Description

I can’t find the inspiration for this smoothie. I stumbled across it online and forgot to bookmark it, so now it’s lost forever in the ether. I remember what struck me was the absence of yogurt. Most smoothies these days seem to call for it, but the recipe I found called for half and half. Scandalous! Having lost track of the recipe, I played around a few times with a combination of fresh orange segments, lemon juice, honey, and half & half finally settling on this final version here. I prefer a thinner smoothie because I hate a thick one that moves slowly down the glass only to suddenly speed up and smack me in the face, so consider that when you make it. Like most recipes, it’s open to changes so feel free to tweak it and make it your own.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup ice
  • 1 teaspoon orange zest
  • 1 navel orange, peeled and broken into segments
  • 1/3 cup half and half (see note)
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • Juice from ¼ of a lemon

Instructions

  1. Place the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Serve cold.

Notes

  • I’ve made this several times with half and half, but whole milk and almond milk work well, too. It all depends on how decadent you want your smoothie.
