With Summer right around the corner we’ll once again be adding smoothies to our daily menu. And what do you get when you freeze smoothies? Popsicles! When I got the kiddos the rocket pops for Easter, I remembered I wanted to try and find a creamsicle recipe. Most that I found called for sugar and orange juice concentrate, but I did find a bunch of Ice Pops recipes at Real Food Tastes Good.
Since I didn’t want to totally deplete Phil’s OJ for the week, I decided to combine the pineapple coconut pops recipe with the orange creamsicle. I mixed pineapple chunks, coconut milk, banana, orange juice, yogurt and honey to fill the popsicle molds. The verdict?
Really good! And cold! I usually puree the ingredients but I left the fruit in chunks and it was a nice contrast. I can’t wait to try some of the other recipes, as well as those from Pops! Icy Treats For Everyone that I got last year.
The popsicle molds pictured are actually Orka Ice Pop Molds; the set only comes with four, which is why I decided to get the Tovolo rocket pops. And as a side note: see Gwen’s pants? I sewed some of the leftover fabric from her crayon roll onto the bottom of her leggings to get some more life out of them. :)
