We’re having an unseasonably hot summer here in Portland. We’ve had multiple days over 90 degrees – that just doesn’t happen that often. I’m not complaining but as a result I’ve needed a lot of ice cream and frosty treats to keep cool.
We’ve even had a few days in triple digits! We had a couple of those days last week and wouldn’t you know it – my air conditioner wouldn’t work! I was glad I had a batch of these orange creamsicles in the freezer to help me keep my cool.
Orange creamsicles are one of my favorite childhood treat memories. Nothing would beat a creamy orange creamsicle on a hot and humid Wisconsin summer day when I was a kid. They are so easy to make at home you can always have them on hand!
They are a combination of vanilla ice cream, orange juice, vanilla.
I mixed it all together in my Kitchen Aid and then because I didn’t own any Popsicle molds at the time I used little paper cups and some popsicle sticks I had on hand. It worked great. I have since ordered some popsicle molds for myself!
Just tear off the paper when you are ready to cool off!
