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,
1-6 oz. can frozen orange juice concentrate, softened (or grape juice, cranberry juice)
1-6 oz. can water
1 pint vanilla ice cream, softened, or plain yogurt
Whir in a blender. Pour into molds, insert sticks, and freeze.
Makes seven, 2.5 oz. treats.
