Healthy and Delicious: Orange Julius Smoothie

We like big breakfasts.  Although we nearly always have some kind of hot cereal for breakfast, somehow that doesn’t seem like quite enough to start the day off right.  Maybe that’s because we’re coming in from a five or six mile run, and going to work hard all day.  Often we have grapefruit with our cereal, but sometimes we have a smoothie.  This is one of our favorite recipes.

Orange Julius Smoothie

1 can frozen orange juice concentrate

2 cans water

1 16 ounce container cottage cheese, frozen (just throw it in the freezer the night before) or plain yogurt

2 bananas

1/3 cup sugar

1 Tablespoon vanilla extract

The cottage cheese stays a little grainy, so if this will bother you, use the plain yogurt.  You may need a little more sugar if you use plain yogurt.  Throw everything in the blender and blend away.  We share this amount amongst the 6 of us, but it’s a go-with not a main dish.   This tastes best served in pretty glasses.

Try it out.  I bet you’ll love this smoothie breakfast.  Hope you’re having a great weekend!
