The common Orange Julius is a mixture of ice, orange juice, sweetener, milk, powdered egg whites and vanilla flavouring. My healthy-fied version of that is a mixture of ice cream, orange juice, soy milk and pure vanilla.


3 large ripe bananas, frozen
2 oranges, frozen  
1/2 tsp pure vanilla powder
coconut blossom sugar to garnish (optional)

- a high-speed blender or food processor (NO NEED FOR AN ICE CREAM MAKER!)


First, squeeze your orange.

Break your pre-skinned, frozen bananas into pieces and add to your food processor. Add soy milk to get the blender going. Blend for a few seconds at a time, add the orange pieces, then add vanilla powder. Keep blending until creamy smooth.

Using a spatula or spoon, scrape your Orange ice cream into a big bowl - or as i did, serve in orange cups - and sprinkle with coconut blossom sugar or orange zest. Share with your favourite human around and enjoy!
