Remember Orange Julius? The best orange milkshake found at the mall? Apparently the chain still exists, but I haven’t seen one in years, and I’m sure they are terribly unhealthy. Well, I got my fix while in Montreal at Aux Vivres. Ever since I had their healthier ‘Le Creamsicle’ smoothie, I have been trying to recreate it. I used avocado for thickness and left out the dates because I think there’s plenty of sweetness in the fruit juice. It is delicious as a smoothie, or poured into a bowl with toppings added. My latest find is this grain free granola, which goes perfect on top!
- ¼ cup orange juice
- ¼ cup carrot juice
- ½ avocado
- ¼ cup canned coconut milk
- Chop up ½ a ripe avocado.
- Place in a blender with the liquids and blend until smooth.
- Drink as a smoothie, or pour into a bowl and top with granola.
Trader Joe's sells small bottles of carrot juice if you don't have a juicer or don't want to make your own.
