6 Orange Juice Smoothie Recipes to Super-Charge Your Day

Orange Juice Smoothie Recipes

Nothing beats a citrus smoothie for a convenient healthy vitamin boost. Try these refreshing orange juice smoothie recipes for a great start to your day.

Oranges pack a powerful nutritional citrus punch, with one orange giving you the recommended daily allowance (RDA) for citrus plus health-boosting flavonoids that protect us from bad boys like heart disease and cancer.

Flavonoids also offer a one-two punch when it comes to fighting inflammation, viruses, and bacteria. And thanks to vitamin A and B plus the calcium, fiber, and potassium they contain, they're a fabulous way to start your day.

And if you hook them up with other goodies in a tasty orange juice smoothie, you're really set.

To give you some ideas for this fabulous breakfast option, we've put together six of our favorite recipes with orange juice for you to try. Keep reading to see which pop out at you, then grab your blender and give your favorites a try.

1. Berry Blast

We love this one because the yogurt gives it that rich texture. Plus, it tastes delicious!

Add the following to your blender:

  • Fresh-squeezed orange juice -- 3/4 cup
  • Your choice/mix of fresh or frozen blueberries, raspberries, strawberries -- 6 to 7 ounces
  • Plain Greek or another yogurt -- 4 to 5 tbsp.
  • Ice -- a handful of cubes
  • Fresh mint -- a few leaves

Blend and enjoy!

2. Frothy Wonder

  • Fresh or frozen banana
  • Whole milk or the thickest of your favorite nondairy delight -- 1/4 cup
  • Ice -- a handful of cubes
  • Vanilla (extract) -- 1/4 tsp.

Blend and enjoy!

When we make our smoothies, we use oranges picked from our own fruit trees. Somehow they just taste so much better. Then again, growing citrus fruit trees is our thing. But it can be yours too. 

We like to use navel oranges as they give you so much sweet juice. If interested, check out these easy tips on growing navel oranges successfully.
