This is a healthy, dairy-free take on the nostalgic flavor combination of sweetly acidic orange juice and creamy vanilla. These may seem like an odd marriage of flavors for those who didn't grow up getting creamsicle popsicles from the corner store but they play so well with each other - like pb&j or chocolate & strawberries! I really like it, can you tell?
So when vogue.com asked me to contribute my recipe for this healthy creamsicle smoothie for a feature on their site, I gleefully agreed! You can read my wee feature here. No big deal ;)
Recipe serves 1-2
3/4 C freshly squeezed orange juice
1/2 C coconut milk or unsweetened almond milk
3 small frozen bananas (cut into chunks before freezing)
2 tbsp chia seeds
1/2 tbsp pure vanilla extract
Whiz everything in a blender and enjoy!
