  • Summary

    The first “real” recipe I ever tried was for the famous orange Julius. It was back in home-ec class and the no-fail recipe instantly became my favorite. Now I’m giving traditional orange Julius an upgrade by combining the vitamins C and A, potassium, fiber, and carotenoids found in sweet potatoes with tangy orange. This is a winning combination, light and refreshing with pops of citrus, yet dense and filling because of the sweet potato. Enjoy this as a meal or post-workout drink, or split it with a loved one for a snack! It’s ridiculously good.

    Ingredients

    • 1 cup almond milk
    • 1 medium sweet potato, baked whole
    • 1 medium orange, peeled
    • 1 Medjool date, or more to taste, pitted
    • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
    • Dash of sea salt
    • Dash of ground cinnamon
    • Honey (optional)
