Rated 5 out of 5 by Betsy G from Perfect Start to the Day Using the 750 made making this juice recipe a cinch. I agree that the extra sugar isn't necessary if the oranges are relatively fresh; if they have started to turn the flavor will benefit from the extra touch. I've elected to peel my oranges when I buy them and place the individuals in ziploc bags in the freezer. In the morning I can toss one in Vitamix with a little water and a splash of vanilla (I've also occasionally tossed in a slice of fresh ginger) and blend a single serving without having to mess with the ice cubes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by cogdog from Great Way to Use a Box of Meh Oranges My wife got a full box of oranges from school and they were.. not the most tasty ones to eat, but they had good juice. I found the vanilla and sweetener (I used splenda) helped with these ones which did not have great flavor. I loathe peeling; I slice them in quarters and can pretty quickly bend back the skin to get to the orange part. Since I had so many I did a bigger batch: * 10 medium sized oranges * 1 1/2 cup water * 1 teaspoon vanilla * 2 Tbsp Splenda Thanks

Rated 5 out of 5 by 3doglovr from Delish! I used a Vitamix 7500 and this was delicious! Next time I'll omit the sugar or cut it in half. no pulp whatsoever! Husband thought it was too frothy but if I cut the blending time it will probably be more juice-like.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Magoo from Nice juice Used the Pro Series 750. Made about 2 cups of juice. No need for sugar. If using the 750 only need to mix on 10 for about 30 seconds to get the juice with the ingredients and amount shown. Real good juice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Renut from Orange Julius Re-mix We tried this recipe and it turned out tasting like a refreshing Orange Julius! We exchanged the water for Almond Milk, and the sugar can also be substituted with honey or agave syrup. It is so good, we've made it four days in a row!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Primo from Vitamix is a Great Investment- Excellent Product. I love it, Vitamix is one of my best investments. I bought the 7500 which sat in the box until a friend came over to show me how simple it is to use. This product is perfect for healthy living and active lifestyles. I love having access to online recipes and reading comments from other Vitamix owners.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lomand from Great recipe plus ideas! Just read through the comment section. Is this recipe the one that people are commenting on? People keep mentioning the sugar, and one person said they left out the ginger...OK, the dates are a source of sugar, but I am left wondering why they would mention sugar instead of dates. Despite that I will try this as written. Love the comment about how to quarter the orange and just bend the peel back to release the segment as well as the freezer idea to prevent having to throw out older oranges that are getting on. Thanks!
