Orange Creamsicle

Posted on

This spring weather has me craving a cold treat. This is a healthy, vegan version that we are really enjoying. Warning! It’s a bit tart and sour so adjust sugar accordingly. I added protein powder (Amazing Grass/Amazing Meal Vanilla Chai) and I thoroughly enjoyed it s a mid day pick me up. Obviously, you could add your favorite protein powders and spices. Also, Lemon creamsicles sound pretty good too and lemon juice loves that liver!

NOTE- I tried to get a good photo but they all look so phallic :( It looks like a popsicle k!

Orange Creamsicles:

12 oz frozen orange juice concentrate. Make sure it’s just orange juice. Thawed.

1/4 c coconut sugar  (This made is a little tart, maple sugar would be good and sweeter.)

1/8 tsp salt

3 Tbl honey (or maple syrup)

2 tsp vanilla extract (sub out 1/2 of this with almond extract if you would like)

4 1/4 c Amande  yogurt, plain

 

Directions:

1) Mix first 5 ingredients in a saucepan. Simmer on low-medium for 3-5 minutes until combined. Cool.

2) Whisk the orange mixture and yogurt together. Fill your popsicle forms and freeze for at least 5 hours to set.

3) They come out perfectly if you run the frozen pop under hot after for 5 seconds.
