Orange Julius Smoothie

I love the idea of quick things for breakfast or snack. Most mornings I have just enough time to drink a cup of coffee before getting ready and rushing out the door. I wish I could start the day with a giant bowl of oatmeal covered in honey and nuts or a huge plate of piping hot pancakes... But even if I try, that doesn't seem to happen.

These delicious smoothies take just as much time to make a cup of coffee and fill you up in the mornings. Plus, they taste very similar to the popular Orange Julius.

You Will Need:
(makes 4-8 ounce glasses)
1 1/2 cups fresh squeezed orange juice
1/2 cup milk (your choice of whole, low fat, almond, soy, etc)
6 ounces Greek vanilla yogurt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 Tablespoon honey or granulated sugar
1 cup ice

1. Place all of the ingredients in your blender and blend until smooth and combined. Pour into a tall glass and garnish with an orange wedge if you so desire.

See, easy-peasy and so delicious! I love the cut of the fresh squeezed orange juice and the creamy milk! Plus the protein in the Greek yogurt is a great filler! Enjoy!
