Orange Juice Belgian Waffles

Enter these orange juice belgian waffles. These beauties are bursting with orange flavor thanks to swapping out milk for 100% orange juice. Not only does that make them delicious and dairy-free, but it also makes them full of vitamin C. Because according to the dietary guidelines one cup of 100% fruit juice is equivalent to one cup of fruit and contains similar nutrients to the fruit it is squeezed from.
