Tropical Orange Creamsicle Smoothie

tropical morning

I have fond memories of the classic creamsicle, orange and vanilla ice cream were dreamy and delicious. There is also the yummy orange julius that has the same flavor profile. These days, we try to avoid processed sugars and artificial flavors so we make our own for breakfast often. This one has whole milk yogurt for probiotics and protein, vanilla for deliciousness, orange juice for vitamin c, mango for some extra vitamin c, beta carotene (vitamin a) and phytonutrients Cryptoxanthin, Lutein, Gallic Acid and Anacardic acid. The mango really adds a delicious complexity and thickness to the smoothie. If I am making this for me, I need very little honey, but my daughter likes things a tad sweeter. This is also very similar to a mango lassi which I adore. Add chia seeds for extra credit!

1 c orange juice
1 c whole milk yogurt or non-dairy yogurt
