Orange Cream Smoothie – refreshing and satisfying drink!
I am in a desperate need of sunshine. Every time the sun comes out just at least a tiny bit, I get excited! Mind you it’s usually short-lived but I try to appreciate every little sun ray. The gray winter days are just so depressing!
It’s a citrus season and oranges always remind me of sunshine. I decided to bring a little bit of happy sunshine to our mornings and made this smoothie. I used my Blendtec Blender on it’s smoothie setting.
It’s creamy with all the good thing oranges have to offer.
Oranges – excellent source of vitamin C, a powerful natural antioxidant; great source of vitamin A (good for your skin and vision) and B-complex.
Oats – one of the most fun grains to eat! full of fiber that controls your blood sugar and keeps you satisfied.
Greek yogurt (vanilla flavor) – high in protein which helps fill you up.
My kids loved it and called it the Sunshine Smoothie!! I will take it!
