Oranges are a great healthy food that are full of vitamin C and antioxidants.

People most often drink orange juice or eat oranges whole. This recipe for Vitamix Orange Juice combines both of those methods into one healthy blended drink.

One of the benefits of blending the orange instead of juicing it is that you will consume the fiber and some of the pith of the orange. The pith is the white part that is underneath the skin, and orange pith is healthy too!

Why Blended Orange Juice?

  • For a delicious treat, try this recipe for blended orange juice! You’ll get more of the vitamins and nutrition and waste less of the orange than just juicing the oranges.
  • This recipe is perfect for breakfast, snack, or brunch. It tastes great and goes well with almost any breakfast food.
  • Skip wasting most of your orange by making plain orange juice in a Vitamix blender or another brand of high-speed blender. This whole orange juice tastes like a simple Orange Julius, but without any added sugar or sweeteners.

Ingredients

ingredients for making whole blended orange juice.

You’ll need peeled whole oranges for this recipe. Make sure your oranges are sweet, ripe, and fresh. Remove the orange part of the peel, but you can leave on the white part (the pith).

You can use whatever types of oranges you like, including Naval oranges, Cara Cara oranges, blood oranges, or even tangerines. You can even use other types of citrus fruits too, including grapefruits.

You’ll also need some water to help blend the whole oranges. If your tap water tastes chlorinated, be sure to use filtered water.

Recipe Steps

Step One

Wash and peel your oranges, cutting away the orange part and leaving at least some of the white part.

I also highly recommend using a high speed blender like a Vitamix.

And, as always, please check the recipe card at the end of this post for the exact ingredients and measurements for this orange juice recipe.

Step Two

Add about 1/4 to 1/2 cup of water to the Vitamix blender pitcher.

Step Three

Blend your ingredients on the highest speed for about 30 seconds, or until the blended orange juice is completely smooth.

Step Four

Once you’ve blended your healthy juice, then you can serve it right out of the blender.

This fresh orange juice smoothie is best served immediately, as it can tend to turn bitter as it sits.

Enjoy the health benefits and the flavor of this delicious juice at any time of day.

Whole Orange Juice FAQs

I don’t have a Vitamix. Can I make this in a regular blender?

Yes, you can! It may not be as smooth, but it will still be delicious.

Do I need to pick out the seeds?

You can pick out some of the seeds if your oranges have a lot of seeds, but you don’t have to.

Can I blend my oranges with the peel on?

I do not recommend blending the oranges with the peel as your juice will be very bitter. Remove most of the peel but you can leave on the white part under the peel (the pith).

Do I need to strain the juice?

No, that is the point of this recipe. But, if you have picky eaters or you just prefer a juice texture as opposed to a thin smoothie texture, you can strain the juice through a nut milk bag or fine mesh strainer.
