Do you like both feeling and looking great? Vitamin C supports the maintenance and formation of collagen in our skin (can you say smooth and soft?) and help wounds heal, blood vessels stay healthy and all tissues remain flexible. This Sumie (A smoothie + juice’s love child) is rich with it! This invigorating recipe will meet your cravings for a sunny and very satisfying drink in the midst of winter. The turmeric, ginger and grapefruit explodes in the mouth while banana, vanilla and juicy oranges sweetens things up. Total flavor fest!

Yield: 2 large drinks


For the juice
  • 2 blood oranges
  • 2 oranges
  • 1 red grapefruit
  • 1 lemon
  • 3 kumquats
  • 1-2 knobs of ginger
  • 2 fresh turmeric ‘fingers’
Blend it up with
  • 1 banana, peeled & frozen is divine
  • a pinch of pure ground vanilla
  • 3 tbsp hemp hearts
  • 10 sprouted almonds, peeled
For extra Vitamin C kick
  • 1 tsp rose hip powder
  • 1/2 tsp camu camu


  1. Peel citrus fruits and scrape off peel of ginger and turmeric with a spoon, cut up in smaller chunks and run through the juicer. Don’t forget to taste this juice alone – it would wake up any zombie. Promise.
  2. Add juice to a blender with banana, vanilla, almonds and hemp hearts (and optional extra superfood boosts). Blend until smooth and frothy.
  3. Serve!
