Orange Dream Smoothie

One of the best parts of January is the amazing selections of oranges! When it’s cold and dreary outside this is a great way to brighten up your day!

Ok so I don’t know about you but I love oranges this time of year. When it’s so cold outside having that sweet and tart orange just is one of the best ways to brighten up your day.

Now with this recipe, I went with a tangelo, mostly because I love them so much, but you could use any type of orange that you love. Maybe a blood orange, imagine how pretty that would be!

This is also my take on that old favourite the Orange Julius, but with fresh oranges and greek yoghurt, this is one that you can enjoy for breakfast without any guilt.

So run to your closest grocery store and stock up on all the oranges, you won’t be disappointed.
