Orange Creamsicles... drinkables

 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.  

Breakfast-worthy Orange Creamsicle Smoothie


1 11 oz. can mandarin oranges in juice 

1/2 cup frozen pineapple chunks 

1/2 cup vanilla yogurt

1 Tbsp. honey

1 cup vanilla soy milk

1/2 cup ice
 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.

Easy Boozed-up Creamsicle

Pour the vanilla vodka into a collins glass with ice. Add orange crush til it tastes good. Serve.
