Orange Creamsicle Jello Shots

Yum! Orange Creamsicle Jello Shots (click through for recipe) Of all the “summer” flavors out there, one of my favorites is the orange and cream combination. It can be a popsicle, a soda, a dessert—it doesn’t really matter, I’ll probably love it. We stopped by The Pharmacy last time we were in Nashville, and I got the most delicious homemade orange creamsicle soda that you could ever imagine. Now what’s one of our favorite things to do here at the blog? That’s right, make flavors we love as jello shots!

Yum! Orange Creamsicle Jello Shots (click through for recipe) Orange Creamsicle Jello Shots, makes 24 slices.

3 large oranges
1 cup water
3/4 cup whipped cream or vanilla vodka
1/4 cup triple sec
1/4 cup vanilla ice cream (melted)
1 small box orange Jell-O

Yum! Orange Creamsicle Jello Shots (click through for recipe) First you’ll want to cut the oranges in half and remove the orange sections from the orange peel. You can do this either by scooping them out with a spoon or using a handheld juicer to first juice the orange as much as possible and then scoop out any remaining orange. Just be careful not to dig down too deep and make a hole in your peel—all your jello will leak out the bottom if you do!

Add in your vodka, triple sec, ice cream and stir to combine. Pour into a measuring cup or some other container with a spout. Place your hollowed out orange halves in a muffin tin to keep them stable, and pour in your jello mixture to the top of each orange half.

Orange Creamsicle Jello Shots (click through for recipe) You can either serve these all on a plate together or in individual shot glasses with a rim of sugar around the top. These are probably some of my favorite jello shots as far as taste goes, and I think it’s because of the ice cream. It really adds that creamy taste that you would expect from a creamsicle. I love that with the exception of scooping out the orange middles (that part’s a bit messy), this is actually a really easy process with an extra cute payoff at the end—and they are really fun to eat! A total mind trick for sure, but one that I highly recommend! xo. Laura

  • This is literally the best idea. I love anything orange-y so these look right up my street, and you know, it’s my birthday next week so maybe it’s the perfect time to give it a go!

  • These are the cutest looking shots I’ve ever seen! The flavour sounds so good too – I’d never even heard of whipped cream vodka before but I’m a big fan of vanilla 🙂

  • This is such a brilliant idea, I’ll definitely be trying these out in summer.

  • We make these in New Zealand without the alcohol and call them Jelly Boats. Put sails made out of toothpicks in a quarter and serve on blue jelly (sea) at kids birthday parties. I would love to try this version. Yum

  • Good idea! I’l change it a bit and will use the orange I take out of the rind too in the mixture

  • The jellos inside the oranges are SO innovative! Haha love it!

  • Ahh! What an adorable jello shot. I find the ones that are actually full shotglasses are too big, but this looks like it might be better? 🙂

  • This is so clever! I actually thought they were real oranges. Can’t wait to try this recipe out!

  • I made blood orange jello shots once and had a hard time getting them to stay put on the plate without spilling. Thank goodness you took the photo showing them in the cupcake tins. Such a smart idea. A friend of mine asked to have these at her dirty 30 party this summer and I was a bit nervous thinking about how many I would have to balance/make, but this will make my life much easier! And thanks for the new flavor idea too 😉

  • My, oh my, these look phenomenal! I’ve always wondered how people made jello wedges and now I finally understand! The orange creamsicle flavour combination sounds really nice.
