I think I’m fully and completely in summer mode. I haven’t quite gotten Michigan on board with this whole idea yet, buuuut I’m working on it. A little bird (aka my neighbor who checks the weather religiously) told me that tomorrow is supposed to be warm. 

To help us make our way through the muddle of the never-ending Michigan winter, we’ll bridge the gap with this pretty pale orange smoothie. It is bright and sunshiny to remind us that warmer days are ahead.  But, it makes use of the clementines we’ve been eating all winter long.

I know you have a crate sitting on your counter.

This smoothie uses three of those bright orange flavorful clementines. And then, of course, lots of great vanilla flavor. You already know that vanilla and orange (or clementine) combination is one of my favorites. I’m going for the orange creamsicle flavor here.

Need proof that I’m obsessed?

And now something you can sip on!
