I tend to get so hung up on making green smoothies that I often forget to explore other options. I especially never think to blend carrots in my Vitamix. But today was a new day!
Over the weekend, we tasted a drink at the Vitamix demo stand in Costco, and Zander liked it so much that he wound up drinking 4 samples. It reminded me of an Orange Julius, from back in the day when I drank those.
We had a surplus of oranges in our fridge this morning, and while I was juicing most of them, I decided to set aside a few to make this yummy drink.
It is so delicious, refreshing, and energizing–and it couldn’t be simpler to make! Here’s the recipe:
MORNING SUNSHINE SMOOTHIE:
*makes 2 large servings
3 juicy oranges (peeled)
3 medium-sized carrots (chopped into sixths)
1 large frozen banana
1 cup ice
Combine all ingredients in a high-speed blender until cold and frothy, then pour yourself a glass of liquid sunshine and enjoy!
