Creamsicle Breakfast Smoothie

Creamsicle Breakfast Smoothie

4 Reviews
From: EatingWell Magazine, January/February 2013

Though it tastes like those iconic vanilla-and-orange popsicles, this creamsicle breakfast smoothie recipe is a balanced breakfast with carbohydrates, protein and, thanks to the addition of coconut water, essential electrolytes. Coconut water serves up more than 10 percent of your daily dose of potassium—an electrolyte you lose through sweat—in every cup, making it a great hydrator for light workouts. Plus, this creamy orange-mango smoothie only contains about 30 mg of sodium per cup, whereas sports drinks usually deliver about 110 mg of sodium per cup.

If you like your smoothie thick, freeze you coconut water in an ice cube tray!

Frozen juice concentrate? I don't consider this eating well unless it has fresh, whole ingredients. Cons: Too much sugar

Pretty Good Made this as written except I used fresh orange segments instead of mangoes so I could stay with the orange theme. This is a tasty drink, just remember, it's not sweet! Because it wasn't sweet, my husband didn't like it, but I am used to smoothies without added sugar, so I liked it. I would make this again. Pros: nice consistency Cons: not very sweet

easy and delicious This is a great smoothie for a quick snack or drink for breakfast. I have a big appetite so I had this with some bacon and eggs and it was great and less than 500 calories Pros: the whole thing Cons: hard to find coconut water at my local store
