Healthier Copycat Orange Julius Smoothie

Smoothies are supposed to be yummy and refreshing, but most of all, smoothies are supposed to be somewhat healthy, right? At least that is what I think of when I hear the term "smoothie." However, not all smoothie drinks are created equal! Did you know that a small sized Orange Julius smoothie packs around 400 calories-not to mention 54 grams of SUGAR. How about a healthier option that you can enjoy without jeopardizing your waistline?

Here is my recipe for a healthier copycat version of this popular summer drink:

  • 1/2 an orange, peeled
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • ⅓ cup vanilla almond milk
  • 2 tbsp vanilla greek yogurt
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 tbsp honey
  • 1½ cups ice cubes

  1. Blend all ingredients in a blender until smooth.
  2. Sip the sweetness!
