ORANGE JULIUS SMOOTHIE
2 oranges peeled
1 banana large, peeled, quartered & frozen
1/4-1/2 cup almond milk or sub coconut milk
15 large ice cubes
20 grams whey protein isolate optional*
2 teaspoons vanilla
1. For a thick smoothie, be sure your banana is completely frozen prior to making a smoothie. I also only use 1/4 cup of liquid to keep things on the thicker side.
2. Add peeled oranges, frozen banana, ice cubes, your choice of milk (can sub orange juice for a sweeter smoothie), optional protein powder, and vanilla to a blender. This works best in a high speed blender, but can be made in a good quality standard blender.
3. Blend until the oranges are completely smoothie and the smoothie is thick and creamy. Top with a dollop of yogurt or coconut cream, if desired.
