Orange Creamsicles (seriously awesome!)

orange creamsicle recipe


Summer is here! I LOVE summers. I love the BBQs, all the kids playing outside, fireworks, watermelon, bike rides — I am always sad when it ends.

This summer I have decided to do a Mom adventure day once a week with my kids. Our sweet baby is coming in the fall and I want to enjoy this short time with my kids while it is still easy to get out. I got the idea for the Mom adventure days from the Power of Moms website. It has the best info and ideas on being a mom.

I sat down with the kids and came up with a list of things we want to do. Here are a few of our ideas:

  1. Camping in the camper
  2. Mountain biking and camping
  3. Getting a snow cone as big as your head (I have a love for snow cones!)
  4. Taking a picnic up in the mountains
  5. Roasting marshmallows and making s’mores
  6. Biking to the park
  7. Riding the lift at Sundance
  8. Hiking to Stewart Falls
  9. Demolition derby
  10. Rodeo
  11. Plant a garden
  12. Make popsicles
  13. Get a CSA
  14. Catch frogs
  15. Go to the zoo
  16. Go to an outdoor concert
  17. Have popcorn for dinner (who do you think wrote this one? 🙂 )
  18. Go to the water slides
  19. Water balloon toss
  20. Go to  a splash pad
  21. Go out on a boat
  22. Make homemade ice cream
  23. Go to a new park
  24. Fly kites
  25. Make home made salsa
  26. Treasure hunt
  27. Paper airplane contest
  28. Sleep out in the backyard
  29. Do a science experiment
  30. Throw a Frisbee
  31. Go to a farmers market
  32. Pick peaches, make peach shake or ice cream
  33. Nature hike
  34. Alpine slides
  35. Fireworks
  36. Fishing with dad
  37. Drive in movie

Our first summer adventure day was going to my friend’s ranch in Fairview and visiting the Wooly Mammoth Museum.

No summer is complete without adventures and popsicles. These orange creamsicles are probably my favorite popsicles we have made. I like to freeze leftover green smoothies into popsicles. The kids love them for breakfast.  These orange creamsicles taste like dreamsicles.

We got a huge box of oranges from California and juiced all of them. We froze half into ice cubes for smoothies and the other half we made into popsicles (you probably already know that if you have followed me on instagram). I made a big batch of popsicles. I bought a few sets of molds so I would be good to go for awhile.


Pledge here to make Popsicle with your kids this summer and be entered to win a 200$ gift card to Mighty Nest.  They have a lot of great stuff to choose from, plus they will donate money to your school of choice.  The give away will end Wednesday.  Winner will be announced in the next post.

  2. Daniella Hauptmann says:

    Where did you get those adorable popsicle molds?

    • Desi says:

      Hi Daniella! They are so fun aren’t they. I got them at TJ Maxx-so random. But I wonder if you could google monster pops on Amazon?

  3. morgan says:

    Hi, I wanted to know what type of ice pop holder is in the picture from the Orange Creamsicle Recipe?

  4. kate hoteko says:

    so easy and so tasty,thanks .

  5. Emily says:

    We have those same pop molds and my kids love them! I like to make Arbonne protein shakes and freeze them and then the kids can have them for breakfast. Perfect in the summer and extremely healthy! 😀

  6. Thanks for the great recipe ….. I hope you don’t mind if I share with my Tupperware customers who buy our ice tup molds

  7. Chloe waters says:

    Love the list idea.

    • Desi says:

      Hi Chole! Thanks. It has been the funnest summer so far. I think half of the battle is planning. With a list we can just turn to it at the beginning of the week and have a quick plan in place.

  8. Lisa says:

    We make sugar free tea popsicles that taste great. Make a pot of honeybush or rooibus tea, any flavor and let it cool. Add a ¼ cup of milk (any kind, but organic whole milk makes the best creamy pops). Pour into popsicle molds and freeze. Agave nectar can be used to sweeten, if desired.

  9. lane says:

    Desi, this is such a great idea, I am going to adopt it as well as make the popsicles. So fun. I will let you know what we come up with for our adventures!

  10. Rhea says:

    Hi thank you for this recipe, Orange Creamsicles. My husband got excited at Costco and bought 2 boxes. Now they won’t go to waste!


  11. Kathleen says:

    Our current favorite Popsicle I make by blending strawberries and banana with homemade water kefir lemonade. They are absolutely delicious with the added bonus of probiotics.

  12. Carolyn says:

    Can you use lite coconut milk or doesn’t it turn out well?

  13. Selah says:

    Oh my deliciousness!!! I am eating one right now and had to leave a comment. This is the best pop I’ve ever made! I didn’t have any orange extract so I omitted that, but used orange blossom honey I got at my local farmers market. So good! I might need to go have another one…

  14. Krista says:

    There are all types of silly monster face ice cream bowls, molds, push pop, etc at Sobey’s in Canada!

    • Desi says:

      Hi Krista! Oh I wished I loved closer. My kids love the molds. I know they would love bowls and different things too!

  15. Sarah says:

    thank you! Im so tempted to give into the summer treats and this feels so much better to give my kids. We havent tried them yet but they are in the freezer and smell delicious! And really easy to make – such a great idea.
