Orange Creamsicle Mocktail Drink with Herbal Support

Skip to Recipe

In the late afternoon into dinnertime, I always look for an uplighting sparkling mocktail to hydrate & nourish. Usually, it’s a tea or a moon milk. However, as we are in peak spring, I wanted a chilled, bright delicious mocktail—something I can enjoy from springtime into those starry night summer gatherings. In Southern California, the farmer’s markets are dripping with fresh citrus in the spring through summertime. Perfect for crafting together an orange creamsicle mocktail.

Crafting An Orange Creamsicle Mocktail

Crafting this mocktail, I wanted something that was accessible, and easy to make, while also being incredibly refreshing and delicious. I also wanted to keep in mind a well-nourished eco-system. Unlike a drink that contains alcohol, I wanted something to refresh and nourish to add to rather than take away from.

Overview of the Ingredients

At the base of this mocktail, we have organic orange juice and sparkling water. Which, by itself is delicious, yet it can only get better. Next, we mix in a little coconut milk, adding the nostalgic cream from the creamsicle we will know and love texture to the drink. Now, we get to the creative part, of what makes this mocktail shine!

That’s where the coconut water kefir comes in. For that extra coconut kick, I added some homemade coconut water kefir. I drink homemade coconut water kefir regularly since it helps to support a well-balanced digestive ecosystem (hello pre + probiotics). If you don’t have the coconut kefir on hand feel free to add in unflavored kombucha or more sparkling water.

Last, I top the mocktail off with a little bit of Mountain Rose Herbs ginger syrup (hello warming & a dash of spice + sweet), and a pinch of Mountain Rose Herbs vanilla bean powder. Optional: You can also add a few drops of Mountain Rose Herbs Spring Care Extract or Calendula Extract to add a dash of herbal support. If you like your mocktail sweet, add a little bit of honey. Honestly, I don’t think it needs it. Between the orange juice, coconut water kefir, and coconut cream with a dash of vanilla, the drink was sweet enough for my palette.

Mixing the Orange Creamsicle Mocktail

One of the perks of this orange creamsicle mocktail recipe was to make it easy and accessible. The ingredients I chose are easy to acquire and guess what, it’s easy to make! No specialty equipment is required! Once you have the ingredients (besides the sparkling water), all you need to do is put them in a shaker (or whisk with a fork). Once thoroughly mixed, add the sparkling water and you are ready to enjoy!

If you are aiming for a fancy mocktail, you could garnish the rim of the glass with salt or top with a mint leaf. It just adds another special touch to the mix. πŸ˜‰

Gratitude to Mountain Rose Herbs

I want to give thanks and gratitude to Mountain Rose Herbs for sponsoring this post. When sourcing ingredients I turn to them first. They have a large variety of organic herbs and spices. For this post, I used ginger syrup, vanilla bean powder, spring care extract, and calendula extract.
