Creamsicle  Smoothie

 

 

 

 

INGREDIENTS:

 

 

2 cups orange juice 

1 cup water

2 tablespoons powdered coffee creamer

1/2 cup sugar

14 - 16 full sized ice cubes

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 orange peel for extra flavor (optional)

 

 


DIRECTIONS:
 

 

Place all ingredients into blender and blend on high until no ice chunks are left.

 

Makes about (2) tall glasses.

 

 

NOTICE: 

I don't recommend replacing the powdered creamer with milk,

as the acid in the orange juice will curdle the milk!

 

 

STRAWBERRY CREAM SMOOTHIE VERSION:

Replace orange juice with strawberries (or even any kind of berry).

 

PEACH CREAM SMOOTHIE VERSION:

Replace orange juice with canned or fresh peaches.
