Wild Blueberry Orange Creamsicle Smoothie

35

I tend to think of smoothies as just breakfast food, when I should be considering them for afternoon energy, too. After all, I think a fruit-infused, whole food beverage will power me through my 5pm workouts a lot better than the cookies I sometimes reach for! The problem is, my smoothies tend to be big, thick shakes that are rather filling. So I dialed it back and focused on fresh flavors with this Wild Blueberry Orange Creamsicle Smoothie (Recipe HERE!).

The two keys to this creamsicle smoothie recipe are the orange juice and the Wild Blueberries. I trialed it withΒ orange juice from concentrate, not-from-concentrate, and fresh-squeezed. The fresh-squeezed was the hands down winner, but not-from-concentrate wasn’t bad either. It adds such a delicious, sweet, tangy pop of flavor that no salt or sweetener is needed.

And let me tell you, choosing Wild Blueberries at the store makes all the difference, too. Conventional blueberries often taste watery and are out of season, which equals reduced nutrients and taste. Wild Blueberries get their brilliant hue and potent flavor from their double dose of antioxidants. They’re flash frozen at harvest to lock in all of that goodness, and to make them available year round. For this orange creamsicle smoothie recipe, I bought my Wild Blueberries in the freezer section at Trader Joe’s (they have organic, too!), but I sometimes by Wyman’s brand at a local mainstream grocer.

But enough shopping tips. It’s time for you to whip up this blueberry-orange creamsicle smoothie! It’s deliciously seasonal with citrus and naturally dairy-free, gluten-free, allergy-friendly, vegan AND paleo.

  1. Such a great flavor combo with the blueberries and oranges! Both of what I have and haven’t had together in a smoothie in so long as I’ve been on an orange and raspberry, strawberry, cranberry, or cherry kick to break my blueberry kick but this is a must make!

    • Same with me! I imagine they wouldn’t taste nearly as good to me now. The other day both my husband and I had a popular treat that we hadn’t had in decades. We loved it back then, but couldn’t believe how terrible it was to us now. I think we’ve adapted our tastes πŸ™‚

  2. Blueberries might be my all time favorite fruit. I can eat them straight up, but love them in a smoothie as well. Orange seems like a perfect pairing partner!

  3. This looks and sounds incredible! I could have a smoothie for breakfast, lunch and dinner but with it being so cold right now I’ve kind of gone away from them. I’ve started to get a craving for them again though!
