Vegan “Orange Julius” Smoothie

Author - Serena Wolf
Yields: 2 smoothies


  • 2 ripe bananas frozen (Yes, you an use room temp ’nanas in a pinch, but then you’ll have to add more ice…)
  • 1 teaspoon fresh orange zest This is the zest from about ½ an orange.
  • cups fresh squeezed orange juice This is the juice from about 2-3 oranges, depending on their size.
  • ¾ cup unsweetened almond milk
  • ¾ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 4-6 ice cubes
  • 1 tablespoon agave optional (I don’t think this smoothie needs it, but if you’re into things extra sweet, go for it.)


  • Peel your bananas, place them in a Ziploc bag and freeze overnight.
  • Juice your oranges. You can do this using a fancy juicer, citrus press, or by hand. (Relax, you’ll only need to juice 3 at most.)
  • Place the frozen bananas, orange zest, orange juice, almond milk, vanilla extract, and ice in a blender or food processor and puree until smooth. (Add agave to sweeten if necessary.)
  • Pour into two glasses and garnish with orange slices if you’re feeling fancy.
