This Orange Creamsicle Smoothie made with fresh oranges, Greek yogurt and flaxseed 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. 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 lonely 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. When I got older, my friend and I used to visit my grandparents who lived down the Jersey shore.
We would go to the beach; then head back to their house for some penny poker and the alcoholic version of the creamsicle. We had a lot of laughs for sure!
I recently got to thinking about my grandmother who passed away a year and a half ago and decided to make an Orange Creamsicle Smoothie in her memory.
How do you make an Orange Creamsicle Smoothie?
For this recipe I used fresh oranges, 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 smoothie was deliciously creamy and tasted just like how I remember an Orange Creamsicle. And by adding the flaxseed, it also had more fiber which helps to fill you up so it’s perfect for breakfast or an afternoon pick me up. ~Enjoy!
