scents and flavors of citrus, I think of this sweet, syrupy, delicious raw vegan piña colada smoothie. Our whole family delights in this smoothie every time it makes an appearance at the table.

The tartness of the pineapple and orange juice is perfectly balanced by the smooth sweetness of mango and the aromatic flavor of vanilla. Enjoy, and please be sure to let me know how much you and your family enjoy this citrus delight.

I would like to start a tradition of sharing a recipe with you each weekend, and today seems as good as any other day to start doing so. The first recipe comes straight from the free Healthy Holiday Recipe eBook that I shared this past week, and which is still available for download.
