Sunshine Julius

From our friends at Alkame Co.: 

I couldn’t let the end of citrus season pass without sharing this Sunshine Julius recipe with you all. It’s such a refreshing and satisfying drink. Plus, the sun has been shining and the days have been warming up around here—making cold drinks a little more appealing.

If you want something super quick and with one less dish, skip the blender and make this a shaken drink. I actually prepare it this way often. It’s my go to after a long ski in the winter time!



-6 oz milk of choice (for extra creaminess, use coconut milk or cream for an ounce or two of this)

-1 tsp Sunshine Golden Milk

-2 oz fresh squeezed orange juice

-1/4 tsp lightly packed orange zest

-1/4 tsp maple syrup or honey

-1/4 tsp vanilla extract

-pinch of sea salt

-generous pinch of cardamom powder

~1/2 cup of ice


Add all ingredients to a blender and blend until no ice chunks remain. Depending on your blender, you may need a small one (like a Bullet or Ninja) if you’re doing just one serving. If you’re making this for a friend, sweetie or the whole family it’s easy to make this in a big batch and share, too! And, note, this recipe is definitely kid friendly.
