Growing up, I LOVED orange creamsicles so much. The combination of the sweet cream on the inside and the orange on the outside was so refreshing and delicious.
Plus: popsicles. Am I right?
Are Popsicles Good for You? Unfortunately, the popsicles we had as kids were full of refined sugar, artificial flavors, and colors and – all in all (sniff) – not that great for us.
But, what if I told you I reinvented the orange creamsicles you dream of in a healthier and more nutritious way?
That’s one of the most enjoyable things about following clean lifestyle — you can still enjoy all the flavors, textures, and experiences you’ve always loved…just in a new and unrefined way (more on that here).
How COOL is that?
So, each time, it’s like a little win.
Okay…it’s a BIG win.
How Do You Make an Orange Creamiscle? In this updated orange creamsicle recipe, I want to show you how to make a healthy orange creamsicle, while replicating the simple joy everyone is reminded of when they think about orange creamsicles. To do that, I chose to use just a few simple ingredients – just 3, in fact: orange (duh!), honey, and full fat coconut milk.
Shockingly these three simple and clean ingredients are all you need to do the trick.
If you haven’t tried using full fat coconut milk before, it’s basically magic. For more on this, check out these mini cheesecakes and this strawberries and cream steel cut oats recipe.
I’ve been really excited to make healthy ice creams, sorbets, and popsicles this summer since (1) duh, again! (2) the kids LOVE them, too, and (3) popsicles for the win!
