Healthy Homemade Vegan Orange Julius

Creamy, frosty and just a wee bit zippy, this healthy vegan Orange Julius is one of my favourite summertime treats. Made with fruit and juice and just a touch of maple syrup, it has about a third of the sugar of the original drink and WAY more nutrition!

  • 1 cup unsweetened cashew milk
  • ½ navel orange skin on, cut into quarters
  • 1-2 tablespoons pure maple syrup to taste, optional
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons orange-flavoured flax oil optional, for flavour and omega 3s

Notes

I highly recommend freezing an ice cube tray or two of orange juice and transferring the cubes to a freezer bag so you have them on hand! Ditto frozen bananas. That way you are ready whenever a healthy craving strikes.
