This Orange Vitamin-C Smoothie is hands-down one of the best smoothies I’ve had in a long time. It tastes like a sip of summer in a glass!
I wouldn’t quite call myself a smoothie connoisseur, but I’ve had a lot of smoothies in my day. I’ve not only been making them for years at home, but I’ve tried quite a few of them from local restaurants and fast-food places. Sure it’s easy to run through the drive through to buy one, but hands-down they are always better when made at home. Am I right or am I right? I know it is a little bit of a hassle to drag out the blender and all, but just do it, it’s worth the extra effort. Just trust me on this one!
I sort of threw this smoothie together on a whim. We had quite a few yogurts in the refrigerator that were going to go bad and when I thought, “what to do, what to do…” my mind immediately went to smoothies! I was initially going for an orange creamsicle flavor, but when I realized I had both peaches and mangos in the freezer, I thought I’d throw them in for fun. The result, pure summer in a glass! It was sooo super creamy, tart and sweet all at the same time, I’m surprised I got any pictures at all before devouring it!
Have I hooked you yet? Well, even if it’s a hassle to drag the old blender out of storage, making the actual smoothie is a breeze! Simply throw in a container of yogurt, some frozen peaches and mango and top with a glass of OJ and blend away! I like my smoothies on the thicker side, but if you want it thinner, just add additional orange juice. The result is smoothie perfection! Like I said before, this is hands down one of the best smoothies I’ve had in a while. Plus, with summer about halfway over, this will help keep it alive! Give it a try, you’ll be hooked after one sip! Remember, you trust me 🙂
