The winter doldrums really set in for me after the holidays, actually, before holiday break even ends; I usually dread the first few days into the New Year. Even though I crave the fresh start and newness of the season, I miss the warm and cozy holiday feels, foods, and glow from the Christmas tree.

And then, just like that, a day or two in, I remember that we’re in the midst of one of the best seasons of the year: citrus season!

There are so many possibilities and so many flavors! Sweet and savory, meals and even cocktails… citrus is one of the foods that can be used every single way, from salads to roasts. Hence why I love it so much!

My favorite citrus pick is a ridiculously delicious HoneyBell. Oh how I love them so! The sweetness cannot be beat. It’s like I’m eating nature’s candy and savoring every bite.

When I’m not segmenting these babies and enjoying them for a snack, I love to make a creamy vanilla and coconut orange smoothie. The brightness perks me up in the morning, not to mention it tastes like dessert.

This orange smoothie contains so many of my favorite ingredients. We have coconut milk, Greek yogurt, frozen bananas (my go-to for milkshake-like smoothies), fresh HoneyBell juice, vanilla beans, and a very teeny pinch of salt to bring all the flavor out. I’m absolutely obsessed with drinking this right now because it tastes like the tropics.
