Orange Creamsicle Pops

Written by chanie on August 4th, 2013

Some of the favorite memories of my youth involve the summers spent in Himmel’s bungalow colony in upstate New York. The caretakers lived directly across the road, in what I remember to be a shack equally as dilapidated as our bungalow. Not that I cared much. When I happened upon their space, I was there for only one thing – the small ice cream freezer in the corner. I had my eye on a particular prize – the orange creamsicles. The creamy ice pops were a summer treat, fresh with the taste of orange and sweet with milky goodness.

I have wanted to replicate those pops in forever, and with my new-found obsession with creamy coconut milk, I was pretty sure I could make a decent nondairy version. Considering how my daughter devoured them, I think I did a good job. They’re a bit icier than the original, but the taste brings back such great memories!

    Did you use sweetened or unsweetened original coconut dream?

  6. chani says:

    Thanks. I doubled it. Put in a container instead of individual molds. Hasn’t frozen yet.. did yours take a long time?

      I froze my popsicles overnight. If you’re doing a whole container at a time, it will probably need to freeze overnight too. Just beware that making an entire container at once is going to result in an icier product.

  7. Would you believe me if I told you I heard the word “creamsicle” for the first time just this week?

  8. I will be making these this week!!

  9. These look awesome. I am sure the kids loved them.

    Do you use the coconut milk from the can? I’ve not been getting a very good texture…
