Homemade Creamsicles

Homemade Creamsicles – I have loved these frozen treats ever since I was a child. Once I realized how easy they were to make at home, I never went back!

Homemade Creamsicles

These homemade creamcicles are not only simple – but rich in flavor, creamy in texture, & satisfying.

If you live in an area where fresh cream is available, I strongly encourage you to use it if you can.  Fresh cream is dense in fat soluble vitamins and conjugated linoleic acid, making it a very nourishing ingredient.  Cream in the grocery stores go through a strong pasteurization process that destroys most of these key nutrients.  You can go to LocalHarvest.org or RealMilk.com to find resources in your area.

This recipe also calls for raw egg yolks, which has really gotten a bad reputation over the years.  Contrary to a lot of peoples beliefs, in actuality – only about 1 in 30,000 store bought eggs are infected, and it is even less among fresh pastured eggs, where the hens are kept in healthier conditions as they are more than likely someones pet.  Raw egg yolks are very beneficial to our health as they contain large amounts of biotin and choline, which are both critical elements to good health. Not to mention all the creamy goodness it adds!

Now, on to the recipe!

Here’s what you need:

Stir the orange juice & honey together in a saucepan, & cook over medium heat until reduced by about half.  I like to use a french whisk…great tool to have in the kitchen!

Allow the OJ/honey mixture to cool to room temperature.  I’m not known for my patience, so I put mine in the freezer to hurry it along.

Whisk the egg yolks, heavy cream, whole milk, orange extract, & vanilla extract together until well combined. Mix in the orange juice/honey syrup.

Pour into popsicle molds, & freeze.  If you don’t have any, you can always use dixie cups instead.

    We used to have something very similar in the UK called mini-milks. You could get plain milk, chocolate or strawberry flavours. I think I’ll have a go at these for my nephews!
