Orange and Banana Smoothie benefits…

This orange and banana smoothie is loaded with health benefits! The orange is packed with vitamin c to boost your immune system and protect your cells from damage.

How can I up the nutrition in this recipe?

  • Add chia or flax seed! Chia seeds and flax seeds are always great additions to smoothies. Chia seeds are packed with nutrients – i’m talking protein, fiber, antioxidants, and omega 3 fatty acids. Flax seeds are also a great source of omega 3 fatty acids. Both seeds blend wonderfully into a smoothie and will help to keep you fuller for longer too!
  • Add protein powder! This orange smoothie recipe already gets a nice protein boost from the greek yogurt, but you can up it even further with a scoop of protein powder. A scoop of vanilla protein would be delicious and would even add to the creamsicle flavor! Here’s my favorite one.
  • Swap the banana! You could lower the sugar in this recipe by swapping in some avocado for the banana. It is a great swap because it will keep the creaminess that the banana provides. You may want to add an extra touch of sweetness if you try this swap though!

Can this Orange Smoothie Recipe be made vegan?

Yes, this orange smoothie recipe could easily be made vegan! Most ingredients in this recipe are actually already vegan, except for the greek yogurt. Simply keep it out or swap it with your favorite dairy free yogurt!

Orange Banana Smoothie tips…

Follow these tips & tricks to get the best Orange Banana Smoothie everytime!

  • Use a high speed blender! A high speed blender works best here to get the creamiest and dreamiest smoothie. It is especially helpful to prevent orange pulp in your smoothie and if you are using a frozen banana, which I recommend!
  • Freeze your banana! Like mentioned above, I highly recommend you use a frozen banana in this Orange Banana Smoothie. A frozen banana makes for a thick and creamy smoothie! It also keeps your smoothie nice and cold without the need of excess ice.
