Waking up to an orange creamsicle smoothie is the best way to make sure you start off on the right foot!
I love trying and discovering new products. I was first introduced to Oatmilk when I was with a
photography client who served me an Oatmilk latte as she does not drink dairy. I was surprised at how
thick and creamy the latte was. Ever since then, I’ve had my eye out for Oatmilk for me to try at home.
In my experience, not all Oatmilks are alike. I was expecting to be able to get that super creamy, rich
latte, but many brands left me with watered down coffee with small bits of oat. Not the best experience,
but I was still hopeful that I’d find a brand that I loved.
Silk Oat Yeah Oatmilk was one Oatmilk that actually met my expectations of a flavorful and creamy milk
alternative. It is great in coffee, but lately I’ve been rocking it in my smoothies like this orange
I like to add more depth to my orange creamsicle smoothie than just the typical banana, orange, and
milk. I find that adding frozen peach and pineapple thickens the smoothie, while adding another layer of
flavor to the orange.
It doesn’t take over the orange, instead it enhances its flavor for a really amazing orange creamsicle
smoothie. The banana enhances the vanilla while adding creaminess. The yogurt adds protein to the
smoothie and more creaminess. For more vanilla flavor, I love using the Silk Oat Yeah in Vanilla. You can
also use the Original flavor. For a chocolate orange smoothie, they also have a chocolate Oatmilk that is
amazing. You can purchase these from Walmart.
You can use any type of oranges you have around. Navel oranges are very popular, but during winter
when there are several types of orange at the store, I like to change things up. Two of my favorites to
use is blood orange and cara cara.
If you want to add more to your smoothie, a touch of zest really packs in the orange flavor while other
ingredients like spinach add a bit more nutrition without affecting the flavor!
- 1 ripe frozen banana
