Fresh Orange Julius Smoothie 

Right now is a great time to boost your vitamin C intake.  Not only does it taste good, but it’s also an incredibly important immunity booster.

I’m not even sure if you can buy an Orange Julius smoothie at the mall anymore, however, you can make one at home.  With 5 simple ingredients, you can blend away the magical orange drink you may recall from your youth.

This is a an easy recipe that the kids can help with.  They can wash the oranges, measure the ingredients, place the peeled oranges in the blender and push the blend button to watch the ingredients combine to the resulting frothy deliciousness.  Those are important skills – math, patience, and the essentials of working in a kitchen.

While the original Orange Julius was likely made with frozen orange juice concentrate (at least that’s how we made it when I was a kid), this recipe is so much better because you use fresh oranges which lightens up the sugar and is a more natural beverage.

Take advantage of a great sale on large navel oranges at Safeway – just $.25/lb. with a Just for U Digital Coupon this weekend only through Sunday, March 30th and make this fresh orange smoothie to boost immunity and take a moment to reminisce your childhood memories with your own kids.
