Healthy Orange Julius

Good morning everyone and happy Friday!  We’ve made it through another week!  The weather has been sunny and warm and my mom and I have been planting away herbs and fresh greens in the garden.  Spring is going to be wonderful this year- I just hope it stays for a while before summer starts!

When we were planting out in the sun I wanted to make something frosty and delicious.  This is actually a recipe that has been in the back of my head for probably half a year or more now and I’ve just never gotten around to making it.

Now you may be wondering why this is green. I had been somewhat surprised myself, actually, seeing as it doesn’t have any “greens” in it. Recently I started trying some of Vega’s Vega One Nutritional Shakes. I ordered the Vanilla Chai but was given samples for a few of their other flavors. For this shake I decided to try out “French Vanilla” which turned out to be green oddly enough which changed the color of my smoothie! It was a surprise but it sure did taste good!

Healthy Orange Julius -Serves 1-2

1 Scoop Vanilla Protein (such as Vega One or Vega Sport)

2 Large Navel Oranges

1 1/2 Cups Almond Milk

Stevia (or other sweetener to taste)

Peel oranges, chop and place them in a bowl in the freezer.  Allow them to freeze for several hours (I froze them overnight), then place in a blender with the rest of the ingredients.  Blend away!  You may need to add more almond milk or some water if it is too thick.

Now don’t you feel good?
