Creamy Dreamy Orange Smoothie
Updated: Nov 8, 2019
I like to use local, seasonal fruits and veggies as much as possible. Spring is here and I'm loving all the oranges that are in season right now. I made this smoothie the other day with fresh oranges from my friend's garden and it turned out awesome.
This smoothie is creamy, refreshing and nutritious. It's packed with Vitamin C, healthy fats and protein but most importantly, it tastes amazing!
2 navel oranges-peeled and roughly chopped
1 ripe banana
Handful of cashews
2 tbsp hemp seeds(optional)
2 tbsp chia seeds
2 tbsp raw pumpkin seeds
1 tbsp sesame seeds
1/4″ piece turmeric root
Dash of cinnamon
Honey or maple syrup(optional)
1 cup Almond milk/ coconut milk/ water
Put the cashews, hemp seeds, chia seeds, pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds in a blender and blend.
Add the oranges, banana, turmeric root, cinnamon, and almond milk and blend again until smooth.
Drizzle some honey/ maple syrup if you like it sweeter. The oranges I used were super sweet, so I didn't use any.
Pour into glasses and enjoy!
