Orange Immunity Bowl
Orange Immunity Bowl
These orange immunity bowls are a great way to get a good breakfast to start your day. This recipe is really as simple as blending up a couple of oranges with some of your favorite frozen fruit plus some Greek yogurt. Topped with orange zest, toasted pumpkin seeds, granola, dried cranberries and some dried apricots. This recipe is full of all things good for you.

Any Fruit You Choose
I always use mandarin oranges for this recipe but I mix up the frozen fruit that I use in this. I usually buy a bag of whatever frozen fruit is on sale. The fruit that is my favorite in this recipe is the tropical mix which always has a lot of pineapple. I like the way the pineapple combines with the orange for the flavor. I use the fruit frozen so that it makes a nice icy blend to the base of these Orange Immunity Bowls.
Toppings Are Optional
I have always used a vanilla almond granola mix on these bowls. I like the vanilla combined with the orange flavor. Kind of like a nutritious creamsicle LOL. I also add the finely diced, dried cranberry and apricot for some chewy, sweet texture. These twp fruits also pair really well with the orange flavor.
- 4 Mandarin Oranges
- 1 .5 cups of Greek yogurt
- 1 tablespoon of honey
- 1 cup of your favorite frozen fruit blend
- 1/2 cup of store bought granola
- 8 dried apricots
- 2 tablespoons of dried cranberries
- 2 tablespoons of toasted pumpkin seeds
- *toppings are optional you can swap them for your favorite ones
- Peel your oranges and remove as much of the pith (white soft stuff) as you can. I save part of a peel to use for zest to top the bowl.
- Add your oranges, the frozen fruit of your choice, the Greek yogurt and 1 tablespoon of honey to a blender and blend until smooth. The mixture may be on the "soupy' side and that is ok because you eat this with a spoon.
- Finely mince your apricots and dried cranberries.
- Be sure to break up the granola into smaller, bite sized pieces.
- Add the yogurt mixture to two bowls, then top with the granola, dried fruit, pumpkin seeds. Drizzle the remaining tablepoon of the honey on the top of both bowls. If you have a zester, carefully zest a little of the orange peel on the top of each bowl.
- *optional, you can add a sprinkle of cinnamon across the top as well.
