Vegan Coco-Nutty Dreamcicle Juice

Green juices are the staple juice in the house. Recently, the kids haven't been drinking them as much. I think they are bored with the flavor ... frankly, I am too. We were in the habit of putting the same things in the juice: kale, carrots, apple, banana, hemp seeds and usually another fruit we had in the house. There is nothing wrong with this juice at all but I think we just need a little variety!


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!

Coco-Nutty Dreamcicle Juice

Makes 3 cups

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.
