Fresh Fruit Creamsicle Cups

When I was growing up, I loved Orange Julius. I would usually only get it once a year, while school-clothes shopping in Sacramento (we lived in a small town about an hour away). I haven’t recreated that taste since “going Paleo.” I wanted a cross between that and an orange creamsicle, with a twist of banana. After my successful Homemade Citrus Cleaner, I was inspired to use some more mandarins. This is what I came up with:

Recipe: Fresh Fruit Creamsicle Cups

3 ripe bananas

3 mandarins (or 1 large orange)

1 TBSP vanilla

1/2 cup unsweetened, full-fat coconut milk

8-9 ice cubes

Peel bananas and break in  half. Place on a large plate in a single layer. Peel mandarins, break into segments and place onto plate with bananas:

Place in freezer and freeze for 1 hour.

Remove from freezer and place fruit, vanilla, and coconut milk into a blender or food processor. Blend just until combined. Add ice and blend. Pour into serving dish, garnish with a bit of orange zest, and serve promptly. Or, if you have extra time, place in freezer for 30 minutes to an hour and let harden for an even cooler treat!
