Citrus Celebration!

Ellie Wilson, MS, RDN Senior Nutritionist

Feeling the blues about cooler weather? No worries, we can bring some sunshine into your day with fresh Citrus from Chile! Navel oranges, $10 for 10 this week, have a lot going for them – perky, packable, and a great way to earn AdvantEdge Rewards points! Easy to peel, slice or chop, these oranges will brighten up your plate and your attitude. A great source of Vitamin C, and a good source of Thiamin and Fiber, they are a sweet way to energize and appetize. Check out the recipes and serving suggestions below – we are sure we can warm you up to some delicious ideas!  

Power up your morning with a Chocolaty-Orange Smoothie!

Crunch at lunch! Pomegranates are in, but you can also sub dried cherries or cranberries in this easy recipe for Spinach Pomegranate Orange Salad with Quick Pickled Red Onions.

Orange-Almond Parfait – Snack attack, or fresh dessert.

  • Layer PICS Vanilla Greek Yogurt, and peeled, chopped oranges. Top with Market 32 Sliced Almonds, toasted for extra flavor.

Orange Chia Pudding – make one or 5, they will “chill out” for a few days when covered and refrigerated.

  • Combine 2 TBSP Chia seeds, ½ cup of unsweetened almond milk, and ½ Tsp of PICS Honey (optional), mixing well. Refrigerate for 30 minutes. Meantime, peel and chop one orange. After 30 minutes, add chopped orange and top with ½ Tsp of Shredded Coconut.
