Delightfully creamy with a pop of tangy citrus, these homemade sugar free orange creamsicles are made with natural ingredients and will satisfy your sweet tooth without giving you a sugar overload.

You know those hot, humid summer days on the homestead when the air just hangs? It sticks to you and lingers around like a pesky fly. There have been countless days after I have worked in the garden, planting and pulling weeds, and I come back into the house drenched in sweat, needing a refreshing drink.

Homesteading can be a lot of work!

And we homesteaders need a sweet treat once and awhile for all of the hard work we do, right? Something that satisfies the sweet tooth and doesn’t leave us feeling depleted after we have consumed it.

Transitioning to Healthy Eating

I believe many people are becoming more aware of the food they consume. No longer do they want processed foods containing unpronounceable additives and preservatives. Rather they want real food full of nutrition the way God created it. God designed us to like sweet things but somewhere along the way, our sweet tooth got sidetracked and sweet veggies, fruits and homemade desserts were just not enough. Thus began the epidemic of many health issues like sugar intolerance, allergies and mood swings.

The homestead movement in America is returning back to serving their families whole nutritious foods, including many naturally sweetened desserts ranging from pies and muffins to ice cream and summer drinks.

These homemade sugar free orange creamsicles are delightfully creamy with a pop of tangy citrus. And because they are sweetened with fruit juice concentrate only, there are no ugly after effects or a sugar overload.

I enjoy creating these homemade popsicles for my husband and father. My mother despises all these orange cream apparently due to a scaring incident of taking St. Josephs orange flavored chewable aspirin as a child. Maybe some of you can relate? Thankfully this recipe is very easy to tweak. We all have different tastes, so if you’re one that doesn’t enjoy anything orange flavored, don’t be afraid to experiment and turn these popsicles into raspberry creamsicles or berries and cream.

How to Make Sugar Free Popsicles

Makes: 10-12 popsicles depending on the size of your mold

Ingredients

2 1/2 cups whole milk
1/2 cup whipping cream
1 1/3 cups orange juice concentrate
2 tsp vanilla extract
Popsicle mold

In a blender, combine milk, cream, juice concentrate and vanilla. Mix until smooth and frothy.

Place the creamsicle mixture in the freezer and freeze for 45 minutes to 1 hour or until slushy and almost frozen. I often place the entire blender in the freezer to prevent me from having to use another dish.

Remove from freezer and blend again for a few seconds. Pour into popsicle molds or paper cups with a popsicle stick inserted.

Freeze until completely solid. Enjoy!

Tips for Making Popsicles

Don’t like orange flavored popsicles? This creamsicle recipe can easily be altered using other 100% juice concentrates such as raspberry (raspberry creamsicles – yum!), grape and berry.

If you prefer a creamier orange creamsicle, simply reduce the orange juice concentrate and replace it with more cream.

If you don’t have any popsicle molds, you can use a Dixie cup, paper coffee cup or I’ve even use a small Solo cup with a wooden popsicle stick. To keep the sticks upright while freezing, I like to cover the tops of the pops with aluminum foil with the stick poking out of the top of the foil.

My favorite popsicle mold to use is the Tovolo Groovy Ice Pop Molds. They stay upright, create a large pop and have a handle that prevents dripping – great for kids!
