Dreamsicle Smoothie

Remember these little summertime goodies? Creamsicle, Dreamsicle, whatever you called them… YUM! I started imagining this as a healthy morning smoothie, and came up with a pretty impressive taste doppelganger!

Blend:
2-3 C frozen Bananas
4 Dates, pitted
6 tablespoons of Coconut Milk, chilled overnight
Cold Water, to cover
3 t Vanilla Extract
10 drops Orange Extract (adjust to taste)
Optional:
1 heaping tablespoon of Cocoa Nibs
1 tablespoon of Hemp Powder
1 teaspoon of Maca Powder
serves 2

I’m not a huge fan of citrus so I left out an actual orange, but I’m curious to try adding one as well. I added a touch of turmeric to this smoothie as well, for color, but I think it’s too easy to add too much, so I’d advise against it.
