I LOVE a good creamsicle! I ate them all of the time as a kid! It was probably one of my most favorite treats growing up.
So with the weather warming up my kids are chomping at the bit for summer activities already. I have to keep telling them “No, it is not warm enough to run in the sprinkler!”
I thought it would be fun to make them a healthy popsicle though. And creamsicles popped into my head so I decided to see if it was possible to make them a little bit healthier so I felt good about having the treat too.
Mmmm so good! If you don’t have the patience to wait for this to freeze and eat it as a creamsicle it made 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.
My sister got these Joie monster popsicle molds for me a few years ago and I absolutely LOVE them! They stand up nicely in the freezer, the kids think they are cute, they can set them down if they want to & they catch drippy messes!
These Silicone Ice Pop molds are great too, you don’t have to worry about the popsicle sticking to the sides, you just push it right up and you can set these down too without getting popsicle juice all over the counter.
