What is a Creamsicle?
Creamsicles were always my summer treat of choice when the neighborhood Good Humor ice cream man came to visit when I was a kid. A creamy vanilla ice cream popsicle coated in a layer of orange sherbet. It just screams summer. Fudgesicles were another favorite treat.
You can find all the flavor and taste 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.
