Creamsicle Dream Shake

I may have said this before...and i'll probably say it again...but honestly i mean it every time i say it.

This has got to be the best smoothie 
i've ever made!

If you like Orange Julius or Creamsicle-Popsicles, you're sure to go Gah-Gah with one sip....

Creamsicle I'm Dreaming Smoothie

coconut water from one coconut
meat from 1/2 a coconut (plus more if you like :)
2 cara cara peeled oranges
2 pitted medjool dates
4 ice cubes
1/2 cup vanilla almond milk

I'll be honest, i didn't measure my almond milk, so taste as you go but i suppose i put in about 1/2 cup.  I poured it into two cups and shared with the BF, who shouted "orange julius!" upon first sip, but after i tasted it i wished i hadn't shared.  I selfishly would have loved to sip it all to myself!  mm mm mmmmm.



  1. Where do you get medjool dates?
    People's maybe?
