One of the healthiest changes you can make when it comes to eating better, is focusing on starting off the day right with healthy breakfast choices. And when I think of breakfast, I think of orange juice, but hey, who says you can only consume orange juice by drinking it? There are tons of other ways to get this vitamin-C rich liquid into our bodies—and making orange juice infused recipes is one delicious way to get your daily dose of OJ!
From Orange Oat Bars, No-Bake Citrus Granola Bars and Orange Juice Cake, to Orange Bread, Orange Olive Oil Baked Donuts and Orange Cranberry Crumble, there's definitely one option you're going to love in this mix! No need to limit these recipes to just breakfast either. Orange juice flavored treats are a welcome midday (or afternoon) snack that's still healthy and won't cause you to crash shortly after consuming it.
