Real talk: I’ve been obsessed with winter citrus this year.

You know, that ice cream pop you used to purchase from the ice cream truck waaaaaay back when?

You remember what it tastes like upon memory, huh?

I know I do, and I’m not kidding around when I say this smoothie reminds me of it.

To make it even more tantalizing… it’s a smoothie. It’s made with freshly squeezed fruit juice. And I added a little whey protein powder to the mix, too, to get that creaminess.

    You had me when you said it tastes like a creamsicle! 😉 I have a weakness for healthy smoothies that taste just like dessert.

  8. Anna @ Crunchy Creamy Sweet

    I love creamy citrus smoothies in winter. So refreshing!

  9. heather (delicious not gorgeous)

    ahh this is such an amazing color! does the maple syrup flavor come through a lot (and if it does, how does it pair with the citrus)? i love maple syrup but sometimes i find it a bit strong.

    • Erin

      Thanks, Heather! To answer your question, I didn’t think the maple syrup flavor came through too strong. It paired nicely with the citrus and balanced the bitter notes of the grapefruit for me. (If you don’t find grapefruit bitter, then you probably don’t need any extra sweetener!) That said, you can certainly use less or use a different kind of sweetener if you think the maple syrup will be too much for you. If you do that, please let me know how it turns out!
