Try this orange smoothie recipe for a bright, delicious drink at breakfast or snack time. So healthy, so good!
There’s nothing like a bright smoothie to get your day off to a great start. This orange smoothie recipe tastes as vibrant as it looks. It’s creamy and not too sweet, just how I like my smoothies.
I love the creaminess that full-fat coconut milk lends to smoothies. You can easily make your own coconut milk, but if you’re buying it, look for a kind without additives.
A high-powered blender can handle the orange and carrot, making a perfectly smooth smoothie despite the dense ingredients. If you don’t have a strong blender, I recommend steaming the carrot first so it’s soft enough to puree into this smoothie. For an extra cold drink, use sliced frozen bananas.
