Why This Mandarin Orange Smoothie is Fab

If you love smoothie bowls, this recipe is for you. I’ve been obsessed with smoothies lately, and recently I was set on the idea of creating a mandarin smoothie bowl reminiscent of those orange Creamsicle I had in my childhood.

I had some coconut milk and coconut yogurt in my fridge, and I thought the creaminess of these ingredients would blend nicely with some in-season mandarin oranges.

The yogurt perfectly balances out the citric acid in the orange, and I added vanilla extract to sweeten the deal without adding any sugar.

And of course, smoothie bowls have toppings! So I added some of my faves: pistachios and chia seeds for protein and fiber, as well as shredded coconut and mandarin orange wedges because they’re delicious.

Get Major Nutritional Benefits

Now, while this thick and creamy coconut yogurt smoothie bowl is delicious, it also has nutritional benefits to highlight. What kind of a blog post would this be without those?

You’ll find whole mandarin oranges in this smoothie bowl, not orange juice. The fresh fruit provides vitamin C, while the pistachios and chia seeds offer protein and fiber. In fact, this orange Creamsicle smoothie bowl provides 14 grams of fiber, or 56% of your daily need!

I usually add nut butter such as almond or peanut butter to my smoothies. However, I decided to add healthy fats in the form of crunchy pistachios to this breakfast bowl.

The delicious, creamy taste comes from the coconut milk and coconut yogurt. I’ll be honest with you: I typically prefer a milk with a higher amount of protein, such as soy or almond milk.

But I couldn’t resist the creaminess of coconut milk in this recipe, and you get plenty of protein (9 grams) from other sources. So there’s no need to add protein powder or anything like that.

As you would do with frozen berries, once you add the oranges you’ll need to blend until smooth and creamy.

Ready to get blending??! Go ahead, and if you want to mix up your smoothie routine this week, also give my Vanilla Bean Smoothie, my Orange Strawberry Smoothie, and my Smoothie with Banana a taste!

This vegan smoothie bowl is a nutritious breakfast. If you want to make it a bit more decadent for a weekend morning, you can add some shaved dark chocolate as an additional smoothie bowl topping.

And if you’re looking for other vegan recipes, give my smoothie with grape juice and my pizza with mushrooms a try.
