{recipe} Super Easy 1-ingredient Orange Julius!

7 comments

in Raw Food Recipe

This is a super duper specific but also VERY easy and VERY budget-friendly way to make a refreshing, nutritious, and super satisfying Orange Julius. As it always seems to be with the best recipes, this was my original idea, but then my mom made it even better.

We are seriously a great duo (me and my momma), when it comes to easy and yummy. :-) Mostly because neither of us was ever a good “cook” but have embraced uncooking and health so fully! (And honestly, how could we not, when ALL of my health problems just *poof* went away after just days on 100% raw?!)

So, here you have it!

Orange JuliusSuper Easy 1-ingredient Orange Julius
Servings: 1-3 servings or about 24 ounces

EQUIPMENT
Measuring cups
Knife
Blender

INGREDIENTS
2 oranges (peeled, see instructions)
1/4 cup water
1 1/2 cups ice

INSTRUCTIONS
1. Peel the oranges, using a knife so that you can leave much of the pith (the white part) but very little of the peel.
2. After peeling, cut your oranges in half, then halve those quarters. This will give you a chance to remove any seeds, and if there are no seeds will cut it up into more blendable pieces anyways.
3. Add the water and ice to your blender, and BLEND. If you have a less “fancy” blender, you may need more water. For our Vita-Mix, this was perfect.

SPECIAL NOTES
To garnish: cut a thin strip of the WHOLE circle of an orange, and then cut from the bottom to the middle to make a slit and fit it over your glass.

The white pith/albedo right underneath the peel of an orange is FULL of bioflavonoids which help prevent bruising and keeps your skin healthy. Make sure to juice your oranges with the pith intact like I do!”

You can see that a LOT of the pith is still there, and we just cut up the orange first before tossing it into the blender.

So check out how little water there is in the Vita-Mix! BUT, as soon as it gets blending, you can see that it works out just fine!


I’VE ALREADY HEARD THIS COMPARED TO A MIMOSA (JUST ADD SOME SPARKLING WATER!) AND HAD SOME FABULOUS FEEDBACK… I HOPE YOU WILL GIVE IT A TRY! THERE’S SOMETHING AWESOME ABOUT SIMPLE INGREDIENTS MAKING A GREAT RECIPE! PLEEEEEASE LET US KNOW HOW IT GOES IF YOU DO TRY IT. :-)
