Nothing beats a childhood classic like orange creamsicle popsicles. Even as an adult, it is hard to say no to this delicious summer treat, especially knowing these sweet cool-down treats are lightened up!
Growing up, I had the same insatiable love for super sweet things that many other kids have. I was obsessed with cream sodas (thankfully a stage that didn’t last too long) and would give my left arm to anything strawberries and cream or orange creamsicle flavored.
Before I discovered the choco taco, I would always get the orange creamsicles from the ice cream truck.
Even now as an adult, I always reach for the orange vanilla Polar. Seriously, that drink ice cold on a hot day is my total jam. Add a splash of vodka for nice low calorie, post-dinner beverage is the best.
So, I guess you could say that I am a bit biased toward all things orange creamsicle. When I received the cook, For the Love of Popsicles by Sarah Bond of Live Eat Learn, the first thing I made were the orange creamsicle popsicles.
And I ate them. On my own.
Then I made some for the kids too, cause I guess it’s a good thing to share the orange creamsicle goodness.
I will definitely be making a lot more from this popsicle cookbook though because there are so many delicious recipes in there and I am kind of, sort of in love with about 15 of these popsicle flavors just from the ingredients and photos alone.
I love that Sarah makes these recipes better for you with good ingredients blended just so. It’s no surprise though when you look at all her recipes on her blog. (Side note, my fellow kombucha brewers, we need to start trying her kombucha recipes ASAP).
If you love orange creamsicle popsicles as much as I do, then you will definitely love these. Pro tip: It makes a good smoothie if you add a bit of ice when you just can’t wait for the popsicles to freeze!
