Healthy Orange Julius Smoothie

Goooood moooorningggggg!!!!!

Welcome to a Whisk Together Original!!!

I hope everyone is doing AWESOME!!!!  Here is a new simple and easy recipe that we all loved!  I had some extra oranges leftover and didn’t want to make an orange julius copycat recipe for breakfast.  Instead, I threw some of my kids’ favorite items into the blender and they LOVED it.   And I loved it because they got a healthy dose of real oranges, mango and vitamins.  Since going back to work full-time this year, mornings are a little bit different.  No more coming home to clean up or finish a task.  We have 3 breakfasts and 3 lunches to make!  So I listed some ways to get these smoothies into your morning routine.  They would also make a great snack!

Here are some ways to make the smoothie:

  1.  Just make it!
  2. Freeze the ingredients into baggies.  Allow to thaw while you get ready or microwave them for 30 seconds.  Then add to the blender!
  3. Put them in real orange julius cups and see if anyone notices the difference 🙂

I know smoothies are not a “winter” type thing.  But oranges are in season right now and Aldi has them at $3.99 for a huge bagful.  If you won’t use them in time – just peel them and freeze them!  Yes it will work in a smoothie.  I wouldn’t recommend eating them after being frozen, but in a blender they will be just fine.

Prep time
Total time
 
:
Serves: 2 large smoothies
Ingredients
  • 2 large oranges
  • 1 cup almond milk (I used vanilla unsweetened)
  • 1 cup mango, frozen or fresh
  • 3 packets of Stevia
  • 2 tsp. powdered egg whites (I use this to make royal icing; it is optional)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup crushed ice
Instructions
  1. Wash the outside of the oranges with soap and water. Peel the oranges and place the segments in the blender.
  2. Keep the peel! Place a 1" square of the orange peel into the blender.
  3. Place the rest of the ingredients into the blender in the order given. If you are using large frozen chunks of mango, I usually microwave this for 30 seconds in order to give the blender a break.
  4. Blend until smooth.
  5. Enjoy!
