The final day of the smoothie challenge brought my favorite creation of the week. As a kid, I loved orange dreamsiscles. I used to mix vanilla ice cream with orange juice just to mimic the flavor. My smoothie today tasted exactly like a dreamsiscle: creamy & citrusy with a good punch of vanilla.
1/2 cup coconut milk
1/2 cup orange juice
1/2 frozen banana
1 medjool date (or sub 1 TB of honey, maple syrup, etc)
1 TB ground flax
1 TB chia seeds
4 small clementines (or sub an orange)
splash of vanilla
sprinkle of cinnamon
handful of ice
This one turned out so good that I actually stopped to buy a bag of oranges today so that I can continue to pretend it’s summer and slurp away on this orangey creamy goodness.
With that, the five day smoothie challenge is complete. I will not be continuing to have a smoothie every single morning because it’s too darn cold outside for that. However, I’m glad I did the challenge because it made me remember how much I like smoothies. I plan to start incorporating more of them again on a regular basis. Cheers!
