Orange Cream Smoothie Recipe Just For You

// This post is brought to you by Kohl’s.  Thank you for your kindness and support of the sponsors that keep Petit Elefant running. //

Today we’re talking orange cream smoothies.  Because I love you.  Because citrus is delightful.  Because we all know orange creamies are the best, so it only follows that orange cream smoothies are a dream.

We’ll get to the recipe in a second, but let’s start at the beginning of the story.

This week I went to Kohl’s to buy myself a Mother’s Day present.  Because if I’ve learned anything in life so far it’s this: sometimes you have to make your own dreams come true.  I didn’t know exactly what my dreams were for Mother’s Day, but I did spend a good long time wandering around Kohl’s thinking about it.

I flirted with some gorgeous flowy summer dresses, made heavy eye contact with a pair of suede loafers in the shoe department, tried out nearly every perfume in cosmetics, and had a hot and heavy affair with a delicate, stunning diamond eternity band.  But in the end, I came home with a new Ninja Blender.

It’s not terribly sexy, a new blender, but it makes me feel all lit up inside, and it fits into my current life philosophy.  Part of my new-found purpose in life is learning to let it go which means that as I’m organizing my house one room at a time, I’m getting rid of a lot of stuff.  I didn’t want to add to that with clothes, shoes, or jewelry.  I’m going to great lengths to simplify and cleanse my life, to eat better and exercise more, and a good blender (make that an excellent blender) makes eating healthy a whole lot easier.  So in celebration of healthy living, I created an orange cream smoothie just for your drinking pleasure. Okay, this recipe in particular isn’t crazy healthy, but we all deserve a treat now and again, and it’s the thought that counts.

Recipe below!
