Copycat Orange Julius Smoothie Using Fresh Ingredients

Recently, I received some products from MyProtein to review and share with you all.  As always, my opinions are 100% my own. IMG_8630edit

My family and I have really been enjoying quite a few products from MyProtein to help maintain a healthy lifestyle, add protein and calories to our kids’ diets and meal replacements for the adults.  The protein bar and powder flavors are actually good (which, is hard to come by with protein supplements, let’s be honest).  If you are like me, usually the only flavors even worth trying to choke down are chocolate flavors but with MyProtein Chox we took a risk and got the Lemon Crunch and they were fantastic.

The stand out product for me was the Instant Oats.  It isn’t want you are thinking.  It’s not instant oatmeal.  It is a finely ground powder that you can mix with protein powders in shakes or other recipes.  It’s got many uses, including upping calorie intake which can help keep you feel fuller longer or as a meal replacement.

I have been buying my product in bulk lately at a great price and ended up with like 60 oranges (if you follow on Instagram or Twitter  you have probably seen lots of bulk produce pictures!).  I came up with this delicious recipe and then had a light bulb moment.  I adding the Instant Oats from MyProtein and it became a meal replacement for me, more calories for my picky eaters and and overall yummy treat!
