If you haven’t figured this out already, there is a national holiday for absolutely everything every day! As annoying as it is, there’s a part of me that kind of likes it! Take this one for example, Creamsicle Day, I never liked creamsicles but I’m sure my kids would if I made them. So, because today is, you guessed it, Creamsicle Day I thought I’d try it out. I went poking around on Pinterest and found a few healthy versions that actually has me changing my view on the creamsicle!
Large Oranges (I used navel because that’s what I found)
cup Greek yogurt
tsp vanilla extract (divided)
tsp honey (optional—and not use if your child is under 1-year-old)
Peel your oranges, slice them and add them to your blender along with 1 tsp of vanilla extract. If you have a Vitamix that would be preferable but if not just blend the snot out of them till it’s a smooth puree.
In a mixing bowl add your Greek yogurt, 1 tsp of vanilla extract, 1 tsp of honey and whisk till combined.
Fill your popsicle mold a third of the way with your orange puree. Add the yogurt mixture to the top to fill the rest of your mold. With a chopstick or knife push the yogurt gently down around the edges to get any air between the yogurt and orange puree out. This will then slightly combine the yogurt to the puree. Or if you’d prefer to let the “cream” take over give it a few swirls to mix it up!
Place them in the freezer overnight.
