A healthy orange smoothie made with FRESH oranges, and your choice of milk and sweetener. Enjoy this fresh orange smoothie (“Orange Julius”) recipe today!
- 4 fresh oranges, peeled
- 2 cups ice
- 1/3 cup milk (your preference – regular, soy, coconut, etc.)
- 1–2 tablespoons honey (or agave or your desired sweetener), if needed
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, store-bought or homemade
- Combine all ingredients in a blender, and blend until smooth. Add more ice if you would like.
My favorite trick with this is to pop the peeled oranges in the freezer for 30 minutes prior to making these. So that they’re not thoroughly frozen, but definitely chilled and beginning to freeze. Then you can use slightly less ice. :)
