Simple, creamy and sweet orange yogurt smoothie.

Sometimes I create recipes that I think are too simple to share.

Like this 3-ingredient, orange creamsicle smoothie.

But then again, if it’s really yummy and I think others would like it, it deserves to be posted!

When citrus is in abundance I like adding it to all kinds of recipes.

Other than the obvious of snacking on the orange slices and adding it to a salad, tossing it into the blender to make a healthy and vibrant smoothie is always a great idea.

When the orange is juicy and sweet, not much else needs to be added to enhance the flavor.

The orange peel is often tossed away but the citrus zest is extremely aromatic and contains good amounts of provitamin A, folate, vitamin B6, and calcium!

Plus, it’s rich in plant compounds called polyphenols, which may help prevent and manage many chronic conditions, such as type 2 diabetes and obesity.

So next time you plan to use an orange, grapefruit or lemon, zest it first and add the zest to your food!

Instead of banana, I like adding plain coconut yogurt.

Coconut yogurt is my preferred dairy free alternative as it’s still thick and creamy and has added health benefits.

It is low in sugar, full of antioxidants, and provide easily metabolized fatty acids.

Depending on how sweet you like your smoothies, you can add a bit of honey or maple syrup. Start with just a small amount to not overpower the orange flavor.

 

This orange yogurt smoothie is garnished with dehydrated orange slices.

 

Steps

1
Done

Zest & Peel The Oranges

First, wash your oranges and dry them well.

Zest the oranges then cut off the top and bottom so the orange can stand up straight on your board.

Next, using a smaller knife, guide the blade down the orange and cut off the peel.

Once the peel is removed, cut around the middle to get big juicy chunks.

My friend Sandy has a great video on how to properly slice an orange!

Now add all of the smoothie ingredients to your blender.

Done

Blend & Serve

Blend the smoothie until it's nice and smooth.

If the smoothie is too thick you can add another splash of water or if it's too runny, add more yogurt!

For the non- vegan version, to get the frothy of a Creamsicle I added an organic raw egg to the blender along with 1 scoop of organic protein powder. Delicious ?
