Famous Florida Orange Smoothie

What is more quintessentially Florida than the orange?

At the lovely Sea Oats Motel in beautiful Destin Florida, we are all about celebrating the many things that make our state such an awesome place to live or visit.

One of those reasons, Florida’s temperate weather allows for an extended growing season, which means that there is always a lot of fresh produce to go along with our fresh, locally caught seafood.

Oranges find our sandy soil unusually appealing, making us the most famous location in the world for the citrus fruit.

These treats, both sweet and tart, make Florida Oranges a healthy treat for all to enjoy!  The Sea Oats Motel, the original beachfront vacation retreat in Destin, suggest an especially refreshing beverage.  Enjoy trying this tasty refreshment crafted in your fully equipped kitchen!


  • 2 cups Florida orange juice, freshly squeezed
  • 2 cups vanilla frozen low-fat yogurt
  • 8 ice cubes

Place the orange juice in the blender, with the frozen yogurt. Make sure the lid is on tight. Blend the orange juice and frozen yogurt on high speed until smooth. Add the ice cubes and continue to blend until smooth and creamy. Serve immediately. Pour leftovers into an ice cube tray and freeze for later use.
