Sweet and fresh oranges mixed with the creaminess of the favorite childhood orange creamsicle made into a smooth no-churn ice cream!
Orange creamsicles are a delicious frozen treat with sweet and creamy vanilla ice cream surrounded by a tart layer of orange sherbet. I remember enjoying them on hot summer days as a kid, and they were definitely a favorite.
I wanted to recreate this nostalgic frozen treat using fresh whole food ingredients in an easy no-churn ice cream. You will feel great enjoying my Orange Creamsicle Ice Cream with your kids on a hot summer day!
You only need 4 ingredients for this recipe!
This ice cream is literally the easiest thing to make. You don’t need an ice cream maker or any fancy equipement!
The best way to store this ice cream is in an airtight container that has a tight fitting lid. You want to make sure that air doesn’t get into the ice cream to prevent ice crystals from forming and to keep it smooth and creamy.
This will store well for about 2 weeks in your freezer.
Peel and section oranges. Lay flat on a tray and freeze until hardened. This will take about an hour.
In a blender or food processor, add coconut milk and half of the frozen orange sections. Make sure your coconut milk is the full fat kind from a can.
Blend until smooth. Add the remaining oranges and the sweetener of your choice (honey, maple syrup or confectioners sugar) and vanilla extract. Blend until combined.
Pour into a freezer safe container with a tight fitting lid, and freeze until solid.
When ready to serve, let it sit out for a few minutes to make it easier to scoop. Enjoy!
