Last week I fell in love with a new smoothie recipe, Orange Cream Smoothies! I found this recipe in Jessica Fisher’s latest cookbook, “Best 100 Juices for Kids.”
I don’t know about your kids but mine LOVE juice. The problem? We hardly ever keep juice on hand aside from orange juice because of all that unnecessary sugar. Jessica’s book has already proven to solve that problem for us with 100 simple juice recipes.
I decided to start with this Orange Cream Smoothie, basically it taste like a lighter version of an Orange Julius. I remember going to the mall as a kid sipping on one of those delicious treats. Now, I can make them at home and enjoy them with my kids. We made one batch of these Orange Cream Smoothies and within minutes they were gone.
I ended up making several more batches and freezing them so that we could enjoy them in the mornings on the way to school. I am a big fan of freezing large batches of smoothies, it just makes those busy mornings a little less hectic.
Another point I love about Jessica’s new book is that all of these recipes she had her kids help with, they were taste tested by kids, for kids. That means the kid ‘taste buds’ were used to approve these. My kids are much more likely to enjoy something another kid liked than something ‘mom’ says is good! It’s true, right?
Now, while you read her blog, enjoy sipping on one of her delicious Orange Cream Smoothies!
