Anyway, I used to loooove the orange dreamsicle, creamsicle, whatever they are called, Popsicles when I was little. Then Jamba Juice came out with the smoothie and I loved it. In fact, last year when I got out of the hospital I was feeling a little hungry (that happens sometimes when you haven’t done anything other than throw up for months!)and the dr really wanted me to try and eat anything I could. So, off we went to Jamba. BEST. SMOOTHIE. EVER. I’m sure it was because I hadn’t eaten real food in forever but ohhhh it tasted good. I threw it up the second we got home, but worrrrtttthhhhhhh itttttttt!!! (Little one, you were worth it too.)

Ok, I’m off track, point is I think it’s delicious and these cookies do taste similar. I used white chocolate chips for the cream part of the recipe and they were pretty darn tasty.
