Liquid Diet: Part 1

Am I on one? Nope. (even though I just had jaw bone surgery #2 in a week yesterday…)

Do I recommend them? No way.

But are these drinks & smoothies still delicious? Yep!

Between my juicer and my mom’s new Nija blender, we have been hard at work this week. Or I guess the machines have been! It all started when my sister brought over a bag full of oranges from her co-op. She wanted some fresh OJ to take home to her husband.


Out of 14 oranges we filled this mason jar and were also able to fill a few cups for ourselves to try out. Look at that color! Hello orange julius! But with straight up oranges.


I heard my brother in law chugged the whole thing when my sister got home. And was then on a vitamin-C high the rest of the night. Yes, it can happen. It sure tasted good!

Next up was another variety of an Orange Julius. Nothing is better than oranges at Christmas time, right?

For this, all you need is some milk, 2 or 3 oranges, half a banana, and some ice cubes.


Pop those ingredients in your blender, and blend until smooth. So easy. So delicious.


(please ignore my brother’s foot so delicately placed by the blender on the counter…)



He was a fan!

More juice and smoothies comin’ at ya on Friday!
