Melon Creamsicle Green Smoothie

Drive-Thru chocolate frosty’s with a long plastic spoon.

–These are the daydreams that come to mind as I enjoy my frosty green smoothie on this lovely morning. Here I sit decked out in flannel from head to toe, wool slippers and a fleece house coat to boot. It may be -15 out yonder, but that doesn’t matter inside my delicious creamsicle smoothie bowl.

Creamy, with the classic flavours of vanilla and citrus, this just might be the perfect twist on your go-to breakfast smoothie.

With this guy, I made a special effort to freeze the spinach, orange, melon, and banana before hand. This gives it an extra frosty texture…the kind that sends unnecessary shivers down your housecoat. (but sooo worth it when your spooning it luxuriously into your mouth)melon2

Have a lovely Thursday everyone 🙂

Ingredients

  • 1/2 navel orange, frozen
  • 1/2 large banana, frozen
  • 1/3 cup melon (or more orange)
  • one heaping handful baby spinach
  • 2/3 ish cup almond milk
  • extra dash or more of water to get things moving

+ whatever add-ins you like. I generally use hemp hearts, a  little vanilla protein powder, cashews, sunflower seeds, etc 🙂
