We don’t do a lot of fruit in the Bejelly household due to watching our sugar intake.  My son tried his first orange a month ago – yes,  my 23-month-old son just ate an orange.   Anyhow, he went gaga over it.  I bought a bag of oranges for him thinking he would eat them in  a week but he ate one and then was done with it.  I’ve had 6 oranges sitting lonesome in my fridge and since I’m on a Popsicle kick, I figured I put a couple to go use.

This Orange Creamsicle Popsicle recipe is super simple and so crazy good.  You might notice that they’re not neon orange and more of a soft buttery yellow.  I didn’t want to mess with using turmeric to deepen the color because the flavor was spot on and I was afraid the turmeric would give it a hint of taste and mess everything up.

Why the salt? I made these and they were so salty I threw them all away. I'll try again sans salt, though.

Hrm . . I've never had an issue with 1/4 teaspoon of salt hun. I'm sorry it didn't work for you.

Thanks for posting this recipe. We have been on GAPS Diet (my 8 year old and myself for 19 months and trying to keep food new and interesting can be a challenge, and we also are limiting fruit and honey). Heading into spring/summer around here and I've been on a popsicle kick. A few weeks ago I made my own concoction of lemon/coconut popsicles a few weeks ago. The most recent batch was a mommypotamus recipe for a fudge pudding pop that had gelatin and avocado. Last night I was trying to decide what would be our next popsicle flavor, and I came up with "orange creamsicle". Can't wait to give these a try in the next day or two. Thanks for also posting approximately many oranges to use.

I would kill for these. I'm the only one in the family who loves coconut but that would just mean more for me!

Good call on not using the turmeric. I actually really like the pretty pale color.

Orange cream is one of my husband's favorites - he'd love this! Is tumeric typically what is used to naturally color 'orange' food?
