Okay you guys, what’s up? It is a beautiful day here in Austin, Texas. The weather finally got below 90 degrees and we are all rejoicing.
Today I’m going to show you how to make an Orange Julius kale smoothie recipe. This one’s inspired by my childhood – my mom used to make orange juliuses for my sister and I when I was a kid – and I always loved it and looked forward to it.
So basically we’re just taking an orange julius – which is orange juice, an egg, and a drop or two of vanilla extract – and we’re adding kale (of course), and I’m gonna add a little banana too, just because I like it. But you don’t have to. It’s optional.
So, let’s get started! First thing we’re gonna do is put this egg in here. I like to crack the egg into a bowl so we can make sure we don’t have any eggshell fragments in there first. No fragments – lookin’ good. That goes in first.
Then we’re gonna put a couple of drops of vanilla extract in here. You can just use the cap to measure. Drop! It really takes very little – that stuff is concentrated.
Okay, now we’re gonna put the banana in here. Again this is optional, but I just feel like it gives it a little more body, texturally.
And then we’re gonna put in – let’s start with a cup of orange juice – see how it goes. Yeah I think a cup will be JUST about right.
[humming] One cup of orange juice… If you’re making this for more people, you might wanna do two cups.
Let’s just give that a little blend, and see what that looks like.
So right there, you’ve basically got an orange julius. We’re just gonna add kale to it, to make it super duper healthy, even thought it’s already pretty healthy.
This is a HUGE piece of kale we’ve got today, so I’m only putting in one leaf. Tear it into chunks.
Alright. Now, the only thing left to do, is pour it into a glass and drink this bad boy. I can’t believe I just said “bad boy.”
Alright! Cheers, y’all. Let’s see what this tastes like. Mmmm – MMH! Memories of my childhood. Delicious.
So: Orange Julius Kale Smoothie Recipe. Go for it.
