Cara Cara Smoothy

On February 27, 2012, Sunkist® held its first Cara Cara Cooking Class at Sur La Table at the Original Farmer’s Market in Los Angeles. Guests rolled up their sleeves alongside renowned Chef Danhi to chop, grill, juice and candy Sunkist® Cara Cara oranges.  Want to know what they cooked?  Visit Sunkist to view a recap of the event.

The Cara Cara orange, also known as the “Power Orange®”, is packed with vitamin A and C, fiber, folate and potassium, and lycopene: the disease-fighting antioxidant. It is a seedless orange with a tangy-cranberry like zing and it's delicious!  The coloring has a slight red tint making your finished dish even more appealing.

I went to the Sunkist site to check out their recipes and decided to come up with one of my own.  To do this, I enlisted the help of 3 of my grandkids and a friend.  We created the Cara Cara Smoothy and boy is it good!  If you don't believe these 4 kids, try it yourself.
