Orange Creamsicle Smoothies

Orange Creamsicle Smoothies

I love to drink smoothies and enjoy trying out new recipes!
Whenever possible, I try to make everything my family and I consume with all natural ingredients. I recently found some recipes with many variations for making orange creamsicle smoothies. For anyone who does not know, a creamsicle is a frozen dessert made with vanilla ice cream and coated in fruit sherbet. They are a tasty treat bursting with flavor! While there are a variety of flavored fruit sherbet, orange is my favorite. 
Most of the recipes I found for this particular smoothie did not satisfy me. I prefer to use full fat dairy products instead of low fat or skimmed. I also prefer fresh squeezed oranges over the frozen concentrate.


Servings: 3

Ingredients:
1 cup full fat milk
3/4 cup plain yougurt
1/2 cup fresh squeezed orange juice
1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence (extract)
4 ice cubes

Method:
1. Combine milk, yogurt, orange juice and vanilla in blender
2. Blend 15 seconds to combine.
3. Add ice cubes and blend about 20 to 30 seconds to crush ice.

Serve immediately!

Enjoy this yummy treat :)

There's nothing quite like a healthy hack to make healthy orange creamsicle shakes. If you're into protein drinks, you can get the same effect with vanilla protein powder, milk, and OJ.

I love creamsicles and half expected this to be orange but if it matches in taste I am definitely signing up for a glass! :D

I had also expected this to look orange in color as well. When I took the first taste I was very amazed that it was just like the creamsicle flavor!

I do love me some orange creamsicles and this does sound soooo yummy! I'm going to try to recreate this one with a few changes. I know it won't be as good, but being a diabetic I don't have a choice. You've just made me crave one so bad! :)
