This simple dessert works any time of the year, but its flavors will be the best and brightest in the winter when oranges are at their peak.

Super simple way to really liven up sliced oranges! Cinnamon and the additional citrus juices worked really well here. I also found that garnishing with fresh raspberries paired perfectly with this. This is delicious!

kids love it Great recipe! Me and my kids did this for snack and my kids asked for us to make some more! We used to have Berry Buttermilk Soup which we found on but it's nice to try new things. I often check it out for recipes and cooking information including this website,,,, and the for different moods and occasions. Thanks for this appetizing recipe! By the way, here's the link to the mentioned recipe: Pros: tasty, loved by my kids Cons: does not get my kids's tummies full

100 calorie recipies? It doesnt take a nutritional magician to make a slice of orange or a third of a banana less then 100 calories. I can make butter infused with duck fat for less then 100 calories but the serving size will be about as satisfying as these recipies. Yes, portion control is important but a slice of orange topped with sugar will do absolutely nothing to stave off fact the spike in your glycemic index will more then likely TRIGGER hunger, rather then help it. Seriously... this is the type of garbage advice that keeps america fat. And who am I to say? I am a food addict who has lost over 100lbs and kept it off for 8 years. No fad diets. Thats who!

Yummy! This was delicious and very zippy. I served in a small dish with creamy vanilla yogurt and my husband loved it! Next time, he requested that I crumble up one Nilla Wafer in his. I was surprised how the letting it marinate in the lemon and oj made the orange slices even juicier. Yum! Pros: Easy and tasty
