Lately I have been thinking about foods and drinks that use flavors from other foods and drinks, and somehow this led to a small creamsicle smoothie obsession. Here are my smooth results.
Orange Creamsicle Smoothie
1 cup of orange juice
4 scoops of vanilla frozen yogurt or vanilla ice cream
(may I suggest natural vanilla bean ice cream)
Combine the orange juice and frozen yogurt or ice cream in a blender, magic bullet or food processor.
Blend until creamy.

Open can of oranges and drain. Place in a zip-top plastic bag and freeze the night before. Place the frozen oranges and pineapple chunks in the bottom of a blender, magic bullet, or food processor. Puree until the mixture reaches the texture of a milkshake. Add more ice, if desired.
