Healthy Orange Dreamsicle Smoothie

A quick and creamy Orange Dreamsicle Smoothie recipe to kick off your day with a boost of Vitamin C and happiness (and with just 5 easy ingredients!)

Healthy Orange Dreamsicle Smoothie

I used to be really affected by the weather. Rainy days would = less than joyous days. But then I moved to Holland where it’s almost always rainy, and I quickly realized I couldn’t let myself succumb to the rainy day blues.

And I think that’s the root of my obsession with smoothies. If you can have sunshine in a cup, what matter does the weather make any who? Enter the Orange Dreamsicle Smoothie.

This sunny orange smoothie is creamy, dreamy, and packed with protein + Vitamin C. It makes rainy days feel sunny and winter days feel like summer (speaking of summer, you have to try these Orange Creamsicle Popsicles!)

Ingredients in this creamy orange smoothie recipe

  • Oranges: We’ll use sweet mandarine oranges, but you could also use regular oranges!

  • Greek Yogurt: Adds a punch of protein while making this smoothie nice and creamy.
  • Coconut Water: Orange and coconut are a match made in heave, and coconut water is a low calorie way to get some delicious coconut flavor in there.

    Creamy, healthy, delicious! This sounds so great. I’d definitely make it with a frozen banana, I think smoothies always turn out better that way 🙂

      They definitely do! I Just never (ever ever) remember to freeze the bananas in advance!

      Thanks so much, Annemarie! I just started getting really into smoothies and started to fall into a routine of making pear + banana + spinach every morning, so I feel ya on needing new recipes to fit into the usual morning ritual.
