  1. This smoothie looks so creamy and refreshing! I love that it is light too – such a perfect way to indulge without over-indulging!

  2. What a groovy smoothie, Chelsea! I know I did a creamsicle-esque smoothie in the winter when I needed a high dose of vitamin c (colds, man, they are the worst) but I love how you “skinny-ified yours and how creamy it looks! ๐Ÿ˜€ YUM!

  4. Hi! I’m not, nor ever have been a fan of creamy orange, but it does sound good. What I really wanted to say, and you don’t have to post this, is I love the napkin, towel or whatever the blue & green fabric is! It would make a beautiful scarf! So what is it and were did you find it?!

  5. Hi, do you happen to know the nutritional information on this, like Carbs, Proteins, Calories? Thanks in advance.
