1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
1/8 teaspoon celery seeds

Minus the sugary sweetness of the store bought frozen treat, this really does taste like orange & peach sherbet. I use a Vita Mix for mine, which is powerful enough to handle this super thick smoothie. If you’re using an ordinary blender, you will probably need to add another orange or two.

When I make this smoothie with organic oranges, I often add a half inch piece of the rind for extra flavor and vitamin C complex. Try peeling your oranges with a knife so you can leave on some of the nutritious white pith too. The carrot is added for color and beta carotene, but you can’t taste it.

2 oranges, peeled, seeds removed
1 cup frozen peaches
1 frozen banana, broken into chunks
1 small piece orange rind (optional)
1/2 carrot (optional)
