Wholesome Wednesday (Creamsicle Smoothie)
I haven't had much of an appetite today, but I need something nutritious before heading back outside. When I get in moods like this, the one thing I go back to time and time again is a smoothie. It's great for a quick snack or meal. I can make it in less than a minute and feel good about drinking it instead of opting for the less healthy choice of a candy bar. The smoothie du jour is creamsicle. It's light and fresh and has received approval from one of my toughest critics, Brandon. He took a sip and gave me a thumbs up :o)
Here's the recipe, enjoy! Check back in a few days to see what else I am cooking or crafting!
1 c. orange juice (regular or 50% less sugar)
1/2 c. milk
1/3 c. plain yogurt
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
3 ice cubes
Place all the ingredients in a blender and mix until ice cubes are broken up. Serve immediately. Also try adding a banana or some fresh pineapple!
