This creamy clementine smoothie combines clementines with almond milk, a banana and chia seeds for a delicious smoothie that tastes like a creamsicle. Vegan and gluten-free. 

I make protein smoothies all the time. They’re super easy to whip up and a great way to get in a good amount of protein and healthy carbs after a workout. Plus, I like that they’re super portable. I work from home most days but it’s still nice to have a breakfast I can carry up the stairs to my office.

As most of you probably know, I’ve been on a clementine kick lately, which totally inspired the smoothie I’m sharing today. It’s a little untraditional as clementines aren’t a fruit I add to smoothies very often, however if you give this smoothie a whirl, I think you’ll be delighted at how delicious it is.

To keep from getting bored, I’m always trying different smoothie combinations but tend to stick with using 1/2 a frozen banana, almond milk and protein powder as my base. You really can’t go wrong with this combo but if you hate bananas (I personally don’t know how it’s possible), you can substitute 1/2 cup of frozen mango in it’s place. It gives smoothies a similar texture and sweetness.

This smoothie is not only tasty, but it’s super easy to make (only 5 ingredients). In addition, it has the perfect amount of calories (around 370 with the protein powder) and a good mix of healthy sugar, protein and fat. I like it for breakfast or a post workout recovery drink.

  1. I made a similar one a few weeks ago – the only addition mine had was vanilla. It was my smoothie replica of an orange julius!!

  2. Looks like you love clementines almost as much as I do! 😉 I’ve actually thought about making a smooth with them. I haven’t had many smoothies lately due to the cold weather, but I really want to give this a try.
