Sunshine Smoothie with Greek Yogurt and Orange

orangesmoothie-0243 I’ve got quite a few reasons to make a toast today. First and foremost I toast the beauty of life that shows itself in the form of a majestic sunny day here in Malaga. I love this city and I’m in love with Andalucia, a region in Southern Spain that gives us the most juicy and tasty fruits I ever tasted.  And great wine, food, music… etc… yes, I know I’ve already sung the praises of this country but I can’t help myself – I need to repeat positive things “out loud” so to remind myself how lucky I am.

Another reason to celebrate is the Pinterest Breakfast Club campaign I’m so honored to be part of. Make sure to check it out, it’s great inspiration!

I can’t believe PinterestUK is featuring my Smoothies Operator board together with the Pin Picks from prestigious foodies such as The Happy Pear, Great British Chefs, Pea Soup and Monica Shaw. Since I am contributing to the campaign with a collection of my favorite smoothies I thought this was a good occasion to share a breakfast smoothie I came up with while I was in Napoli. A creamy and light delight.

orangesmoothie-0221 If you read my latest post, you would understand why I am enjoying these lovely sunny days so much. I have to soak up the sun as much as I can. Desculpeme now, I gotta go. Off into the warm sunset I go….

    This looks beautiful, I love creamy/citrusy combos.
    I’m a little jealous of where you live. I have just been learning all about Andalucia in my study of fortified wines. It sounds like such a magical part of the world.

    It drives me crazy when people comment who haven’t tried the recipe. I tried this recipe and it was pretty good, would prefer the flax seed ground prior to blending into smoothie. Used maple syrup and a whole orange, was sweet enough with the orange shining through and creamy banana texture.
