When I was a child, I spent many summer days at Moriello's, our town's public swimming pool. After a few hours of splishing and splashing, I would run barefoot over to the ice cream stand, where for pocket change you could buy Good Humor ice cream in deliciously soggy frozen cones; Mickey Mouse popsicles with a gumball for a nose; or red, white and blue rocket popsicles. My hands-down favorite was the Creamsicle (orange flavor only, of course)... Vanilla ice cream encased in a thick layer of icey orange sorbet. This creamy drink is inspired by Creamsicles and memories of hot summer days. No dairy, vegan, no added sugar.
THE ORANGE CREAMSICLE
1 cup orange juice, not from concentrate
1 cup rice milk, fortified (plain or vanilla)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Combine ingredients in blender. Blend until smooth and frothy. Serve immediately.
