This Spicy Orange Creamsicle Smoothie checks all the boxes. It tastes amazing! The texture is creamy like any good smoothie would be. 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). #creamsiclesmoothie #healthyveganrecipes #danielfastrecipes #carrot #orange #ginger #sunflowerseeds #almondmilk


Units Scale
  • 1 Carrot (medium or about 100 grams, 3.5 ounces), roughly chopped
  • 1 Orange (preferably, navel), peeled
  • 1 Tbsp sunflower seeds, raw and unsalted
  • 1- to 2-inch piece of fresh ginger root, peeled (use a 2-inch piece if you like it extra spicy)
  • 1 date, pitted and soaked in hot water for 5 minutes (or 2 Tbsp Simple Homemade Date Syrup)
  • 1 cup unsweetened, plain almond milk
  • 1 cup ice


  1. Soak a pitted date in hot water for 5 minutes to soften.
  2. Peel the orange and ginger root. If your carrot has rough spots, go ahead and peel that, too.
  3. Rough chop carrot and ginger to help it break down more quickly in the blender.
  4. Put all ingredients, plus ice, into a blender and blend at high speed for about 30 seconds.

Enjoy immediately or transfer to an air-tight container and refrigerate for up to 24-hours.
