This week I’m participating in the United Way Hunger Action Week. I made myself this Orange Julius inspired smoothie modified to what I had on hand with only a few ingredients for lunch. Smoothies make a great snack or meal replacement and can be made in just a few minutes. The nice thing about smoothies is this.. when you blend drinks with ice the volume of the liquids expands so your drink lasts longer. Enjoy.
Orange Julius Inspired Smoothie
5-6 ice cubes
1 cup orange juice
1 egg white or powdered equivalent
3 tablespoons sugar (or sugar substitute equivalent) – less or more depending on sweetness preference
*optional* 2 tablespoons of vanilla yogurt
*optional * 1 tablespoon protein powder
Directions: Blend everything in a blender for 30-45 seconds. Pour into a glass. Enjoy!
