Citrus Berry Smoothie

I happened to have an orange in my refrigerator that was screaming at me. I decided to put the juice into one of my smoothies.
This smoothie is not as thick as I normally like them and is not as filling to me. It is quite refreshing however, so if you take a walk in the morning or do some sort of stretching and don't want anything too heavy, this would be perfect. I did add a few ice cubes because I like it very cold, but those would be optional.
