Orange-Ginger Creamsicle Dream Smoothie

This smoothie is so simple to make and ridiculously delicious!  It tastes so good, you’ll think it must be bad for you, but actually it’s filled with fiber, vitamin C and a dose of healthy fats. Ginger is known to stimulate the metabolism, boost the immune system, and soothe the tummy, so it’s a wonderful thing to drink in first thing in the morning. The creamy orange flavor always brings me back to childhood and puts a smile on my face, which is a very nice way to start the day. Enjoy!

Ingredients: 1-2 Servings

2 Navel Oranges, peeled and broken into segments
1 heaping tsp Ginger, chopped
1/4 cup Cashews, preferably soaked 2-4 hours 
1 Medjool Date, pitted
6 Ice Cubes (about 2/3 cup)

Blend everything except the ice until smooth in a high-speed blender*. Add ice and blend again.

 

*If you don’t have a high-speed blender you can add 1/4 cup water to get the blades to turn, omit the fresh ginger and use a pinch of powdered ginger instead. The texture will be grainer than in a high-speed blender, but the flavor will still be great.
