The Taste of Summer!
August in South Carolina is hot, humid, and sticky. The breeze feels hotter than the base temperature, and the pools and ocean water are no longer refreshing (feels like bath water). These dairy free orange creamsicle pops are a dream come true for surviving the summer heat!
The creamsicle pops are vegan and have no added refined sugar. Simple, clean ingredients are the stars of the show. Adding all of my summer recipes to the blog so that you have time to enjoy them before the cooler weather arrives. Give my blueberry yuzu popsicles a go for even more of a flavor explosion!
Why Dairy Free?
I am not vegan by any means, but I do have gut issues. Dairy is not always my friend, so I try to find alternatives whenever possible. Silk Almond Milk Yogurt was a great find at my local grocery store. It has the slight sourness of regular yogurt without the heaviness of true dairy. Let’s be honest, when you’re enjoying a treat to cool down on a hot day, you don’t really want dairy or the bloat that can result from regular yogurt.
Ice Ice Baby
- Popsicle Molds
- Small mixing bowl
- Measuring cups
- Measuring spoons
- Popsicle sticks
- 1 1/2 cups Silk Almond Milk Yogurt
- Zest of 2 oranges
- Juice of 2 oranges (with pulp)
- Juice of 1 lime
- 2 tbsp maple syrup
Yield: 8 popsicles
Add yogurt and maple syrup to mixing bowl. Zest orange right into bowl. Juice lime and oranges and add to bowl along with some chunks/pulp if desired (avoid seeds). Combine together with rubber spatula
Place funnel into popsicle mold opening and fill 3/4 of the way with mixture. Do the same in the other openings until mixture gone. Place popsicle sticks in each opening. Freeze for at least 3 hours before serving. Will last up to 30 days in freezer left in popsicle mold.
*If difficult to remove from mold, dip mold in warm water for 15-20 seconds and the popsicle should slide out
Tell me, are you making these dairy free orange creamsicle pops before summer is over??Print
