Orange Juice Plus

Give fresh orange juice an unexpected twist with a splash of vanilla extract.


  • ¼ cup (60 ml) water
  • 2 oranges, peeled
  • ¾ cup (95 g) ice cubes
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 Tablespoon granulated sugar


  1. Place all ingredients into the Vitamix container in the order listed and secure lid.
  2. Select Variable 1.
  3. Turn machine on and slowly increase speed to Variable 10, then to High.
  4. Blend for 1 minute or until desired consistency is reached. Serve immediately.


Try plain orange juice, by omitting the vanilla and sweetener. For recipe variation, add 1/2 cup (75 g) of fresh pineapple with juice.
