I remember as a kid making smoothies with my cousins, we always used the flavor packets, ice, and milk...not so healthy. This Orange Julius is dairy free and made with fresh fruit, plus a veggie for even more vitamins and minerals.
What you will need:
Fresh or frozen carrots
1/2 an orange
Milk of your choice
Mango or papaya
Blend everything well until totally smooth. Garnish with an orange wedge. Serves about 1 to 2 people.
[For 1-2] 1/2 cup orange juice
1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk or dairy free milk of your choice
1 small frozen banana
1/2 a fresh orange peeled
1/4 cup fresh or frozen chopped carrots
1/2 cup frozen papaya or mango
1 tsp vanilla extract
Measure out your frozen fruit and add to your blender.
Peel your orange and add half to the blender.
Then peel and chop your carrots into coins if using fresh. Add your carrot slices to the blender as well. I like to use frozen carrots to make my smoothie a thicker consistency.
Lastly add your vanilla, orange juice, and milk.
Blend until totally smooth.
Pour into a glass and garnish with an orange wedge or slice.
