Orange Creamsicle Sip

First off, I’m going to apologize for the long silence. Now I’m going to tell you why it’s been so long since I’ve posted. 🙂 I have started a new adventure working for a food truck called Chelsea’s Real Food. It’s been a very fun experience getting to know the business side of food a bit more, and hanging out with other people in the kitchen. I love getting to work with food all day long. Although that has made me busier I found the time to perfect this amazing drink that I had tried creating a while back.

It tastes like summer, which is a very good thing since we still have snow…and it’s April.

This Orange Creamsicle Sip is basically a flavor twist on the Winter Wonderland Sip (page 405 of the Trim Healthy Mama Cookbook) that Serene created. It tastes just like orange creamsicles. Who wouldn’t want to drink ice cream all day long?

  1. Looks delicious. Could you sub out another tea for the Rooibos Red Tea, like black or oolong or maybe even a zinger tea? Thanks.

    1. Hi Kay!
      I haven’t really experimented with that. The Rooibos Red Tea gives it the orange color, so if you use another tea you’ll be missing out on the color which is a big factor for me. I’m guessing it wouldn’t taste quite as pure orange, maybe more like an orange flavored tea. If you try it and like it let me know! 🙂

  2. I tried it with the zinger….but it did have a hint of orange instead of being mainly orange. I then added lemon juice and seltzer water to my cup. I will have to buy the roobios
