Everytime my kids see that oranges are available for order in our CSA list, they immediately ask for homemade orange and cream smoothies.
There are kind of like those orange smoothies you can get in the mall, but made with real food ingredients.
They are also very simple to make, which I always appreciate.
Start with 1.5 cups of cream. Yes, cream. It’s full fat, yes. Not scary, especially if you are using raw cream.
Blend with 4 pasture raised egg yolks (super important that they are NOT store bought!) until the cream begins to thicken, about 30 seconds to a minute.
Next, add a couple handfuls of ice and a dash of vanilla, 1/4 cup real maple syrup and one cup of milk (another raw if possible moment) and blend until creamy, about 1-2 minutes.
Combine this mixture with equal parts of freshly juiced oranges (4-5 oranges) and serve over ice. Serves at least six. 🙂
This week my CSA has 10 pounds of naval oranges that are “a little on the ugly side” for $8.00. Perfect for juicing…or blending with full fat locally raised raw dairy products until you have created a blissful beverage.
Either way. 😉
