Real talk: I’ve been obsessed with winter citrus this year.
Like, tossing it into every kind of recipe obsessed.
And I’m so thrilled to be bringing y’all yet another winter citrus smoothie because this one is different… and quite honestly, it tastes like a healthy CREAMSICLE.
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.
The folks at Naked Nutrition sent me their Grass Fed Whey Protein Powder to try out… and goodness, am I glad they did. It worked beautifully in this Creamy Winter Citrus Smoothie and added that much-needed creaminess to elevate this from a mixture of fruit juices to a delicious way to start your day.
This protein powder comes grass fed cows’ milk, which has no artificial flavors, colors or sweeteners. It’s GMO-free, soy-free, gluten-free and growth hormone-free.
Also? Each serving has 25 grams of protein! Huzzah!
