Happy Friday everyone – raise your hand if you’re doing a Friday dance!? Just me? Just fine. I’m still flying high from the sweet, 5 ingredient smoothie recipe I’m sharing with you today. Razzy Navel Smoothies are going to get you out of this winter funk and straight onto a warm beach, if only in your mind. Tiny paper umbrella optional!
Seriously though, this might be the shortest post in IGE history. Just one process pic, people! Not much to a smoothie recipe besides throwing stuff in a blender then pushing, uh, on. Love it. That said, let me elaborate on that “stuff” real quick.
A couple years ago when Ben and I went to Jamaica, the resort’s beach bar plunked onto the warm white sand (which we always laid our loungers next to, naturally,) was abuzz all day long with blended fresh fruit smoothie/cocktail combos like Pina Coladas and Fuzzy Navels. I’ve been thinking about that tropical paradise a lot lately, courtesy of our current chilly circumstances, and was inspired to mix up my own beachy smoothie at home – sans alcohol – to sip as a light and fruity breakfast, or perfectly refreshing snack.
Razzy Navel Smoothie is a twist on the classic fuzzy navel combo of peach and orange. I added frozen raspberries to the mix for a hit of bright color, then blended them with frozen peaches, a fresh orange, a banana, and orange juice. This cocktail-inspired combo is so, so delicious. I loved the banana for giving the smoothie an even more tropical taste, but if you don’t do bananas you could swap in raspberry or peach Greek yogurt to get the thickness they usually lend.
Put some color into your weekend with this easy, sweet and fruity smoothie. (Oh, and if you’re looking for a true tropical island vacation experience, add a splash of peach schnapps or white rum!)
Simply add 1/4 cup orange juice (I like Simply Orange which has no added sugar,) 1 peeled orange, 1 fresh or frozen banana, and 1/2 cup each frozen raspberries and peaches, into a blender then blend until smooth, and pour into a tall glass.
I am seriously smiling thinking about this smoothie. Sweet, healthy, and refreshing. Like I said, add Greek yogurt to replace the banana and/or to give it more staying power, or enjoy as-is for a nice light treat, then sip away while dreaming of warmer days! :)
