This Spicy Orange Creamsicle Smoothie checks all the boxes. It tastes amazing! The texture is creamy like any good smoothie would be—even though it has a blended root veggie. It's easy to prepare with only six key ingredients. Best of all (in our opinion), is it's rich in fiber, antioxidants, and phytochemicals—these are beneficial compounds found in whole plant foods ("Phyto" refers to plants). This smoothie can easily be made nut-free and soy-free.
This smoothie is reminiscent of that creamy popsicle made with orange-flavored sherbet and vanilla ice cream—but without the high fructose corn syrup, other additives, and the crash and burn afterward. High in beta carotene, Vitamins C and E, this smoothie is arguably a "superfood." The ginger, which is good for digestion, also gives it a spicy kick! Since this smoothie uses the orange, carrot, and ginger root (not their extracted juices), as well as a date, it's also high in fiber, which supports a healthy gut.
Spicy Orange Creamsicle Smoothie has 6 key ingredients:
- Orange (navel)
- Ginger root
- Sunflower Seeds
- Date or Simple Homemade Date Syrup
- Plain, unsweetened almond milk (okay to substitute with plain, unsweetened soy, hemp or coconut milk)
How to Prepare
- Soak a pitted date in hot water for 5 minutes to soften.
- Peel the orange and ginger root. If your carrot has rough spots, go ahead and peel that, too.
- Rough chop carrot and ginger to help it break down more quickly in the blender.
- Put all ingredients, plus ice, into a blender and blend at high speed for about 30 seconds.
