Make homemade orange creamsicles with freshly squeezed orange juice!
Homemade Orange Creamsicles with freshly squeezed orange juice
My parents gave us a big box of oranges, and for a few weeks we were in orange heaven. There’s so many things to make with fresh oranges, but there’s nothing better than just freshly squeezed orange juice. I ended up juicing a bunch all at once, and we made orange creamsicles by adding store bought vanilla bean ice cream and lots of fresh orange juice. They were delicious!
We juiced them with this simple glass juicer…the old fashioned way. I did strain out all the pulp, for a smooth juice. Don’t you think oranges are so beautiful?
These oranges made the best juice.
Oranges are pretty much good year round, maybe just not as inexpensive as they are when they’re in season.
We are headed into popsicle season, and if you can avoid a bunch of the artificial colors and flavors and make your own, these are a great way to do it…and get the kids involved while you’re at it!
Here’s a little video to show you just how easy it is to make freshly squeezed orange juice creamsicles.
Homemade popsicles are the best, especially when they are made with fresh real fruit juice.
- 3 cups orange juice freshly squeezed
- 1 container vanilla ice cream softened
Spoon small spoonfuls of the vanilla ice cream into the popsicle molds.
Pour the fresh orange juice into each mold filling it up, almost to the top.
Cover and insert the wooden popsicle sticks.
Freeze for 4 hours or best over night.
To remove the popsicles from the molds, insert the plastic molds into warm water, and gently squeeze the popsicles out of the molds.
