Fresh and Healthy Orange Julius

IMG_4545

Every Christmas morning {and just about every day leading up to Christmas} we make our favorite, delicious, Healthy Orange Julius recipe with the oranges that Santa leaves in our stockings. This drink is not only GF, but dairy free as well!

This recipe is super fast and simple; you only need a few ingredients + a blender. The main ingredient is oranges, of course. Whilst citrus is in season, we buy it by the box full, and keep it stored in our cold storage room in the basement. These oranges will mostly be used to make fresh squeezed OJ or our favorite Orange Julius!

For the recipe you will need;

Oranges, vanilla extract, dates, unsweetened vanilla almond milk, & some ice.

You can peel your oranges, but I prefer to simply slice the peels off.

Healthy Orange Julius

Makes 2-4 servings

2 oranges, peels removed
2 dates, pitted
8 oz unsweetened vanilla almond milk {I prefer this brand}
splash of vanilla extract
a couple handfuls of ice

Pour 8 oz of almond milk into a high powered blender. Slice peels off oranges, add to blender along with all other ingredients. Blend until smooth and creamy. Add more ice if you prefer it thicker. Sometimes I’ll add some extra fresh squeezed orange juice if it needs to have more orange flavor.
Pour into 2 large glasses and enjoy.
