I know - it's cold outside. Punxsutawney Phil just let us know that we have six more weeks of winter. But, with cold winter comes citrus season! Clementines, grapefruits, oranges - they are all in season and absolutely delicious.
When my husband told me that he wanted smoothies for breakfast this week, I knew I wanted to incorporate citrus in the recipe. So I came up with this recipe and named it after one of my favorite childhood treats - Creamsicles! It is so cool and refreshing and it makes you forget for a quick second that it's only 30 degrees outside.
