Orange Creamsicle Ice Cream is a smooth and creamy orange and vanilla ice cream that tastes like that favorite childhood treat.
What is a Creamsicle?
Creamsicles were always my summer treat of choice when the neighborhood ice cream man came to visit. A creamy vanilla ice cream bar coated in a layer of orange sherbet. It just screams summer.
You can find all the flavor of that favorite treat in this Orange Creamsicle Ice Cream. It’s like you took that creamsicle, put it in a bowl and mixed it all together.

How to Make Creamsicle Ice Cream
- Add sugar to a bowl and add in milk, half and half and cream.
- Stir until sugar dissolves.
- Add in orange juice, extracts and a pinch of salt.
- Pour mixture into ice cream maker and process according to manufacturer’s directions.
After ice cream has churned and set up, transfer into a freezer container and freeze to allow ice cream to harden. If you prefer a soft serve consistency you can enjoy it right after churning.
How Long Will Ice Cream Keep in the Freezer?
Storing ice cream in a container with a tight fitting lid, where air can not get to it is important. It will prevent ice crystals from forming on the ice cream. Ice cream is best eaten within 1-2 weeks.
