Honey Mint Orange Slices Recipe

This post may contain affiliate links. Please read my Disclosure and Privacy Policy.

This orange slices recipe is a keeper!  Last month I bought a 10lb bag of navel oranges for only $6.98 that were the best oranges I’ve ever had.  They were like candy and I picked them up from Sam’s Club. That has been my favorite location for produce for a long time. Besides being a great value, I’ve found that the quality is great. I also love the seasonal varieties.My in-laws tried the Cara Cara navel oranges and shared some with me. They were unique and equally as delicious so I picked up my own 8lb. bag. That meant I had refrigerator full of oranges! I had to try new ways to enjoy oranges to switch things up so I made these Honey Mint Orange Slices with my mini chef.

Enjoy the refreshing flavors of traditional navel and Cara Cara navel orange slices topped with fresh mint and honey! Try this fruit salad for breakfast or dessert. Would be great for Easter, Mother's Day or Christmas brunch.

Why Cara Cara Navel Oranges are Awesome

If you have never tried the Cara Cara navel orange, you should! These darker oranges are very sweet but have a slight tartness that isn’t there with the traditional navel orange. Do not mistake them for a grapefruit as they are not nearly that tart! They are juicy, flavorful and a nice variation.

Easy Orange Slices Recipe

I sliced the oranges while Wesley made this easy glaze with honey and lime juice. If you want it extra sweet you could add more honey.

I found the sweetness of the oranges paired well with a slightly strong lime flavor so I did equal parts of honey and lime juice. I keep a few herb plants in my house so I usually have mint around. You can skip the mint but it really added some gorgeous color and flavor.

Honey Orange Slices Tips:

If you want the oranges to really infuse with the honey dressing, you can prepare this in advance and let the flavors blend more.  We served ours immediately. My kids all loved these orange slices!
