These refreshing orange creamsicle smoothies taste just like the ice cream bar, but they're healthy enough to serve for breakfast.
If you want to get that icy, milkshake texture, it's best to freeze the mandarin oranges first. But if you're in a hurry, you can use the oranges right out of the can and just add more ice.
- 1 can oranges (11-ounce mandarin oranges in juice)
- 1/2 cup pineapple (frozen chunks)
- 1/2 cup yogurt (vanilla, or vanilla soy yogurt)
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 1 cup soy milk (vanilla)
- Open can of oranges and drain. Place in a zip-top plastic bag and freeze several hours.
- Place the frozen oranges and pineapple chunks in the bottom of a blender, Vita Mix, or food processor.
- Add the remaining ingredients in the order listed. Puree until the mixture reaches the texture of a milkshake. Add more ice, if desired, until an icy consistency is achieved.
