2-Ingredient Vegan Orange Creamsicles made dairy-free and naturally sweetened! These amazingly orange-blasted creamy popsicles are absolutely delicious and so easy to make! Enjoy them as a healthy treat during the hot summer months!
Here it is! The easy healthy frozen dessert recipe you’ve been waiting for all summer that requires ZERO effort, no baking, and ALL THE FUN!!
Long story short, these orange creamsicles require a whopping two ingredients…are you ready for it, are you ready for it??
Ingredients for Orange Creamsicles:
Full-Fat Canned Coconut Milk: Keeps the creamsicle ultra creamy without the use of dairy! You can replace the full-fat canned coconut milk with coconut cream. You can get away with using light canned coconut milk for a version that’s lower in fat, but note that the creamsicles will be slightly icy.
Orange Juice Concentrate: Gives the tangy, sweet orange flavor without adding icy texture to the creamsicle. If you aren’t familiar with orange juice concentrate, you can find it in the freezer section of your grocery store next to all the other concentrate frozen juices.
Can you even believe it?
If you’re familiar with classic orange creamsicles, you know that there is the orange exterior layer and the creamy interior layer. These do not have that – they are a monolayer approach. However, the good news is the net effect is the same – mega creaminess and zesty orange flavor.
So at the expense of having a cream-filled inside, the trade-off is we only need 2 ingredients, 5 minutes of time, and the focus of a 4 year old.
My nieces and nephews gave these their enthusiastic approval, so rest assured, these are kid tested and kid loved.
Speaking of children, these orange creamsicles are a fabulous project for kids during the hot summer months! They’re incredibly easy to make, so they are a fabulous project for little ones. Or tweens. Or adults. Appropriate for all ages 😉
Let’s make them!
How to Make Orange Creamsicles:
Simply add the full-fat canned coconut milk and orange juice concentrate to a blender and blend until smooth.
Pour the creamsicle base into a popsicle mold, place the top on and insert the popsicle sticks.
Freeze for 4 hours, or until creamsicles are completely frozen and set up.
When you’re ready to eat the creamsicles, allow them to thaw at room temperature for a few minutes before tugging on one of the popsicle sticks. If it doesn’t release somewhat easily, simply wait longer or run the outside of the popsicle mold under hot water to help along the process.
What Type of Popsicle Mold to Use:
I get asked a lot about my popsicle mold. I bought this Norpro Frozen Ice Pop Maker on Amazon many moons ago and absolutely love it. AND it’s currently on sale for $9.99 😉
- For a lower fat version, use light canned coconut milk, but don’t use coconut milk from a carton.
- You can use coconut cream for an even creamier creamsicle!
- If you do dairy, feel free to use half & half or heavy cream.
- Replace the orange juice concentrate with any other frozen juice to change up the flavor.
