Sunshine Smoothie by @UpsideDownPear

Have you ever made a smoothie with an orange for the base? And I mean the actual orange, not just the juice. If you have, then you know how amazing they are. I was skeptical when I first hear about this figuring the smoothie would be too thick and pulpy. I know that there’s juice in an orange, but to actually use the whole thing…eh…there were definite doubts.

However, after making a few of these, I now see the light and will be buying way more oranges to stock up on some vitamin C. Not only do the smoothies have a bright and tropical feel to them, but you could also add some greens to this and not change the flavor at all. This way you get both your fruits and veggies in at the same time! After all this time cooking, I still find it difficult to find time for veggies. It’s usually here’s the main dish and that’s it. What sides??

Now I don’t feel so bad. I think I might begin to whip some of this up the night before and have it for breakfast the next day. What a great quick meal idea! Let me know what you like to add to smoothies and if you’ve ever thrown in a whole orange (minus the peel).
