Warm Oatmeal 

Adding fresh orange slices to your first bowl of warm oatmeal is a great way to start your day. You can add extra fruit and nuts for even more flavor and nutritional benefits. 

Chicken Wraps

Try out an Asian-cuisine-inspired chicken wrap recipe with chicken strips and signature elements like shredded carrots and a light orange ginger vinaigrette. Small mandarin orange slices are best to fit into these wraps and provide a fantastic rush of sweetness mixed in with the savory chicken. 

Make Fruit Kabobs

You can add peeled orange wedges, strawberries, cantaloupe, grapes, bananas, and pineapple onto a wooden stick. Then, you can dip your sweet fruit kabobs into a chocolate dip or low-fat fruit yogurt and enjoy. Great for fun get-togethers, especially for those with sweet tooths! 

Try a New Fruit Salad

You can add fresh oranges to your next delicious fruit salad. Mix together the orange slices, mango, and strawberries with just a sprinkle of chili powder, a squeeze of lime juice, and honey. Serve topped with low-fat yogurt, and prepare to enjoy a blast of flavors. 

Try Orange Lemonade!

If you want to give your orange juice a creative twist, try making orange lemonade. Combine your freshly squeezed orange and lemon juice with water, sugar, and fresh orange and lemon slices in a pitcher. Mix, and then chill. Pour over ice for an unbelievably refreshing pick-me-up. 

Add Something Extra to Your Salad

Oranges, like strawberries or cranberries, make for excellent additions to leafy salads. Add some orange slices, strawberries, and walnuts onto a bed of your favorite greens for an easy salad with delicious flavor. 

Just Slice, Peel, and Eat!

No matter how else you like to enjoy fresh oranges, you can always return to the classic: enjoying the orange on its own. Whether you want to cut it into portable slices, or you like to take the time to peel the orange and dig in piece by piece, an orange is satisfying, and a sweet treat kids and adults can enjoy.
