Creamsicle Protein Smoothie

A delicious blend of creamy vanilla and yummy orange. Just like a Creamsicle, but definitely much healthier.

Servings 1

Ingredients

  • 2 Mandarin oranges or seedless tangerines - If you have trouble finding Mandarin oranges, you can use those little lunch size cups found in most grocery stores
  • 1 frozen banana - peel and slice before freezing
  • 1/3 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • honey or Stevia, to taste
  • 1/2 serving vanilla protein powder, optional
  • 4 - 6 ice cubes

Instructions

  1. Place all of the ingredients (except the honey or Stevia) into a blender jar. Blend until the mixture is smooth, and the vanilla protein powder is blended in. If the smoothie is too thick, add a bit of water, so you can blend it to a smooth consistency. If you like your smoothie with a frozen texture, just add more ice. It's a great refresher on a hot day or after a workout. Sit back and enjoy!

 

If you want to make your Creamsicle Protein Smoothie a green smoothie, try adding a handful of spinach or kale. You’ll still have the wonderful fruity flavor, but you’ll add even more beneficial nutrients.

 

 

Customize Your Smoothies

Smoothies are an easy way to pack a lot of flavor and essential nutrients into a single glass. You can switch up your smoothies by changing the fruit, adding protein powder, using coconut syrup for sweetener, or even swapping the Greek yogurt for almond milk. The important thing is to watch the ingredients, so you aren’t packing in calories instead of vitamins and minerals.
