Today is National Orange Juice Day, and I thought this Orange Dreamsicle Protein Shake would be perfect! I honestly can’t remember I had a Dreamsicle but I was in the mood for something orangey but not overly sweet. I love vanilla and orange and the first thing that came to mind was a Dreamsicle.
Orange Dreamsicle Protein Shake
3/4c unsweetened almond milk or coconut milk (use Silk Unsweetened Original Almond Milk this time, also like Coconut Milk)
zest of one orange
1- 1 1/2 orange juiced or one whole peeled orange and 1/2 an orange juiced (I like to use the whole orange option)
1 scoop vanilla protein powder (used Vega One French Vanilla)
cup of ice
*If using fresh squeezed orange juice and omitting zest use 1/2 cup of orange juice.
Put first 4 ingredients in a Vitamix or high speed blender and blend. Add ice and blend until smooth. Enjoy!
