Lately I’m noticing that my Pinterest boards are full of delicious citrus treats… I feel like citrus is so refreshing! I know it’s more traditionally associated with summer, but I love it all year round. This smoothie is really more of a dessert than a breakfast smoothie, but it’s amazingly delicious. It took me less than five minutes to make, and it was like catnip for Lizzy when I shared it with her. She drank her own full smoothie and then whined at me for the rest of my smoothie. The original post said that this smoothie tastes like an orange push-up, but since I’ve never had one of those, I’d say it tastes a lot like an orange creamsicle. It will definitely satisfy that sweet tooth!
Creamy Orange Smoothie
adapted from Averie Cooks
1 can frozen orange juice concentrate (I used Hawaii’s Own brand, which worked great)
1 cup milk
1/2 cup sugar, to taste (you may need to add more if your orange juice is less sweet)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups ice
Add orange juice, milk, sugar, and vanilla to blender. Blend until thoroughly mixed and the sugar has dissolved. Add ice and blend until smooth. Makes about 3 cups. If you have leftovers, try freezing them in popsicle molds for a delicious treat!
