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 fellow is creamy, dreamy, and packed with protein + Vitamin C. It makes rainy days feel sunny and winter days feel like summer (…and I haven’t it tried it in the summer but I imagine it would be off the chizang).

    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!

  2. This looks so bright and healthy – like a ray of sunshine! Just beautiful!

  4. Smoothies are one of my favorite ways to start the day and yours looks especially cheerful! I haven’t tried this flavor combo, but I know the family would love it. Thanks for the idea. It’s good to have new ones to add to the rotation.

    1. Sarah says:

      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.

  5. Looks delicious and who wouldn’t drink this up in about one second.

    1. Sarah says:
