Orange Creamsicle Smoothie
Start your day with a flavorful fruit smoothie. This drink is as delicious as breakfast, but also serves well as an afternoon snack or even a frosty dessert.
- 2 frozen bananas
- 1 fresh banana
- 3 whole chopped oranges, peel and seeds removed
- 1-2 cups coconut water
- Seeds from 1/4 vanilla bean, or 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (not essence)
- If you don't have a high-speed blender, you may prefer to try using 1 cup of fresh orange juice as the oranges may not blend smooth

Place coconut water in the blender. Blend with the oranges until smooth.
Add the frozen and fresh bananas and vanilla and blend again until very smooth and creamy. If you use only fresh bananas instead of frozen the smoothie will still taste wonderful. It just won't be as creamy and dessert-like.
Serve right away and enjoy!
