Blueberry-orange yogurt smoothie

Both fresh orange juice and blueberries are high in vitamin C, antioxidants, and fibre. A half-cup of freshly squeezed orange juice provides roughly the same amount of nutrients found in the fresh fruit, but much of the pulp and membranes are strained out of most commercial brands, so you lose out on most of the fibre and flavonoids.
