Adding fresh oranges to smoothies is a great way to mix up any breakfast routine. This recipe features blood oranges, the less acidic, tangier sister of the common orange. With a touch of almond milk, the smoothie becomes a frosty blend reminiscent of the Creamsicle of summers past—but don’t worry, this one’s super healthy and perfect for a midday meal, post-workout snack, or healthy dessert.
