Buttery caramel, and crunchy pecans make this sticky, sweet, and oh so delicious caramel pecan monkey bread a fantastic way to start the day. Pair it with a Florida Orange Juice smoothie for a perfect morning.
The perfect morning to me is the family gathered around the table, the sink empty of prep dishes, and a fast, but delicious food on the table. I mean who wants to do a ton of dishes first thing? Not this mama. With the Pepperidge Farms Sweet Rolls I get all of that and more. These large sweet rolls are made with real cinnamon and are perfect to serve in the morning as is, or in a fun recipe like the one I am going to share with you.
Mr. EZPZ works a lot of nights, so mornings are when we get to spend some time together, so I love when we can do that over something delicious like this caramel pecan monkey bread and OJ Smoothie! I am a huge smoothie lover, and pretty much make one every single day. (Watch my video about smoothie making here.) And I love juice smoothies!
I have always loved smoothies. In fact, when I was in high school I got a job at Orange Julius in the mall. My dad worked in an office building in downtown, and the mall was right across the street. I thought it would be cool to work close to him and we could ride into work together. Well…it was a mess. My schedule was not 8-6 like his. And I did not have a car. So if I went in to work with him I would then have 4-5 hours of doing nothing before or after my job started. I could ride the bus in, but then I spent those same 4-5 hours on the bus. So I worked a grand total of 2 days before my Dad asked me to quit! (He was worried about me spending copious hours alone in a city) I was so bummed because I loved their smoothies and wanted to get them for free. But the shirt I had to wear was really horrid, so thanks Dad! Haha. Anyway, now I just make them myself.
Orange Juice Smoothie Caramel Pecan Monkey Bread
- 1 cup Florida Orange Juice
- 1 cup frozen mango chunks
- 1 cup frozen mixed fruit
- 1/2 a banana
- 3- 15.8 ounce cans Pepperidge Farms Pecan Caramel Sweet Rolls
- 1/2 cup melted butter
- 2/3 cup brown sugar
- 4 ounces cream cheese
- 1/2 cup powdered sugar
- 1/3 tsp lemon juice
- Put everything in blender and blend it up!
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
- Spray bundt pan with no stick spray
- Open the 3 cans of Pepperidge Farms Pecan Caramel Sweet Rolls, remove the sauce and the chopped pecans, set aside
- Melt butter and stir in brown sugar, then add in the three packets of sauce that came with the rolls
- Cut each roll into four to six pieces, and layer them into the bundt pan
- When you have put about half the roll pieces in, sprinkle with 1 of the packets of pecans, and half the sauce mixture
- Layer the other half, sprinkle on another packet of pecan, and the other half the sauce mixture
- Bake 23-28 minutes (Every oven is a bit different, base cooking time on your oven, and adjust accordingly. This temperature and time worked perfectly for me)
- Remove from oven, let cool 3-5 minutes
- Flip over on to serving tray.
- Mix together topping ingredients, and spoon over top, cake is still a little hot so it should get melty, if not, feel free to return to oven for 3-5 minutes!

Anyway, let me just say this is yum, and I totally recommend it. Plus when I was at Walmart picking up all the ingredients I needed there was a tear pad coupon by the 100% Florida Orange Juice, for $1 off when you buy both 100% Florida OJ and Pepperidge Farm Sweet Rolls, so look for that while you shop because saving money is always nice!
