I took this unspoken challenge from the kids and I've been trying to do different fruits and veggies in their juices and get more kale into their meals. The other day, I went super far from the normal and did a juice with no vegetables and used milk and nuts. The results went over great! The kids tried drinking as much as they could but I found myself guzzling my new Coco-Nutty Dreamcicle Juice! The flavor took me back to childhood when I last had a dreamcicle. I had to wonder, do they still make dreamcicles? Truthfully, it doesn't matter because I found a better dreamcicle to enjoy.
Thanks for the challenge kids!
Makes 3 cups
Coco-Nutty Dreamcicle Juice
1 large orange, peeled
10 dates, pitted
1 c coconut milk (or other milk alternative)
1/2 c cashews or almonds
1/2 c unsweetened shredded coconut
Put all ingredients into your blender and mix until the dates and almonds have broken down. If you don't have a strong blender, first soak the nuts in coconut milk for an hour and chop your dates before blending. This will help everything breakdown easier.
