Growing up, I LOVED orange creamsicles so much.  The combination of the sweet cream on the inside and the orange on the outside was so refreshing and delicious.

Plus: popsicles.  Am I right?

Right.

Fresh naval oranges, a bowl of raw honey, and a can of coconut milk – the three ingredients needed to make refreshing orange creamsicles Slices of naval oranges placed on a chopping board, ready to be used to make orange creamsicles

Are Popsicles Good for You?

Unfortunately, the popsicles we had as kids were full of refined sugarOpens in a new tab., artificial flavors, and colors and – all in all (sniff) – not that great for us.

But, what if I told you I reinvented the orange creamsicles you dream of in a healthier and more nutritious way?

That’s one of the most enjoyable things about following clean lifestyleOpens in a new tab. — you can still enjoy all the flavors, textures, and experiences you’ve always loved…just in a new and unrefined way (more on that hereOpens in a new tab.).

How COOL is that?

So, each time, it’s like a little win.

Okay…it’s a BIG win.

How Do You Make an Orange Creamiscle?

In this updated orange creamsicle recipe, I want to show you how to make a healthy orange creamsicle, while replicating the simple joy everyone is reminded of when they think about orange creamsicles. To do that, I chose to use just a few simple ingredients – just 3, in fact: orange (duh!), honey, and full fat coconut milk.

Shockingly these three simple and clean ingredients are all you need to do the trick.

If you haven’t tried using full fat coconut milkOpens in a new tab. before, it’s basically magic. For more on this, check out these mini cheesecakesOpens in a new tab. and this strawberries and cream steel cut oatsOpens in a new tab. recipe.

Ingredients
  • 2 naval oranges, plus zest
  • 1 13.5 oz. can full fat coconut milk (not refrigerated), divided
  • 2 tbsp raw honey, divided
Instructions
  1. Before slicing the oranges, zest one teaspoon of orange zest off the peel.
  2. Slice the oranges into wedges and remove the peel and any seeds.
  3. Add the orange wedges into a blenderOpens in a new tab., along with half of the raw honey, full fat coconut milk (reserving 1/3 of a cup), and the orange zest.
  4. Blend this together until fully pureed - you don’t want any chunks so really make sure it’s smooth.
  5. Pour the orange cream mixture into the popsicle moldOpens in a new tab. - make sure only to fill them about 2/3 of the way up in order to leave space for the cream mixture (see instructions below).
  6. Place the popsicle moldOpens in a new tab. into the freezer and freeze for about an hour, until it’s solid enough to hold a popsicle in place without falling over, but not yet frozen.
  7. While the mold is in the freezer, combine the remaining 1/3 cup of the coconut milk with the remaining honey and mix until smooth (you may need to use a whisk).
  8. After an hour, carefully add the popsicle sticks into the center of the popsicles and then carefully pour the sweetened cream mixture to fill the popsicle to the top.
  9. Place back in the freezer and freeze until solid, at least 4-5 hours.

  1. I’m so excited to try this recipe! I’ve never bought coconut milk before. Are all cans the same size? I don’t see a weight listed in the recipe. Thanks!
