Lunch: orange-creamsicle smoothie

As always, start with a base of kale.
One organic Minneola orange, peeled
One-half of one Honeycrisp apple, freshly picked
Unsweetened plain coconut milk
One teaspoon of Bourbon vanilla extract (I go heavy on the vanilla)
Ice cubes
One scoop of collagen powder


I use a Nutribullet so all the fibre is contained in the smoothie, unlike "juicers" that strip the fibre from the fruit. This tastes exactly like those creamsicle ice-cream frozen treats on a stick. This, however, is actually healthy.

One of my favourite smoothies.

Re: Lunch: orange-creamsicle smoothie

I don't recall. What did you do at McDonalds? Did you get a box of 30 McNuggets?

However, my post is legit. I'm showing what a healthy version of a smoothie looks like. Notice that it doesn't contain things like ice-cream or chocolate syrup.

40 nuggets, but I didn't finish it.

Re: Lunch: orange-creamsicle smoothie

That would be plenty. I can't fathom scarfing down that volume of food. Blech.

Re: Lunch: orange-creamsicle smoothie

It was plenty…for another year or so

I honestly think the nuggets are just slightly chicken flavored batter

Re: Lunch: orange-creamsicle smoothie

It was a frosty, orange, creamy delight. What a great lunch, too!

Re: Lunch: orange-creamsicle smoothie

The sweetness from natural fruit is enough for me. Then again, I don't have a sweet tooth and generally don't go for sugary foods. I only add a little bit of fruit, and that seems to be good.

Re: Lunch: orange-creamsicle smoothie

How much kale are you using?

Re: Lunch: orange-creamsicle smoothie

I use kale and spinach as my base, so I fill the Nutribullet container about half up with greens, sometimes using celery, cucumbers, and other roughage. That way, less fruit is needed. I used to measure exactly, but now I just eyeball it.
