Popsicle Wednesday:{Orange Cream Sicle}



Refreshing. Healthy. Satisfying. How often can those three words be said about a store bought popsicle?! Well now you can forget about buying those less than good for you things at the store, and start making your own at home! 

What You Need: 


2 cups of fresh squeezed orange juice.
Yes, it is preferred you squeeze the juice yourself for the best taste and nutritional value.
1 cup organic vanilla low-fat yogurt
1 cup lite coconut milk
1 T. pure vanilla extract
1-2 T. Agave nectar
Popsicle molds


                          How To:
                                 
                               Wash the oranges prior to cutting them open.
 Using a juicer or by hand, squeeze out 2 cups of juice into a large glass measuring cup.
   Add all the other ingredients to the fresh squeezed juice and gently stir to blend together.
                                 Pour into popsicle molds and freeze.



                               So there you have it!
               A healthier version of the Orange Creamsicle!
We hope you are inspired to squeeze some oranges, and make up a batch of childhood memories!
                                                      Remember, keep it Homespun!

                                                   Come my children, listen to Me;
                                               I will teach you the fear of the Lord.
                                               Psalm 34:11

  7. Agave nectar is a natural sweetener and most grocery stores caryy it. Look for it in either the health food area or with the honey

  8. So cute!

    I’d love it if you shared this with the Fun Family Crafts audience.
    FFC is similar to Craftgawker but it only features kid friendly tutorials.

    Looking forward to seeing what fun crafts you submit!
