This Orange Creamsicle Smoothie is delicious and satisfying enough for breakfast or an afternoon snack.
One of my favorite treats from the ice cream man when I was a kid was the orange creamsicle and I couldn’t tell you the last time I had one as I’m not really a fan of anything flavored orange any longer. But one afternoon I was craving a smoothie and had a lone orange laying around so I decided to make this Orange Creamsicle Smoothie.
As a kid, I remember that it was always a toss up between the bomb pop, strawberry shortcake or orange creamsicle whenever that ice cream truck came down the street. Of course, I’m talking about when I was 8 years old as you can tell by my super sweet, sugary selections. As I grew older (and of drinking age), my friend and I used to visit my grandparents who lived down the shore (the beach for all of you non-Jersey readers) where we would play penny poker and drink an alcoholic version of the creamsicle; which was made of Galiano, Triple Sec, orange juice and milk; not to mention had a lot of laughs.
I haven’t had either creamsicle varieties in years and I guess I just got to thinking about my grandmother who passed away a year and a half ago and decided to make an Orange Creamsicle Smoothie instead. I used simple ingredients: orange, plain Greek yogurt, vanilla extract, flaxseed meal and ice. All you have to do is blend everything together in a blender and it’s ready in less than 5 minutes.This Orange Creamsicle Smoothie is delicious and satisfying enough for breakfast or an… Click To Tweet
