Recently, I was gifted with two large bottles of floral water. A sweet friend delivered some orange blossom and geranium water, after seeing me obsessing over rose water in so many recipes.

How to use orange blossom water?

Although I love floral water, I'm always wondering the best way to use it. The flavor is strong and so fragrant it can taste like perfume if you're not careful. Some ways that I really enjoy my floral water in floral syrups, over pomegranate seeds, in popsicles, and in lemonade, and even iced tea. I also love to add it to my bath and to make a paste with my face masks. But with two large bottles, and an international move coming up, I was wondering how I could make great use of them in new ways.

The inspiration

After finding a huge mango in the market, I decided to try their flavor out in smoothies. And oh my gosh, I was blown away. I really love sweet, fruity scents mixed with floral ones in my diffuser. So, why not try a floral smoothie, I thought?

I've actually had floral smoothies on my brain since this summer when I was making a lot of blueberry lavender smoothies. I have this idea to create a botanical smoothie post for you. I know you all love adding the beauty of flowers to everything as much as I do. However, I couldn't think of more delicious sounding recipes at the time.

Ingredients in this orange blossom smoothie:

  • frozen mango chunks
  • bergamot - sub with orange if you can't find it
  • orange blossom water + ½ cup regular water
  • honey to taste (optional)

INSTRUCTIONS

 In a blender, combine the frozen mango, bergamot juice, orange blossom water. Blend until completely smooth, adding more liquid if needed. Taste and see if sweetness is to your liking. If not, add local raw honey of choice. Pour into a tall glass. Enjoy!

Now, I have some help from my new floral waters! My floral water really mixed beautifully with my fruit and took the flavor to WOW. This smoothie was like a glass of sunshine. My recommendation? If you ever see a bottle of rose, neroli (orange blossom) or geranium water - GRAB IT!

Where to buy orange blossom water? 

Cortas Orange Flower Water is distilled from bitter orange blossoms. You can flavor drinks and desserts, dress salads, sprinkle it on fruit, flavor batters, and more. If you don't get results that you like, or don't have time to make your own, you can buy orange flower water online. You can also look for it in pharmacies and halal or Middle Eastern markets. Be sure that it's 100 percent pure and not artificially flavored.
