Orange Creamsicles

The other day I was craving a Flintstone push-up pop something fierce.  Remember those guys?  Mmmm yummy and creamy orange sherbet.  So I scoured the interwebs for some info on where I could get my hands on some or for a similar recipe I could make.  Unfortunately, they no longer exist, except for a few people that have kept them since the 90s and sell them for a lot of money on ebay.  Gross, am I right?!  

Then, I stumbled upon THIS beautiful orange creamsicle recipe from Oven Love blog and made it.  And YUM!  It totally satisfied my craving.

She lists a couple of variations.  I tried half with heavy cream and half with coconut milk.  I much prefer the cream--the coconut milk batch tasted way too sunscreeny to me.   I also  squeezed my own fresh oranges for juice, and included a little orange pulp to the  mixture.  I liked it but some people didn't like the texture, so I probably won't do that next time.  

They were so simple to make.  The hardest part was waiting for them to freeze!

Thanks Oven Love!
