Orange Creamsicle Smoothie
Great Dessert Alternative
Replace Iced Coffee On The Road
Orange Creamsicle Smoothie was inspired by our nephew. My little one went to sleepover with his cousins. Our nephew made this smoothie for kids for dessert. He used ice-cream. I never planned to make this recipe at home because I want to save it for our nephew. I want this great memory always tied back to him. He owns it.
Well, several months later, while we were doing our routine grocery shopping one day, my son asked me to make it at home. How could you not give in to your child when you know that you can easily achieve this, right? So, this recipe was born.

Where To Store The Leftover?
What to do if there is leftover? It is almost impossible. But it happens.
I tried using both plastic and stainless steel thermos. They both worked very well as long as you keep them refrigerated. Here are the differences:
- Plastic thermos - store in freezer. Sit in room temperature for 5-10 minutes before serving to allow it melt a little bit. Then, enjoy your smoothie with a spoon. If you want to make ahead of time for serving a big party, this is the way to go.
- Stainless steel thermos - store in fridge. Surprisingly, the smoothie consistency stays over 24 hours. Very impressive, huh? If you travel for a long trip on the road during summer time, bring along this smoothie is way better than a cup of expensive iced coffee.
