This recipe was brought to us by our daughter, who lives in Southern California. She has several orange trees in her garden. The trees bloom and come into fruit in alternating seasons. This way we always have fresh organic orange juice when we visit. It is delightful.
At the Palmer House, we frequently use fresh squeezed orange juice from the local farmer’s market. It makes a wonderful impression in our signature morning juice, the Cape Cod Sunrise.
Another key element to this recipe is the freezing of the orange juice. This not only allows you to save some of that healthy vitamin C for a few extra days, it allows the smoothie to contain all fruit and keeps it from tasting watered down.

The Inn’s organic herb garden, we affectionately refer to as The Humble Innkeeper’s Garden, is one of the secluded nooks where you can spend time relaxing. Many of the garnishes for the breakfasts are picked each day from this garden to ensure top quality ingredients are used.
