Keep Those Seasonal Sniffles Away

Although summer is long gone, and winter appears to loom overhead like a comic book speech bubble, smoothies are one chilly treat that never go out of season. There are plenty of smoothie recipes out there, but my favorite for the season is the Orange Julius, loaded with vitamin C to keep those seasonal sniffles away. What’s even better, this smoothie isn’t expensive and can be made with five ingredients in a matter of minutes. Perfect if you’re the typical high school student on the go.

For this recipe, you will need 3-4 freshly peeled oranges. You can also add a clementine or two for dimensional taste. The next ingredient is what will make this smoothie so delightfully smooth. Milk. Although skim is optional, I find the smoothie to taste better when using a thicker variety of milk. Next, add 1-2 tablespoons of honey, and 1-2 teaspoons of vanilla extract. Lastly, add the ice and blend until you reach the desired consistency. Serve immediately and enjoy.

This smoothie is a great way to start off your morning, whether you’re off to school or work, or spending the day inside. Give it a try, and let me know what you think.
