I was looking for a fast healthy pick-me-up this morning when I came across this orange sunshine smoothie from Sally at sallysbakingaddiction.com. And it fits the bill perfectly! You won’t believe how simple & quick – just using fruits and a splash of OJ.
Feeling lethargic and run down? Well, you are 5 minutes away from feeling a lot better. Vitamin C has never tasted sooooo good! Bright citrus flavors paired with creamy banana, sweet mango, and a splash of orange juice.
This shockingly simple smoothie will make you feel like your dippin’ your toes in the sand listening to the ocean.
Check out the recipe below and let me know what you think…
Here’s Sally’s secret…
The frozen banana makes the healthiest, purist, creamiest base for a super thick smoothie. In fact, I often eat a giant bowl of blended frozen “banana whip” (just 2 frozen bananas cut into chunks then blended with a touch of milk) and sprinkled mini chocolate chips on top. Mind-blowing good. Try it!
Without a doubt, frozen bananas are my secret weapon when it comes to creamy smoothies. And no one will be any the wiser! “Is there ice cream in this?” Kevin asked when he tried a sip of today’s smoothie. Ha!
Play around with the fruits you use. Frozen mango, a little frozen pineapple, and 2 oranges are what I like to use. Have a grapefruit on hand? Use 1 orange + 1 grapefruit instead. Or decrease the mango and increase the pineapple. Go fruit wild.
This creamy smoothie tastes like a tropical mango-pineapple version of an orange julius. Enough said! So go ahead, put your feet up and dream of warm sunny days with a citrus bursting smoothie in hand. Makes the gloomy rain and snow outside seem much more tolerable!
