Orange Creamsicles {using coconut milk}

Orange Creamsicle - Comfy Belly

My kick this week has been creamy orange ice pops using coconut milk. With all the turmeric in my life these days I find my eye drawn to all things yellow and orange.

These are not the orange ice-coated creamsicles that as a kid I rarely chose from the ice cream truck (I hear the tune in my head as I write this). I always went for chocolate or strawberry shortcake. But when other faves were sold out, I settled for an orange creamsicle.

What I like about this recipe is it’s simplicity, although you could make it more complicated by making your own orange juice concentrate (recipe follows). I do have an old post for orange creamsicles using cultured cream but I haven’t used this recipe in quite a while and it uses dairy and eggs. Don’t let me stop you though—adding an egg or two is a great way to get some protein in your life (if you’re ok with raw eggs).

I’ve made these several ways: orange juice concentrate from a can (no additives, pulp-free, 100% juice), homemade orange juice concentrate (my fave) and fresh-squeezed orange juice. They all work. The flavor is the strongest using the concentrate from a can (no surprise), but the homemade concentrate—to me—delivers the best flavor with a bit less zing. Up to you. Try them all!

Oh, and this is my latest favorite pop maker, mostly because I can use wood sticks and remove the pops easily by either running under hot water for a few seconds or letting the pops sit at room temperature for a few minutes.

    Is the coconut milk the can or the carton? The can is thicker. Thanks! I’m excited to try these.

      Yes, in general, the can is thicker. I use a brand in a carton that is usually pretty thick, but lately not as much. Another trick is to put the carton or can in the refrigerator overnight and then the fat and liquid separate. You can then remove some of the liquid and you’re left with a thicker milk.
