This yummy smoothie brings me back to the summer days of my childhood, eating creamsicle pops by the side of the local swimming pool. Add ice if you want to make it a thicker, icier drink - Otherwise it is a thinner, more juice-like beverage. This is such a tasty treat. Gluten-free, pareve, vegan, dairy-free.
- 1 cup orange juice, not from concentrate
- 1 cup rice milk, fortified (plain or vanilla)
- 1 banana
- 1⁄2 teaspoon vanilla
- Combine ingredients in blender.
- Blend until smooth and frothy.
- Serve immediately.
Very Yummy! I just recently went vegan so I am trying to find yummy things to eat to not feel deprived, this fit the bill. My husband liked it too. Next I'm trying it on the kids!
OK well it doesn't taste like an orange creamsicle to me - not quite - but it's REALLY yummy. :) I used vanilla rice milk and a frozen banana and I made up some OJ from a frozen can just to make this. My 3 1/2 year old is sneaking sips of it while I'm typing this up. I'll definitely be making this again - I have a whole freezer full of bananas that have just been repurposed!
I made this with homemade cashew milk (2 c water, 3/4 c cashews, 2 dates whirled in the blender) and otherwise followed directions. It was really good and if I wasn't too lazy to juice oranges, I'd probably have it every day! (Maybe I need an electric juicer?...) I think it would be really good with a frozen banana. May have to try that one of these days. Thank you! Reviewed for Healthy Choices ABC tag.
