Orange Cherry Creamsicle Smoothie

So on my quest to improve my health and thus use less healthcare, I’ve been “inventing” smoothies.  Yesterday, I accidentally made one that was very disgusting.  Lesson learned…never mix watermelon with kale.  Ewwww.  But today, I think I found the most harmonious concoction yet.  I’ll dub it the Orange Cherry Creamsicle Smoothie.

  • 1 large naval orange (peeled and divided)
  • 1 cup of frozen sweet cherries
  • 1/4 cup of plain greek yogurt
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 heaping tablespoon of ground chia, flax, hempseed mix (I just ground it in my coffee grinder)
  • Blend all ingredients till smooth
  • Add about 1 and 1/2 cups ice, and blend again.

This concoction was sooooo delicious.  I can’t wait to make it again.  The yogurt will provide some probiotics and the seeds will provide protein.  The orange will give me the vitamin C I need to boost my immune system.  It’s all natural and makes a great meal replacement for breakfast.
