Orange Delight

This delicious shake reminds me of an Orange Julius, but this version is much healthier with no refined sugars or artificial flavors.  It is best made with freshly squeezed orange juice but store bought is fine too.  You can use a regular or high speed blender for this recipe.

2 cups orange juice
1 cup plain yogurt
1/4 cup honey
2 cups ice cubes
1 Tablespoon vanilla

Combine juice, yogurt, honey, ice, and vanilla in blender.

Process until slushy.



  1. Thank you for this recipe. I was just thinking of pulling out my old one and trying to make it with no white sugar. You have done the work for me.


  2. Okay, Emily,
    what is the blender
    that you are using??
    This looks yummy.
    I bet it's really
    amazing with fresh
    oj. Do you have a
    juicer, as well??

  3. The best drink of all time. I actually crave the healthy orange smoothie. When I drink it, I do think of Orange Julius and being a kid again.
    Thank you for sharing.

  4. Suzanne, I have a Breville blender that I used for this recipe. I also have a Vitamix and a juicer too! I am a sucker for the small kitchen appliances:)!
