Orange Smoothie Tips
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 and thick drink, use sliced frozen bananas.
Orange Smoothie Recipe
- 1 3/4 cups coconut milk
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 small banana
- 1 orange
- 1 carrot
- 4 ice cubes
- Place the ingredients in the blender in the order listed. It’s important to load the blender with liquid first, followed by soft ingredients and then harder ingredients.
- Blend until smooth. Taste the drink and add a little pure maple syrup if you want it sweeter. Enjoy!
