The secret ingredient that makes this taste wayyy better than just slushy orange juice is…….Frozen mango!
This was so fresh, light, and perfect for the morning.
Orange Julius Copycat Smoothie
Ingredients: (for 1 large, or 2 small)
1 cup ice
1 cup almond milk
1 cup frozen mango
2 clementines (or 1 orange)
1 cup orange yogurt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Blend the milk, ice, and frozen mango. (The mango being frozen is really important to the consistency.)
Then add in the yogurt and clementines/orange.
Blend and enjoy! Add another splash of milk if needed.
I looooved this! It wasn’t as tart as it would have been with strictly oranges. The mango and vanilla are both the touches this smoothie needs to go from being acidic to a gentle orange flavor. I gave the little one some but he wasn’t into it – I think it was too cold.
