Orange Creamsicle Popsicles

paleo orange creamsicle popsicles

We don’t do a lot of fruit in the Bejelly household due to watching our sugar intake.  My son tried his first orange a month ago – yes,  my 23-month-old son just ate an orange.   Anyhow, he went gaga over it.  I bought a bag of oranges for him thinking he would eat them in  a week but he ate one and then was done with it.  I’ve had 6 oranges sitting lonesome in my fridge and since I’m on a Popsicle kick, I figured I put a couple to go use.

This Orange Creamsicle Popsicle recipe is super simple and so crazy good.  You might notice that they’re not neon orange and more of a soft buttery yellow.  I didn’t want to mess with using turmeric to deepen the color because the flavor was spot on and I was afraid the turmeric would give it a hint of taste and mess everything up.

    Yay love that it doesn’t have dairy. Going to try this for baby once she passes all the other things that are questionable for her tummy.

    These (and your strawberry pops) look soooo good, Kelly. I haven’t used my molds yet this season and need to get to some ice-cream treats. like this!

    Orange cream is one of my husband’s favorites – he’d love this! Is tumeric typically what is used to naturally color ‘orange’ food?

    Thanks for posting this recipe. We have been on GAPS Diet (my 8 year old and myself for 19 months and trying to keep food new and interesting can be a challenge, and we also are limiting fruit and honey). Heading into spring/summer around here and I’ve been on a popsicle kick. A few weeks ago I made my own concoction of lemon/coconut popsicles a few weeks ago. The most recent batch was a mommypotamus recipe for a fudge pudding pop that had gelatin and avocado. Last night I was trying to decide what would be our next popsicle flavor, and I came up with “orange creamsicle”. Can’t wait to give these a try in the next day or two. Thanks for also posting approximately many oranges to use.
