Remember the Orange Creamscile?
It’s still around, but you probably haven’t had one since you were a kid. It had such a specific orange flavour that you can probably still taste it. That’s the power of junk food, right?
My Orange Creamscile Smoothie is about a million times healthier, with way fewer ingredients, and you can enjoy it for breakfast. It has no sugar or chemicals, so if you’re getting nostalgic and craving one of your summer childhood faves, look no further.
I first tested this recipe a few weeks ago when I was back in Toronto, but right now I’m in the land of Florida oranges, which really are amazing.
Put a can of full-fat coconut milk in the fridge so that the cream part at the top totally separates from the watery milk. That cream is what you want for your smoothie. Don’t be afraid of fat! Our bodies need fat so don’t sweat it. Add 1/2 of a chopped orange and some chia seeds, which will thicken the smoothie right up. Your body will love you since this smoothie is full of healthy fat from the coconut milk and protein from the chia seeds… not exactly what your typical popsicle can brag about.
This smoothie is dreamy and delicious, and just right for spring/almost summer.
- The cream from 1 can full-fat coconut milk
- ½ orange, chopped
- 2 tbsp chia seeds
- Sweetener: honey, maple syrup, 1 date (optional)
- Blend everything together until smooth and creamy. Add some more of the coconut milk (the liquid part) if you want it a bit thinner.
- Enjoy, hopefully outside in the sunshine.
