Orange Dreamsicle Smoothie
Makes 2 ½ cups
Recipe from Cooking Light Magazine
Husband-Tested in (Ellen’s Kitchen) Alice’s good friend
I’ve mentioned before that my good buddy, Ellen, is a terrific cook and when I travel 100 miles to visit her home, she always makes me yummy meals and treats. On this last visit, she made this smoothie for a snack. It really, really tastes just like a Dreamsicle, but it’s made with some good-for-you ingredients. The kids will especially love this for an after-school refreshment.
1 cup plain Greek yogurt
2/3 cup ice cubes
½ cup chopped peeled ripe mango, frozen (or frozen mango cubes)
½ cup freshly squeezed orange juice
1 medium orange, peeled and sliced into segments
1 teaspoon real vanilla extract
Place all the ingredients in a blender and process 1 minute or until creamy and smooth.
