Orange Smoothie, very UN-green.

My kiddos are tired of green smoothies.  Not that they don't like them, they're just ready for variety.  Yes even kids, who might eat chicken nuggets every day until they're 27, occasionally like to change things up.

So I made the smoothie orange instead of green.  Go me!  And they slurped it down.  That's a win!

Here's what I did:

Orange Smoothie

1 orange, peeled and seeds removed
2 carrots, or the equivalent in baby carrots, roughly chopped
1 fresh mango, seeded and peeled
1/2 c frozen peach slices
1/4 c pumpkin puree
1/2 inch fresh ginger, peeled
1 cup coconut milk, or non-dairy milk of choice

Add all to blender and process on high until smooth.  Add more milk if needed to reach desired consistency.

All smoothies are best enjoyed cold!  If you lack any of the above ingredients, feel free to sub in whatever orange or yellow produce you have on hand.  Sweet potatoes, squash, corn, be adventurous!

This recipe is nut free, egg free, dairy free, soy free, and delicious.

Inspired by:


  1. Simple but delicious, I'll have to add this one to my list. thanks for posting.

  2. Great one! What I like about this smoothies is that it can act as a natural antiseptic and anti-fungal agent for skin disorders like fungal infections.


Always happy to hear from you, but please remember to play nice!
