    This is so good! Just needed a fresh pick-me up on this cold winter day and it hit the spot! I added turmeric, banana, and ground flax seed. Will be making again! Thanks!

    Where can I get the oils from?

    The description says “combination of orange and vanilla” however, there is no vanilla listed in the ingredients. How much should be used?

      Hi Heather,

      To add some vanilla flavor to the smoothie, you can use vanilla Greek yogurt instead of plain. Thanks for stopping by!

      Natural Orange Blossom Honey can be found online as well as at many grocery-chains across the nation.
