V is for: Vegan Valencia Orange Sherbet

As a kid, trips to the Great Falls, Montana mall were synonymous with the Orange Julius stand. If you've never had one (and unless you grew up in the Midwest), the best way I can explain it is like a creamsicle blended up into a shake.

It was orangey, it was creamy, it was delicious.

That's what this orange sherbet reminds me of.

I decided to make it vegan to go along with the alphabet theme, so I subbed coconut milk for the dairy here. I actually LOVED this substitution, as it gave it a bit of a tropical feel.

You'll need about 2 cups of freshly squeezed orange juice, which will take about 8 oranges. To speed up the process, store the oranges and the coconut milk in the fridge until you're ready to make your sherbet. (And yes, it's sherbet, not "sherbert.")

U is for: USA USA Boozy Popsicles

Never before has a post been more appropriate than it is this weekend.

Not only will we be celebrating our nation's independence with BBQ's and fireworks on Saturday... but Sunday we will be cheering on the U.S. women as they try to capture their first World Cup title since 1999.

In other words, a lot of red, white and blue.

Enter these slightly boozy, super fun and extra delicious popsicles. Perfect for cooling down on a warm summer day and celebrating good ol' 'Merica.

Also... special shout out to my friend Jeremy. I was feeling a little un-inspired and tempted to skip over the letter "U" all together this time. But he insisted I stay the course and came up with a few ideas to help get me going.
