When I feel like being a little more polite and want to impress Fred, the ultimate smoothie maker, I whip up this delicious, bright tasting concoction. My mom actually turned me on to my first Orange Julius in my late teens. It wasn't vegan, but it was good. So here is my updated vegan version. It is quick and easy and oh so tasty! It only takes a few minutes to whip it up in the blender. Enjoy.
3 large naval oranges cut into 6 pieces and peeled
1 small banana
1/2 cup almond milk (you can use sweetened or unsweetened depending on your taste)
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups ice cubes
Throw all of the ingredients into the blender and blend until smooth. Garnish with orange slice (optional)
