Homemade Creamsicles

Is it summer time yet? It must be around the corner, because lately I have been in the mood for icy cold sweet treats (like popsicles).

Well, not just popsicles… these are creamsicles. Orange creamsicles are the BEST and conjure up childhood food memories.

Orange Creamsicles, make 8 standard size popsicles (may vary based on your mold size).

4-5 oranges (8 oz. orange juice)
2 1/2 cups vanilla ice cream
1 tablespoon orange zest
1 cup heavy whipping cream

First, extract the juice from the oranges.

Blend together the orange juice, ice cream and zest until smooth. Pour into popsicle molds, but leave the top 1/4 empty.

Using a whisk or a stand mixer with a whisk attachment, whip the heavy whipping cream until soft peaks form. You don’t want firm whipped cream—just firm enough that it won’t too quickly seep into another liquid.

Spoon the whipped cream on top of the creamsicles, add popsicle sticks, and freeze overnight.

You can use any kind of fruit juice you prefer. I think next time I might try grapefruit!

These are a fun snack to serve at a backyard picnic party or by yourself in front of the TV watching Game of Thrones. Either way. I think both options sound just perfect. xo. Emma
