    Creamsicle Breakfast Smoothie

    Creamsicle Breakfast Smoothie

    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.

    This Recipe Is:
    Ingredients
    Prep: 5 minutes | Total Time: 5 minutes
    • 1   cup
      cold pure coconut water, without added sugar or flavor (see Tip)
    • 1   cup
      nonfat vanilla Greek yogurt
    • 1   cup
      frozen or fresh mango chunks
    • 3   tablespoons
      frozen orange juice concentrate
    • 2   cups
      ice
    Instructions
    1. Blend coconut water, yogurt, mango, orange juice concentrate and ice in a blender until smooth.

     

    Tip
    Tip: Look for pure coconut water without added sugar in the refrigerated section near other flavored waters or near shelf-stable waters and natural fruit juices.
