For those of you wondering what a smoothie bowl is, don’t worry, it’s a relatively new thing. Smoothie bowls are just like a smoothie only they’re served a tiny bit thicker and with some delicious toppings to make a kind of breakfast gazpacho.
Think of a slightly melted frozen yogurt situation and you’ll have the texture and consistency of what we have going on here with this orange creamsicle smoothie bowl!
Of course just like with smoothies that you drink with a straw you have some options here and you can control the thickness and consistency by blending for more or less time, adding more frozen ingredients, etc.
What do I need to make an orange creamsicle flavored smoothie?
This recipe uses frozen yogurt, milk, banana, lime juice, orange juice, and both orange and lime zest!
That’s all it takes to create this delicious masterpiece. The fresh squeezed juices really make this a delicious treat and the zest adds all the extra aroma and flavor.
Use whatever kind of yogurt you like and freeze it! We usually use plain or vanilla Greek yogurt and freeze it and then use it for smoothies and smoothie bowls. It means we don’t have to water down the recipes with ice cubes and it gives the smoothie bowl a nice thick texture and creamy consistency.
