Recipe Directions

  • 1. Get your orange zest off an orange before you peel it. The easiest way to get fresh orange zest is to simply use a clean orange peeler to shave a bit of orange peel off. Collect 1 tbsp's worth.
  • 2. Peel your oranges well using a knife. Cut off most of the white rind so that you just have nice, glistening oranges with very little white rind left.
  • 3. Add all ingredients to your high-speed blender.
  • 4. Blend well.
  • 5. Enjoy your raw orange smoothie!

The Rawtarian's Thoughts

By The Rawtarian

Raw orange smoothie recipe - I was craving a creamy orange smoothie today for some reason. Not sure why! So I put my thinking cap on about what would make this smoothie burst with orange flavour - while at the same time being super smooth and creamy. And here's what I came up with!

It's very easy to make, and the consistency is super creamy and orangy. Note: This is best made with a high-speed blender since oranges can be difficult to get to a smooth consistency in a standard blender due to their fibrous consistency.

Enjoy this raw orange smoothie recipe when you're craving a creamsicle! This recipe makes one serving -- perfect for a snack or dessert.

When I was a little girl my dad would bring us orange sticks after a long truck driving trip. They were such a treat! Well, I love your orange smoothie. I, too use frozen bananas and vanilla, but this time I added some raw cacao powder. It tastes very much like the orange sticks he brought us. Thanks for the recipe and the memories!

Wondering for this and other recipes that call for bananas I am allergic to bananas – severe hypoglycemic reaction to sugar alcohol.

What can I use in its place? I’m missing out on alot of great recipes.

Oh man that sucks Andie!

OK. The tough thing with a banana allergy is that you can't always replace bananas with the same thing because they are used for different purposes depending on the recipe.

In general bananas do two things:

1. Sweeten (perfectly ripe bananas are crazy sweet)

2. Add creaminess

3. Bulk up a sweet recipe

So for sweetening only you could sub with dates.

So for creaminess you could sub with avocado.

For bulk - not sure what to suggest in general. depends on the recipe!

FOR THIS RECIPE:

Add 1 avocado + 1/2 cup dates instead of the bananas.

Hope helpful! Bye for now Andie

PS: Oh no! I bet you can't eat dates, huh?? Try without the dates - it might not be as sweet.

What can you use as a sweetener I wonder?

Sounds yummy! How many servings does it make? Also, do you juice your own oranges or buy bottled juice?

Thanks.

Yum! I added a little almond milk, some vanilla, and a little stevia and my banana was frozen. It was a little orange-creamcicle-ish! Thanks for another good one!

This looks amazing! I have to admit, I'm a little confused though - why do you need an additional 1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons of OJ? Does this have to be fresh squeezed juice you collect from your juicer? Couldn't you just add in a few more slices of orange?

I am sure you could tweak it if you don't want to make the juice.

You can get it from a juicer or hand squeeze from one of those little glass dishes (that's what I use -- I don't have a big juicer)

I just made it that way to amp up the orange flavor without having to add too much fibrous material (full orange)
