One of my favourite ice cream bars growing up was fudgesicles. Obviously, anything chocolate wins.
But my second favourite was orange 'creamsicles': the ones with the creamy orange center coated in a layer of vanilla ice cream. Remember those?
This smoothie reminds me of those creamsicle bars each time. Except, and it should go without saying, these are eons better for you. Only 4 whole-food ingredients and it takes less than 5 minutes to make.
Who needs a delorian to zap back to the mid-90s when you have this smoothie?
Now excuse me as I play some MC Hammer and jam while doing the running man dance. Happy sipping!
