This Fresh Orange Smoothie Recipe is only 4-ingredients, making it a perfect choice for a quick-and-easy breakfast! Plus, it’s a healthy breakfast recipe packed with vitamin-C so not only does it taste great, it will also help you to keep feeling great! 

As of late, my go-to breakfast choice is this Fresh Orange Smoothie recipe. Sickness has been going around like crazy (every person in my family has had it at least once, some battling 2nd and 3rd times). This delicious Fresh Orange Smoothie Recipe is only four simple ingredients so it’s a winner in my book for just that fact! Not to mention it’s loaded with Vitamin C which we all can use a heavy dose of this time of year!

Ingredients Needed for Fresh Orange Smoothie Recipe

  • Oranges
  • Almond milk
  • Bananas
  • Greek yogurt
  • Ice (optional)

To avoid a second go-around of feeling like I’ve been hit by a freight train, I’ve been loading my diet with all sorts of immunity-boosting foods (if I’m not drinking a smoothie, you can bet I’m most definitely eating it in the form of this Berry-Licious Smoothie Bowl or this Berry Vanilla Smoothie Bowl).

You’d thick I’d be all rested up to beat the sickness since this year (or, I guess last year??) I took some time off around Christmas. The two Christmas seasons prior, I felt like it was a mad dash to keep up with the blog while also trying to cram in as much holiday fun as possible, and by the end of December, I was spent.

MY OTHER RECIPES

I live for Christmas and Christmas baking, and the past couple of Christmas seasons, I’ve felt like I’m only baking for the blog and not baking for friends and family. This past Christmas, I planned to schedule everything out in advance so I could take some time off, truly enjoy the season, and spend time doing what I love with friends and family.

Guys, it was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G.

So amazing, in fact, it has been a major struggle to get back into ‘work mode.’ It’s been such a struggle that I even shared a recipe last week and left out a major ingredient in the recipe (mind you, I proofread that recipe twice…so, obviously my mind is still on holiday time).

You can’t have Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal Cups without the banana.

Yeah, I left that out. #embarrassing

The silver lining of it all is that I found out from a few confused readers (“why is banana in the title if there’s no banana in the recipe?”) that the recipe does in fact work without the banana.

However, while it’s nice to know the recipe works fine without the banana, it really is supposed to be in the recipe because it adds flavor and texture (and it’s in the title).

Good one, Michelle.

As the days have passed, I’m getting back in the swing of things (and proofreading at least 3 times), including starting off each day with a healthy, nutritious breakfast like this Fresh Orange Smoothie Recipe!

Tools Helpful to Make Fresh Orange Smoothie Recipe!

If you wanted to add ice, you’d be more than welcome to. I find the smoothie is thick enough without ice, but if you prefer a really thick, extra-cold smoothie, feel free to add that ice.

All ingredients are blended until smooth, then it’s time to drink up!

Hello, sunshine. Breakfast has never tasted so refreshing!
