Orange Raspberry-ade

This refreshing beverage is a spin on the traditional lemonade, featuring oranges and raspberry instead. It's not only delicious, but colorful too! What a particularly lovely treat for a ladies luncheon or bridal shower.

  • 1½ cup (350 ml) cold water
  • ½ orange, end trimmed and discarded, remainder cut into 4 equal slices [about ½ inch/ 33-mm] thick
  • ⅓ cup (35 g) frozen raspberries
  • ¼ cup (50 g) granulated sugar
  • 2 cups (260 g) ice cubes


  1. Place all ingredients into the Vitamix container in the order listed and secure the lid.
  2. Select the lowest setting. Start the machine, slowly increase to its highest speed, and blend for 30 seconds.
  3. Serve with extra ice if desired.


Oranges and raspberries make a great combination. Interestingly enough, frozen raspberries offer a darker red color and more flavor than fresh raspberries.
