Mandarin Orange Coconut Creamsicle Protein Smoothie (Video)

I absolutely LOVE the Perfect 10 protein smoothie from Juice Stop. It’s the perfect blend of orangy (may or may not be an actual word), creamy heaven. Now that the weather has decided to finally warm up, I was ready to try to recreate this heavenly concoction at home. The Mandarin Orange Coconut Creamsicle Protein Smoothie I created is even better than the expensive, sugar loaded version from my former favorite smoothie shop!

While finding the exact recipe used by the smoothie chain was impossible, I did find that the main ingredients were orange juice, orange sherbet and yogurt. I knew immediately that I wanted to try to find a healthier substitute for the orange sherbet (I want to feel GOOD about my protein smoothie!), and try to keep any additional/artificial sweeteners to a minimum.

To make your own Mandarin Orange Coconut Creamsicle Protein Smoothie, you will need: 1/3 cup coconut milk solids, 1 tablespoon coconut milk liquid, 1/2 cup frozen mandarin oranges, 3 tablespoons frozen pulp-free orange juice concentrate, 1 cup vanilla non-fat Greek yogurt, and 2 tablespoons protein powder (I use unflavored pea protein, vanilla would work as well.)

As I’ve mentioned several times before, I LOVE my magic bullet! I use it to make all my protein shakes and smoothies. It’s also great for frozen cocktails (or mocktails) like Frozen Grasshopper Shooters. I use the magic bullet to puree tomatoes when I don’t have any tomato sauce, etc. It is super handy, easy to use and store, and dishwasher safe! I traded in my full-size blender years ago when I got my magic bullet and I’ve never regretted it.

That being said, throw all the ingredients into your favorite blender and enjoy!

  • I love my magic bullet too!! It makes smoothie-making so much easier and minimizes clean-up! Speaking of smoothies, this one looks spectacular! I was a big fan of creamsicles as a kid, so I’m sure I’ll love this big kid version with the added protein. Thanks for sharing, Erica!

    • It’s hard to believe this smoothie is good for you, it tastes sooo good! That’s awesome you have a magic bullet, they make it so easy to enjoy protein shakes and smoothies everyday. Enjoy, Alyssa!

  • Not just for workouts, this looks perfect for lounging on the deck on a warm summer Sunday morning! I’ve never heard of coconut solids. Do they go by a different name by any chance? I’ve seen creamed coconut in blocks. Is that the same?

    • You know when you open a can of coconut milk, you can pour off the liquid and then you’re left with “solids” in the bottom? That’s what I mean, might need to edit that to make it more clear, thanks for pointing that out, Romain! Enjoy!

  • This reminds me of sunny, warm days! I’ve always loved creamsicles so this healthy smoothie is awesome, especially with the vitamin C and protein in this! Thanks Erica!

  • Oh my…I have this really really bad addiction to orange creamsicles haha :O Now that i can have this in a drink form, this might be my new go-to drink for the summer!! I absolutely love that there’s coconut in this too!! I need to try this out..pronto haha! 😀
