Orange & Vanilla Green Smoothie: The Real Orange Julius

  • Yield: 2 1x

Description

My version of the Orange Julius is the real deal: real orange, real vanilla and a healthy pile of spinach to help you get your daily dose of phytonutrients. No funky powder.


Ingredients

Scale
  • A big handful of green or red grapes
  • 2 oranges, peeled and quartered
  • 1 apple, quartered and cored (I used a Gala; a frozen banana would be good, too)
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp. orange extract
  • zest of an orange
  • 3 big handfuls of baby spinach

Instructions

  1. Place the ingredients in a good blender or Vitamix in the order shown. If using a Vitamix, start on Variable 1 and turn to 10 (of if you are a Spinal Tap fan, crank it to 11 to get that extra little oomph) and then flip the switch up to High. Let it process for 30-45 seconds. Serve pronto.
