Do you remember Dreamsicles? You know, the orange and vanilla popsicle thingys? I loved those! I don't think I've had one since I was small but I still remember how awesome they were. Closest thing I've had to a Dreamsicle since is a orange and vanilla cream frozen drink with Triple Sec. That brings back some memories too! Ah, but I digress.
This is a fun and tasty summer dessert. Get the kids to help make it. They'll have a blast.
We may not have cut the prettiest of slices but it sure was tasty. Totally reminded me of a Dreamsicle. Just not on a stick. And without the triple sec.
