It’s slowly (read: ever so slowly that it snowed yesterday) getting up to normal Spring temps around here and while I am excited about a slew of Spring things, there’s one thing I’m really excited about: smoothie season!

It may not sound like a thing, but my brain seems to reject smoothies for the most part during the colder months. So every year, when the temperatures start to stay above freezing, I start thinking of the delicious smoothies I’ll be making. Last year was the year of green smoothies for me because I finally found a way I can enjoy them without gagging. But this year?

This is the year of smoothies with chia seeds!

I’ve loved chia seeds for a long time, but rarely use them (no idea why.) So I was really excited to find another use for them. Especially one that becomes a daily staple for me as Summer inches closer!

And this orange creamsicle chia smoothie?

Oh my goodness. It’s like dessert in a cup.

Creamsicles used to be my jam when I was younger. Who am I kidding – they still are. But if you’re looking for a healthier way to enjoy that delicious blend of vanilla and orange? This is it.

Now fair warning: it does have oranges in it (not just orange juice.) Which means pulp. So it’s not exactly the smoothest of smoothies. Do not let this stop you from making this amazing smoothie! The pulp is where all of the good for you ingredients are.

Tons of vitamins.

Extra minerals.

Lots of fiber. 

ALL good things! Then you pair it with almond milk, chia seeds, and orange juice and it’s this dreamy creamsicle mixture that’s actually really good for you. And it’s a fantastic way to start the morning. Or enjoy lunch. Or end the day. Really … any time is a good time to enjoy this orange creamsicle chia smoothie, I swear.
