A refreshing, easy smoothie for an on-the-go meal or nourishing treat.  These classic, nostalgic flavors will make you smile. 

 

INGREDIENTS

1 cup full-fat coconut milk*

1/2 cup organic orange juice

1 scoop vanilla Paleo Meal, Pure Paleo Protein, Whey Cool Protein, or Organic Pea Protein** 

1/2 cup ice

1 tablespoon coconut oil or MCT oil

1-2 drops wild orange essential oil or a pinch of orange zest

 

Add all ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth.  If using a high-speed blender, add the protein after the rest of the ingredients are pureed to ensure proteins are not damaged.  Pulse the smoothie to incorporate the delicate proteins.  

*Avocado and filtered water make a nice substitution for milk.  Keep in mind that healthy fats are key for proper body function, blood sugar regulation, and satiety.
