Try this deliciously refreshing Orange Creamsicle Smoothie to beat this summer heat.
Hello, everyone. It’s getting really hot here in Arizona. With a heat wave in the forecast, foods to cool down are the top priority. My daughter loves various fruit juices, especially the fresh orange juice. I tend to mix it with other fruits and add various other ingredients and to make it more tempting for her.
In the following recipe, I have used freshly squeezed orange juice and heavy whipping cream and turned it into an Orange Creamsicle Smoothie. Now, who doesn’t like an Orange Creamsicle? I love them and my family does too. This smoothie perfectly matches our need for a good refreshing drink to beat the summer heat. I have fond memories of my childhood days, where these orange creamsicles were the highlight of the summer break. After a good play in the water, these were the go-to snacks for me and my cousins. Those were such carefree days, I really miss those at times.
Coming back to the recipe, alternatively, you can also pour this into a popsicle mold and enjoy it as a frozen treat. I make them both ways. You can also add a scoop of vanilla ice cream while serving this smoothie. So add this drink to your to-do list of summer drinks for your family and enjoy it on a hot summer day.
