Orange Dream Smoothie


I love smoothies – because they are quick & easy to make, portable, and a great way to just load up on the fiber & superfoods – to deliver long-lasting energy and support digestion, brain function, etc.

This Orange Dreamsicle smoothie is so good – your kids won’t even know that it is good for them – it’s tastes like a creamsicle, but it is loaded with brain-boosting omega 3s, digestion-boosting fiber, and immune-boosting vitamin c and beta carotene – it’s like a dream!

This recipe makes one large smoothie, or two smaller ones.

ORANGE DREAM SMOOTHIE

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1/2 cup of coconut milk

  • 1/2 cup of coconut water

  • 1 whole peeled small orange

  • 3-4 organic baby carrots, (or 1 peeled small carrot)

  • 1-2 teaspoons of white chia seeds

  • 1/2 scoop of vegan vanilla protein powder (I like Warrior Blend vanilla)

  • 1/2 of a frozen banana

  • 1/2 of a cup of frozen mangos or peaches

  • 1-2 teaspoons of Barleans Omega Swirl – Mango Peach flavor (2 teaspoons contains 790 mg of DHA/EPA omega 3s)

  • splash of vanilla extract (about 1/4 teaspoon)

  • Small pinch of Real Salt – brings out flavors and sweetness – but just a pinch!

  • Ice – as needed to thicken

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Put the liquid, carrots and orange into the blender* – blend for a couple of minutes to completely liquify.

  2. Add the chia seeds and protein powder – stir to combine, and then let soak for 2-3 mins.

  3. Then add in the banana, mangos, Omega Swirl, vanilla, pinch of salt – blend.

  4. Add ice if you would like it thicker.

  5. Pour into a glass, and enjoy!

*A powerful blender like a Vitamix is best for this recipe.
