Creamsicle Smoothie! Dairy-free, whole-foods vegan smoothie, using Vega One and Silk Almond Milk #buildabettersmoothie

Creamsicle Smoothie

Like the childhood ice cream treat, churned into a nutritious, refreshing dairy-free smoothie!

Ingredients

  • 1 large orange outer peel cut away (can substitute 1/2 cup orange juice)
  • 1 small or 1/2 large lemon outer peel cut away
  • 1/2 cup sliced raw carrots
  • 1 cup Silk Unsweetened Original Almond Milk  see note
  • 1/2 - 1 scoop Vega One French Vanilla see note
  • 1/2 cup frozen pineapple or frozen mango
  • 1 cup frozen sliced banana see note
  • optional: 1 tbsp raw cashew butter or raw almond butter
  • optional: couple pinches vanilla bean powder
  • 1/2 cup ice optional

Instructions

  1. Add all ingredients (except ice, and starting with 1/2 cup of powder) to a blender. Puree until very smooth. Taste, and add extra powder if desired, and extra milk to thin if desired. Add ice to glasses and pour smoothies over ice if using. Serve. Makes just over 3 1/2 cups; makes 2 large smoothies or 3 smaller.

Recipe Notes

Vega Note: I prefer this smoothie with 1/2 scoop of the vanilla powder. You can taste and adjust to use the full scoop if desired. Milk Note: I prefer keeping unsweetened milks on hand, because they are the most versatile in recipes - can be used in both savory and sweet. Here, you can always add a touch of sweetness with a drizzle of maple syrup. I don't think you'll need it though. If you're using overripe (frozen) bananas, there is enough sweetness along with the pineapple and mango. Banana Note: The pineapple, banana, and mango can be used interchangeable if you prefer one more than the other. For instance, you can use 1 cup of frozen mango and 1/2 cup of pineapple, or 3/4 cup of frozen banana and 3/4 cup of frozen pineapple. The flavour will change just slightly with the highlighted fruit.
