Healthy Orange Julius
Lately I have been craving citrus which is very rare for me. I’ve never been a huge fan of orange juice but thats what the my body has been craving lately along with a few other random things like popcorn, burritos and mac & cheese.
The idea of an Orange Julius sounded amazing to me a few weeks ago but I didn’t want to add the raw egg or all the added sugar that is usually in the smoothie. I created this super healthy plant based smoothie that tastes just like the traditional Orange Julius. Let me know what you think of it. It definitely hit the spot for me!
2 cups of fresh squeezed orange juice (usually about 4-5 oranges)
1 tsp of orange zest
1 cup almond milk
1 T vanilla extract
5-6 ice cubes (depending on the thickness you want)
1 t agave nectar or maple syrup (optional for extra sweetness)
Makes 2 large smoothies
