Makes 2 Servings

Ingredients:

  • Banana: 1 (peeled and frozen)
  • Oranges: 2 (peeled, sliced, and deseeded)
  • Rolled Oats: 1⁄2 cup
  • Unsalted Sunflower Seeds: 1⁄4 cup
  • Unsweetened Plant-Based Milk: 1 cup
  • Optional: Fresh Ginger: 2 pinches

Directions:

  1. Prep the Night Before: Peel the banana and place it in a freezer-safe container. Freeze it overnight to ensure a creamy texture in your smoothie.
  2. Prepare the Oranges: Peel and slice the oranges, removing any seeds. For an extra burst of flavor, zest some of the orange skin before peeling and set it aside to add to the smoothie. If using, peel and prepare the fresh ginger.
  3. Blend the Oats: Add the rolled oats to the blender and blend until they are finely ground, creating a smooth base.
  4. Combine and Blend: To the blender, add the unsalted sunflower seeds, plant-based milk, orange slices, frozen banana, and the orange zest and fresh ginger (if using). Blend until the mixture is smooth.
  5. Adjust to Taste: If the smoothie is too thick, you can add water, ice, or additional milk to achieve your preferred consistency.

Enjoy this Orange Sunrise Smoothie as a bright and flavorful way to start your day, offering a perfect blend of fruits, grains, and seeds to keep you energized and satisfied.
