Nostalgic Dessert: Homemade Creamsicles


When I was little and heard the familiar jingle of the approaching ice cream truck, I could not contain my excitement for the orange and vanilla creamsicle popsicles. These were my mother's favorite and so were naturally mine as well. I recently remembered summer afternoons spent enjoying creamsicles, and a desire to recreate the sweet treat has been growing inside me ever since. So I did some research, and I'm going to give this recipe a whirl tonight. Orange juice concentrate is combined with vanilla ice cream and the mixture is frozen in popsicle molds. So easy, it's crazy! To join me in giving this recipe a try,

I am definitely going to try this one! I'm thinking of making up the orange, and a separate batch of cranberry and then swirling them together. Might be pretty, and orange and cranberry go nicely together flavor-wise.
