Orange Creamsicle Smoothie {Summer Citrus Flavor}

Orange Creamsicle Smoothie

Dreamsicle Creamsicle SmoothieI’ve been out of the kitchen for far too long.  We finally, finally had a few warmer days here this week – just in time for spring break – and the summery taste of citrus was a perfect way to soak up our fleeting heat.  I don’t know what the deal is with our weather right now and I’m not completely convinced our meteorologists do either, but whatever it is, I am over it.  So over it.  I want summer and I want it now!

Sadly, the heat isn’t here to stay, or so we’re being told, and I’ll be snuggling back up in my puffy vest jackets for at least a few more weeks this year.  We (and by we, I mean ‘I’) have managed to get out and clear the garden plot so that it will be ready to go come April 15th (I won’t plant before April 15th) and we’ve got a few seeds we’re ready to start inside in the next week or so.

My daughter has the orange seeds she’s been hanging onto since last year.  They’ve been on the window sill, dry and waiting to be planted.  She’s determined to grow an orange tree, despite the fact that they don’t really grow here.  She gets points for determination, I suppose.  Perhaps we’ll have a few tiny, even if uneatable, oranges of our own this summer.

Maybe it’s warm enough where you are to sit outside and sip on a little bit of sunshine?  Maybe it’s not.  Either way, you can enjoy the taste of one of our Popsicle favorites in the convenience of a smoothie.

  1. Yum! Your smoothie reminds me of the Orange Julius drinks I consumed my first year in the US (at UCLA.) But your scrumptious concoction looks to be a lot healthier, Jamie. Thank you for the recipe.

    I’m really not a fan of smoothies (yea I know, *gasp*) however I think this one would be the exception. It must be the Greek yogurt part.

  6. Yep, not doubt about it, this would be delicious!!! Smooth, creamy and orangy :)
    Happy #SundaySupper

  22. I need this in my life right now!! The weather here is also all over the place, with most of the places being cold/raining/snowing/or windy. Ugh. I am so over it as well. Maybe if we make more creamsicle smoothies we can will the sun to come out!

  23. Soni says:

    We have had the longest winter here and it has everyone a bit gloomy. Thankfully the sun came out today to brighten our spirits. It is still bitterly cold but with the sun shinning it perks up the mood big time. This drink could bring a little taste of summer to my life.

  25. oh my goodness! I love this! what a great idea and looks so refreshing!

  26. Jaime, I could really go for a tall glass or three of this right now! Man, I love creamsicles…but I haven’t had one in probably 15 years. Plus this is totally healthy with the use of Greek yogurt. Yum!

  27. Sunithi says:

    Yummy ! reminds me of an orange julious which I love ! Cool & Creamy ! Nice pic !

  28. Yum, looks good! San Francisco doesn’t really have the climate for oranges either, but my dad did plant two dwarf orange trees in our backyard… the trees flourished, but they never produced any fruit!

  34. Could you please e-mail me the recipe for one serving? Thank you! My e-mail is rissarenee37@gmail.com

      Hi Marissa, For 1 serving you’d simply reduce the ice and orange juice to 1 cup each, and the yogurt to 4 ozs.
