Orange Creamsicles

Orange CreamsiclesThis little beauty is the reason I’ve been staying stocked up on orange juice and heavy cream this summer. For me, the blended flavor of orange and cream is not only delicious, it brings back such good memories of eating them on hot summer days when I was growing up.  These past couple of months we’ve really been enjoying these cold, refreshing orange creamsicles while sitting outside after the sun goes down.  Aah.  Warm summer nights and frozen treats.

They’re so easy so whip up and have no added refined sugar, which I love.

There’s still plenty of summer left so give them a try!

Popsicle MoldRemember these tupperware popsicle sets?  By the looks of mine you can probably tell that I’ve had it for about forever.  I use it all the time and love it for three main reasons: 1) they’re completely reusable, 2) plastic sticks ~ I don’t like the feel of wooden sticks in my mouth when I’m eating a frozen popsicle or ice cream bar, 3) I like handing them out to other people this way better than pulling the popsicle out of the mold and not having it covered.

Orange Creamsicles

Ingredients

  • 1 cup orange juice, fresh or frozen {You could use orange juice concentrate for a stronger flavor ~ I made them this way the first time because I thought a strong orange flavor sounded yummy but it was too strong and a bit bitter for us, almost orange-medicine tasting.}
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 3 tablespoons raw honey or agave nectar {I've tried it both ways with delicious results}
  • 1/4 teaspoon orange extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions

  1. In a medium bowl, whisk all of the ingredients together.
  2. Pour the mixture into popsicle molds. {If you're using popsicle sticks that are free standing let the mixture set for 30-60 minutes before adding them.}
  3. Freeze for 4-6 hours or until frozen.

    I just bought myself a new set of frozen treat moulds. Can’t wait to try this.

      What kind of a set did you purchase?

    My mom had the same set of Tupperware Popsicle molds. How precious that you still have a set in good condition. Takes me back. 🙂

      I know. These molds have been used A LOT ~ from Kool-Aid popsicles for my kiddos when they were little to these tasty creamsicles so I’m surprised they are still in great usable condition.

    Love these from when I was a kid. I like how you used honey!

    • Lori August 2, 2013 at 11:03 am #

      I like it with honey, too. Any time I can cut out the refined sugar and have a tasty treat is a huge bonus for my family and me. 🙂

      • Michelle August 2, 2013 at 7:07 pm #

        Me, too! I always try to recreate my sweet faves with honey!

      Popping on over… thanks for the invite.

    Ooh- these look seriously yummo! I was given one of these tupperware sets and have never used it. I might just have to dust it off. I wonder if you could substitute the cream for soy yoghurt. Do you think it may work? We are, unfortunately, a dairy-free household.
    Good to be reading your blog again!

      Hi Hannah. It’s nice to hear from you. I would say, “give it a try”. You might need to sweeten it differently but I’m sure it would work ~ you’d have orange yogurt bars. That sounds yummy, too. I think I might try it myself. Not with soy but regular yogurt. Thanks for sending that idea my way.

    What a perfect summer treat! I can’t wait to make them for the kids; thanks for sharing at Mix it up Monday 🙂

    These sound delicious, I LOVE creamsicles!!! I’m not allergic to milk but I’m not a big fan of it…wonder if almond milk would work instead of yogurt.??

    • Lori August 7, 2013 at 10:05 am #

      I’m not sure… give it a try. I really like it with the heavy whipping cream because it binds well with the orange juice for a creamy refreshing treat.

    • Hannah August 15, 2013 at 9:12 pm #

      Hi Kara, I just made them with coconut milk and they were delicious.

      • Lori August 23, 2013 at 2:41 am #

        Thanks, Hannah. I’ll pass that along to her.

    Hi Lori, I tried to get hold of you via your contact form, not sure it’s working properly as two forms popped up. Anyway, I did end up making your orange creamsicles. I ended up using coconut milk and they turned out a treat. I posted them on my blog today. Cheers, Hannah.

    • Lori August 23, 2013 at 2:43 am #

      Thanks for letting me know about my contact page. I’ll check into that. And thanks for the great idea of using coconut milk. That sounds really delilcious. I’m glad you turned out a yummy treat.
