Orange Creamsicle Smoothie Using Real Oranges

Friday, January 27th, 2012 by by

I do not like fruit. The only fruit I can tolerate (usually) are green apples, and even then it takes a lot of convincing for me to eat them. I asked on Facebook for advice about how to get more fruit in my diet, and a few people who responded advised me to try smoothies. Since I am not a yogurt fan either, I didn’t even give it a thought, until I noticed we had a lot of oranges hanging around in my kitchen that were likely going to rot before anyone ate them. Which is a tragedy. Because I hate wasting food.

Enter the smoothie. Since I had no idea about how to make one other than blending yogurt and fruit, I went ahead and searched for my blender – which was not in the kitchen. This means, I can only assume, that it’s still packed in a box somewhere. No biggie, because I have a Magic Bullet that I used to make The Younger’s baby food, and that was unpacked (not sure how that happened, but oh well).

Best. Smoothie. Ever. Um, I can only assume since it’s the only one I’ve ever had, but still! Seriously, I had one as a snack yesterday for the first time (with a few oops), and I had one for breakfast this morning. I had both The Older (who hates yogurt and fruit too) and The Younger (who admittedly eats everything) taste it. Both of their eyes grew wide, and The Older even exclaimed, “I want one when we get home from church!”
