Did you like the Strawberry Creamsicle recipe I shared? How about an Orange Creamsicle recipe to add some variety? For that matter, you can sub just about any fruit you like to make creamsicles. Such a refreshing treat!
It’s worth your small investment to get a box of small 3-ounce cups and a package of popsicle sticks. These truly are so easy to make and everyone at my house loves them!
Make them with a little maple syrup, or with stevia if your family likes it. (Stevia is an herb that is naturally sweet – not artificial, not a sugar – perfect! However, if you use too much, it can have a bitter aftertaste. You have to get used to how much to use to make it sweet enough without overusing it!)
Orange Creamsicle Recipe
- 2 cups whole milk
- ½ cup orange juice concentrate
- 1 Tablespoon real maple syrup (or about 10 drops liquid stevia)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Blend all ingredients in a food processor or blender until smooth and creamy.
- Pour mixture into popsicle molds or 3-ounce cups.
- If using 3-ounce cups, place a popsicle stick into the middle of each after these have been in the freezer for about 30 minutes.
- Freeze for about 2 hours before serving. Makes about 12 small creamsicles.
Use a mixture of berries (like raspberries, blueberries, and strawberries) for these. Use different varieties of 100% juice – any of your favorites. Use whipping cream instead of milk to make them even more rich and creamy. Make them in popsicle molds instead of with cups and popsicle sticks.
What else can you think of to make these delicious?

These look good… this is my go to Orange Creamsicle Recipe… pretty similar, I need to try your variety next :)
1 cup orange juice
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1 tsp vanilla
3 T. honey
Could I just use regular orange juice and adjust the quantity somehow?

It would be worth a shot, but you may not end up with the same bold flavor. Concentrate isn’t watered down so that flavor is very strong. You would need to use much less orange juice to keep the consistency the same and it would likely result in a less flavorful creamsicle. Hope it turns out well for you either way!
Yes! I make these and the strawberry creamsicles, too, with milk kefir or homemade yogurt. Gives them a nice tartness. One can never go wrong with vanilla, either. :)
