PIN IT!

Oh gosh, this flavor takes me way back. I remember the first Orange Julius I ever had. I was in 7th grade and went to a new mall with my friends. One wet frothy taste and I was in love! But now that we’re living in a world full of gmo’s, unhealthy sugar, and even dairy loaded with hormones, antibiotics, and even pasteurized at such high levels that no nutrients remain, those delightfully delicious orange drinks aren’t exactly sharing the same love and affection that we would wish.

ORANGE JULIUS KNOCKOFF

INGREDIENTS

1 1/2 cups organic coconut or organic almond milk
1 full orange, or 2 cuties, peeled (the juicier the oranges the better)
1 tsp. organic apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon Greens superfood
1/2 scoop Raw Organic Vanilla Protein Powder
1 tablespoon organic extra virgin olive oil
1/2 banana
1 teaspoon organic flax seeds
2 tablespoons raw honey, organic maple syrup, or pure stevia powder
8 cubes ice

DIRECTIONS

Place all ingredients in a blender and blend 1-2 minutes until smooth and creamy. I usually like to start my day by adding the probiotic and fiber. But if you’ve had them already in your day, you can leave them out.

A little note on the stevia–we recommend avoiding all stevia that is white or trademarked, as it is not natural. The one we’ve linked to above is one that we believe to be pure, and not processed.

This smoothie recipe constitutes 1 complete meal replacement–woohoo!! 🙂

This Grain-free Frosted Banana Bars Recipe is so delicious, especially when topped with our Lemon Icing recipe, mmmm. We really hope you try it, if you haven’t yet. AND if you have, did you try it on something exciting? If so, please share!! Did you try it on your face? Did you try it on your cheeks? Did you try it on your neck? Or did you try it in your tummy? lol–ok, enough with the Dr. Seuss-isms, if that’s even a word. 🙂 The you really could do any of the above and have a wonderful skin softening spa treat!

And you’ll be surprised at how simple it is to make too! It came about because I had some overly ripe, ok black bananas, on my counter and wasn’t about to throw them away. I’ve made delicous banana bread, and amazing Caramel Sticky Buns with black bananas, so I decided to try something else that I could share it with you.
