I wanted to share the kids’ new favorite smoothie that we whipped up this morning for breakfast with a whole wheat tortilla, banana, nut butter roll on the side.
I’ve seen a few different orange “julius” or “creamsicle” versions around, but many of them use orange concentrate in them, of which I am not a big fan. It’s highly processed and full of sugar.
This one has whole, fresh ingredients and the kids LOVE it!
Here’s what you need:
2 large oranges peeled and separated into wedges(leave as much pith on the orange as possible because the pith has lots of wonderful nutrients)
1 large spoonful of raw almond butter
1 large frozen banana cut in small pieces (we keep a zip-loc bag with frozen banana pieces in the freezer at all times)
1 cup milk of choice (we use almond milk)
agave nectar to taste (or other sweetener of choice) It doesn’t need much, the bananas and oranges provide a good amount of sweetness.
1 handful of ice
Throw everything into a blender until well blended and creamy. Makes 2-3 servings
