Orange Creamsicle Smoothie

Orange Creamsicle Smoothie

I’d like to introduce you to my newest, latest obsession: this orange creamsicle smoothie. He rocks my world. We’ve been hanging out over breakfast, having the odd lunch date and even meeting up for the odd quick mid-afternoon snack. I can’t seem to get enough. ♥♥♥

Orange Creamsicle Smoothie

The smoothies I usually spend time with are the complete opposite of this tasty orange treat. I tend to get a little carried away with kale and chai and all the other latest super foods that I can blend up. They’re usually some creepy greenish brown colour and taste about as good as they look. I am being a bit dramatic, they’re usually not that bad, but they’re not that great either.

This smoothie on the other hand ….

This one’s light and fresh, creamy and tangy, sweet and refreshing. I’ve thrown in some hemp, flax or chia seeds just for good measure but other than that I’ve tried to leave it alone. No trying to make him into some super-powered healthiest ever smoothie; he’s perfect just as he is.

I use a Vitamix for all my smoothies but any high-powered blender will work great. I have a feeling that with a regular blender you might end up with chunks of orange in your drink, which might not be a terrible thing.

Hope you enjoy this one as much as I do!

Broccoli and Chorizo Macaroni and Cheese

I know it’s mid-summer and you’re probably full on into light and fresh recipe mode but even this time of year I sometimes need to crawl back into comfort food mode, and I hope you do too.  Besides, it’s really hard for me to say no to a big pot of ooey, gooey, cheesy deliciousness. […]

Bacon Kale Caesar Salad

Bacon Kale Caesar Salad

I know that kale is overdone, over used and so last year, at least that’s what all the super cool, super hip kids are saying these days. But how am I supposed to move on when I’m still so in love? I’ve always trailed a step behind the newest trends (and don’t even get me […]

Sweet Sautéed Radishes

I can’t tell you how excited I am to share this recipe with you. For years I thought that a radish’s sole destiny was to end up in a salad. He might, if he were really lucky, end up sprinkled in a little sea salt and nibbled on raw. That was about as much as […]

Dark Chocolate Rhubarb Brownies

I was fairly certain I had lost my marbles when I found myself cutting up rhubarb and tossing it in with the brownie batter. I can’t stand to waste food and have been known to mix things together that sometimes work great (like these!) and sometimes … well, not everything can be perfect, right? Speaking […]

Sweet and Spicy Sautéed Kale Stems

What do you do with kale stems after you’ve torn off the tasty leaves? Do you throw them away? Compost them? EAT them?? I’ve been throwing a few stems into my morning smoothies; doesn’t add much taste but if I go a little overboard I’m left with a thick, in not a good kind of […]

Strawberry Rhubarb Pie with Extra Flaky Pie Crust

Have I ever told you about my granny and her world famous pie crust? The woman was a master at making the flakiest, most tender, melt-in-your-mouth pie crust I have ever tried. It was so good it defied logic. She was known far and wide (at least around Kelowna, the town I grew up in) […]
