Orange cream smoothie

The clean eating diet I am currently following suggests having a source of protein at every meal and snack, all 5-6 of them each day. Sometimes I have a hard time wanting to choke down another 4 ounces of chicken, turkey, tuna or egg whites, so I have had to get creative. 

Smoothies are a great way to pack in the protein without having to eat a meat source, and they double as an awesome treat in the summer when it's sweltering out and all you really want is ice cream. 

Tonight I fixed Billy and I this recipe, and you know what, it was nice!

Orange cream protein smoothie
Makes 2 servings, share with a loved one or save the rest for later!
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder, I used Designer Whey 
  • 1 medium orange, peeled and sectioned
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened plain almond/soy/or skim milk, I went with almond
  • 1/4 cup 100% citrus juice, I used tangerine because it's what I had
  • 10 ice cubes

Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth and frothy. I like to give it a little longer run on the liquefy setting so it adds more air and feels like you have more to drink. But that's just me ;)
