Summer Price Healthy CreamsicleWith 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.

Healthy Creamsicle

Ingredients:

  • 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!

  2. I almost didn’t stop by because so many recipes these days have tons of ingredients, half of which I can’t get on the island where I live. But this not only looks yummy, it looks doable! Definitely going to give this a try over the weekend.

    • I’m glad it is doable. Hopefully you enjoy them and I’m glad you took the time to stop by.

  3. I was going to pass this by but then thought, wait, you have a 4-year-old granddaughter who might love to make this with me. And another reason is I’m giving up my nightly ice cream, well almost nightly. This could be a new substitute. Id have to get those holders, but first we can do it as a shake. Pinning to save

    • That is a great goal, hopefully, this can help fill in that ice cream craving. My kids liked the creamsicles although one of them said it was a little too strong so next time I might use less zest also.
