A quickie recipe for you today – this orange coconut smoothie has become an easy favourite since oranges came into season. It’s a blend of orange, coconut milk, hemp hearts, cinnamon, and a couple other good things. It tastes a little like a less sweet creamsicle and it’s a welcome break from my usual winter smoothie, plain old banana and peanut butter.
I chose coconut milk (not just the cream) but a good homemade nut milk would be good too, just avoid the more watery store bought plant milks here. You could certainly add greens to this recipe if your blender can handle it. Mine leaves chunks of banana behind, never mind blending greens, hah.
Looks like it’s going to be an orange week, I accidentally planned five orange/orange coloured recipes for this week! Just the one photo today, I think you all know what a smoothie looks like.
