With the weather warming up my kids are chomping at the bit for summer activities already. No, it is not warm enough to run in the sprinkler!
I thought it would be fun to make them a healthy popsicle though. Creamsicles were probably one of my most favorite treats growing up so I decided to have a treat for myself too!
Mmmm so good! If you don’t have the patience to wait for this to freeze and eat it as a creamsicle it would make a great smoothie too.
Speaking of not having patience. Two of my kids had their creamsicles before I could get a picture 😀 oh well.
- 1 frozen banana
- 1 small orange (zested first and then peel the white pith off)
- 3/4 cup frozen peaches
- 1 Tbs chia seeds
- 1/2 cup coconut milk
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- zest from half an orange (optional)
Blend all of the ingredients well in a blender and either drink as a smoothie or freeze in popsicle molds until frozen (at least 4 hours).
*Tips … Remove as much of the white pith as possible so it isn’t bitter. Also, I doubled the recipe because I wanted to make lots of creamsicles. I doubled everything except the zest. Doubling the recipe made 10 creamsicles and 4 push-pops with a little left over to drink.
Easy, delicious & healthy!
