Orange Creamsicle Smoothie

1

Um, I can’t believe how good this smoothie is!!!  It’s only got a few ingredients, so it’s better as a snack and not as a meal replacement, but oh what a snack it makes!  This stuff is perfect to sip on while sitting next to the pool, and there’s still a little bit of summer left!  However, of course you don’t need a pool to enjoy this stuff.  Not only that, I would be happy to drink this year round – it’s that good!

Alright, have you ever had an orange creamsicle?  You know, those popsicles that are orange with cream on the inside?  Oh my gosh, they are delicious!  Only problem – they’re not that great for you due to their sugar content and other questionable ingredients!  But guess what?  This smoothie tastes EXACTLY like those delicious pops, but is made from ingredients that are great for you!  Of course, the main ingredient being an orange!

So, we get all these awesome health benefits from the orange alone.  The “creamy” flavor comes from some plain greek yogurt mixed with a bit of almond milk, vanilla, and optional stevia.  I can’t believe how awesome this tastes – I feel like I’m eating something bad, but I’m actually indulging in a nutrient full snack!  Let’s take a look at the recipe!
