This orange banana smoothie is a creamy citrus blend of oranges, carrots, and bananas for a burst of flavor to start your morning off right! I love smoothies, I make one every morning. Although my all time favorite smoothie is my Strawberry Smoothie, I sometimes like to change it up a bit. And this Orange Banana smoothie is the perfect smoothie to change things up, it’s like drinking a glass of sunshine in the morning.

This orange banana smoothie is bursting with flavors of oranges, carrots, and bananas, perfect way to start your day off right. It’s so delicious, it might be my new second favorite smoothie!

Orange Banana Smoothie Recipe by Deliciously Sprinkled

JUST SOME SMOOTHIE MAKING TIPS:

 USE FROZEN FRUIT: I like to use frozen bananas instead of ice cubes in my smoothies. And to make it super easy, I just  buy the frozen bananas in the frozen section of my grocery store, because I’m all about making things quicker and easier. If you don’t have frozen bananas, you can use 2 ripe bananas and add 1 cup of ice cubes instead.

FILL UP YOUR BLENDER: When putting the ingredients in your blender, layer the ingredients softest to hardest (frozen). So for this orange smoothie, add the orange juice, greens, yogurt, and honey first. Then add the frozen bananas and carrots. Lastly, top with the orange zest.

    I am loving this smoothie combo. I never thought to add carrots, but it makes total sense. I wish I were on the beach.
