There’s nothing better than a glass of fresh squeezed orange juice from the market – and while you can take home a bottle of juice, at some point I need something a little bit more. This orange smoothie incorporates the flavor and health benefits of oranges while introducing some other nutrients too. Feel free to add a scoop or two of your favorite protein powder for an added boost.
- 1 C. orange juice
- ½ C. skim milk (you can also substitute almond milk)
- ½ banana
- ½ C. rolled oats (blend in a food processor or blender – I like to do larger batches beforehand and have it ready to use)
- 8 oz. plain Greek yogurt
Blend all ingredients in a blender or food processor and serve immediately.
