Orange Creamsicles: No Sugar Added

When I was a kid, we would have ice cream parties at school. The choices were always a fudgesicle or an orange creamsicle. Strange as it seems, I often chose orange over chocolate. I have never forgotten that creamy vanilla ice cream covered in orange bliss. Here is a version that takes me back...although it is sugar free and ice cream free, so not exactly the same.


 4 cups freshly Squeezed orange juice
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
2 T Collagen Hydrolysate gelatin (optional)
4 drops Orange Essential oil.
Mix all ingredients together, pour into mold of choice and freeze into pops.


The result is a sweet treat filled with immune boosting vitamin C and protein filled gelatin! Adding cream (fat) and protein (gelatin) to your fresh juice will keep your blood sugar from shooting through the roof. Yea! Another plug for cream.

    1. We try to find healthy "treats" so my kids do not feel so deprived. They understand that sugar is so bad for us, but it tastes so good, it is hard to convince them not to eat it!

  4. Great treat for the kids! I'm just like you Janine. I like to give the kids treats, but I don't like them full of lots of junk if I can help it. I can feel good about giving this treat to them.

  6. Yum! Sounds good! I need to message you sometime about your oils - I really want something to cover my vinegar-smelling cleaner if possible, and citrus would be my first choice! :)

Last summer I made orange popsickles to have on hand for the grandkids - this year I am going to try these - they are defintiely healthier!!
