I'll bet the orange flavor is really intense using the whole orange, peel and all! They sound yummy and very healthy to boot! Thanks for sharing the recipe!

I agree with Michelle. All the ingredients sound yummy together. I am a bit curious about the clementine skin flavor and texture... I'll have to steal one from Michelle.

What a cool idea to use the whole, unpeeled cutie! I just knew they were the perfect fruit. :)
I found you through the Living Well Blog Hop, by the way, and I'm excited to read more of your posts!

Wow! This recipe really intrigues me so I'm going to have to try these. Hopefully I'll find time this weekend. I've got a full bag of Cuties waiting in the fridge. I'm your newest follower.
