Creamsicles

During summer we make my dairy-free Creamsicles every day because they're so refreshing! The boys love the creamy orange flavor of these amazing paleo popsicles, and I'm thrilled that we can throw them together so quickly. All you need to make to make these orange Creamsicles is 6 healthy ingredients! This recipe calls for coconut milk, orange juice, lemon juice, orange extract, vanilla stevia, and powdered lecithin.

Orange Creamsicles

I use freshly squeezed lemon juice in this low-carb Creamsicle recipe to reduce the amount of sugar while retaining the zingy citrus flavor. The orange juice that I use in this recipe is also fresh squeezed. I don't think this low-carb popsicle recipe will taste all that great with store bought juices from concentrate, so keep that in mind.

What is Lecithin?

Some of you may be wondering why I use lecithin in this recipe. First, lecithin is a wonderfully healthy fat and fantastic dietary supplement for the keto diet. Second, it has an incredibly rich creamy flavor. Finally, lecithin keeps the ingredients in this recipe from curdling and separating. Please note, I use powdered lecithin in this recipe.

Creamsicles were a childhood favorite that I have not eaten in many, many years because of the junk ingredients in the commercially made products. Thanks so much for another great recipe!

I tested this low-carb Creamsicle recipe more than a dozen times using the ingredients above to get it just right. I'm not sure if it will work without any of the ingredients above, with other ingredients, or with various substitutions. The only way to know if replacing one ingredient with another will work is to test the recipe using the ingredients of your choice.

    • Carlene, thanks for your wonderful comment. Colorado heat isn’t as bad as Texas heat, but same, it gives no mercy to MS. Glad these popsicles can offer us some relief :-)
