A nice cool, fruity, and refreshing smoothie can be just what the naturopathic doctor ordered on a hot summer day.

Enjoy this healthy take on the orange creamsicle popsiclein smoothie format.

The purpose of this smoothie recipe is to make your taste buds scream in delight as you reminisce about the good ‘ole days of popsicles and summertime. Not only does it satisfy your taste buds and memories, but it also delivers incredible nutrients without any harmful ingredients like added sugar or dairy.


  • 3 medium-size oranges, peeled or juiced
  • 4 ounces almond or coconut milk
  • 4 ounces coconut water
  • 4 ounces young coconut meat
  • 1 cup ice
  • Optional: 1 cup raw yogurt or dairy kefir


Peel oranges and add to good quality blender (if you want more fiber) or put through juicer for a cleaner texture, and then add to blender.

Add remaining ingredients and top with pure water if necessary.

Blend and add liquid or coconut meat to adjust texture to your preference.

This smoothie is great to drink any time of the day. Or put it in popsicle trays if you want a healthy cold treat for the kids (including you)!
