I found myself with a dozen blood oranges. Although their flavour is very traditionally orange, their colour is is the novelty. I worked these oranges into several culinary preparations. The first, was a delicious tropical smoothie.
I started with some classic tropical flavours: banana, orange and pineapple. I added almond milk and a bit of ice.
Blend it up! Use a high-powered blender to ensure no chunks.
Garnish with sweeetened coconut and serve. A tasty and healthy way to experience the tropics - even if you're stuck in the dead of winter.
