Skinny Creamsicle Milkshake

It's hot outside.
I don't like it.
Yes. I'm one of those people. The only time I don't complain about the weather is spring and fall. Those seasons are my favorite. None of those yucky cold and hot extremes that come with winter and summer, thank you very much.
Anyway.... I decided if I'm going to survive the heat then I better come up with some more skinny milkshakes. (See our others HERE!)
This one was super simple and tastes so refreshing and, for only 165 calories, you can have it all day long without any guilt. 
(According to Myfitnesspal each serving (recipe makes 2 servings) is - 165 calories, 34 carbs, 2 fat, and 6 protein.)

Skinny Creamsicle Milkshake

1 large seedless orange
1/2 cup 0 fat, plain Greek yogurt
4 Tbsp frozen orange juice concentrate
1/3 cup 1% milk
ice cubes
4 Tbsp light Cool Whip

First - Peel the orange and break it into sections - being careful to remove as much of the pith as possible. Freeze until very well frozen. Also, freeze the Greek yogurt.
Place the frozen orange sections, frozen yogurt, frozen orange juice concentrate and milk into a blender with a handful of ice cubes.

Process until smooth and creamy. Be sure to stop and scrape down the sides as necessary. (Add more ice cubes if you want it thicker or a little more milk if you want it thinner.)
Pour into 2 tall glasses and top each with 2 Tbsp of Cool Whip.
Serve immediately.

Mmmmm.....creamsicle-y goodness!
What I did with my second serving was freeze it in a ziplock bag without the cool whip. Then, the next day, I took it to work and simply blended it in the blender at work with a little water until it was smooth and then served it with the Cool Whip. 
It made a great dessert and also made an awesome breakfast with almost zero fuss. 
I mean, who wouldn't want a huge creamy milkshake for only 165 calories?
