6 medium sized oranges, peeled
1 can (13.5 oz) refrigerated coconut milk
2 Tablespoons orange zest, (from 1–2 oranges)
1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
water, orange, or apple juice as needed if it’s too thick
Add all the ingredients for the smoothie in the order listed to the blender.
Blend, starting on low and working your way up to high speed, until the mixture is completely smooth.
Serve immediately for the best flavor, or refrigerate up to 2 days in a sealed container.
To make 2 servings of this smoothie, use 1/2 cup + 1/3 cup canned coconut milk and halve the rest of the ingredients.
Be sure to zest your oranges before you juice them.
I call for refrigerated coconut milk so that the smoothie stays nice and cold. Even better is to freeze the coconut milk in ice cube trays for a frostier smoothie!
If your oranges are really lackluster, try adding a bit of orange juice concentrate to amp up the flavor.
