Ice cream + popsicle = creamsicle. And orange is the most iconic flavor. In order to imitate the orange creamsicle flavor in our own smoothie recipe, we’ll use oranges, yogurt, vanilla, cream, and frozen mango. I mean, the easiest way might be to just throw some of the frozen treats into the blender. But it would also be rather sweet, and I am trying to keep it a bit healthier.

Ingredients for a creamsicle smoothie recipe in the blender

I say a bit healthier because smoothies tend to have a lot of fruit. Which is good, but they also do have a high sugar content. So you have to be careful. Though it is possible to hide other things within smoothies as well. We had some friends who would add spinach to make green smoothies and call them Hulk smoothies so their kids would love them. And it worked.

For this smoothie, I have added carrots into the mix before if I have them on hand and wanted an extra punch of veggies. The Vitamix does quick work of everything and you are left with a delicious drink.

Smoothie Recipes

Smoothies are some of my favorite things to make. In fact, I first created a website dedicated to smoothies long before starting this one. It may or may not still be up and running today. And this recipe may or may not be adapted from one I have on that site. Because it is important to recycle.

But making smoothies is easy peasy lemon squeezy. Or I guess orange squeezy in this case. You don’t need to be extremely accurate in measurements and it will still taste basically the same. And to make it you basically just toss it all in the blender, fire it up, and it does all the work.

The hardest part may be remembering to clean up the blender after making the smoothie. The easiest way to do this is by throwing some water and dish soap into the blender container after having poured out the smoothie. Then put it on the blender and turn up the power to have it almost wash itself. A little more scrubbing and rinsing and it is basically done. Except for if you ever blend up blueberries. Cause little pieces of blueberry skin seem to stick to the sides of the blender no matter what.

Orange Creamsicle as a Smoothie

Anyone could probably guess a lot of the ingredients for this smoothie recipe. Oranges, obviously because of the whole orange part of orange creamsicle. Vanilla for the vanilla ice cream center. The yogurt and cream for the creaminess factor. And ice to make the smoothie thicker.

But the mango is a bit of a surprise. I mean why is there mango in an orange creamsicle smoothie recipe?

I think that it helps with the texture, lending to the smooth creaminess of it all. In my opinion, it also has a complementary flavor. Though if you are like my mom and hate mango then it may be best to leave it out and substitute more ice to replace it. I, on the other hand, love mango. And it is always welcome in my smoothies.

So let me know what you think of having mango in this smoothie. And whether or not you think that the ratio is off and it overpowers the orange too much. Tell me if you change or adapt the amount of mango at all when you try this recipe for yourself. Then pair it with some german pancakes to make it a full brunch spread.
