Ice cream has long been one of the best snack foods ever! This Homemade Orange Creamsicle Ice Cream Recipe is a cross between a really smooth creamy ice cream and a more fruity icy sherbet. Best of both worlds and it is mostly fruit!
We recently tried this recipe that was provided to us by : SuperHealthyKids.com. We were so amazed at the awesome taste and health benefits that we wanted to share it! #DIY
- This ice cream is literally the easiest thing to make.
- A couple of hours before you want to make this, peel and section 2 oranges.
- Lay them flat on a tray and freeze until solid.
- Once they are frozen, pour one can of coconut milk into your blender.
- Add half the frozen oranges and blend. Then add the other half and continue blending.
- Add the rest of the ingredients. Then pour into a container that you can freeze.
- Freeze until it has hardened – a couple of hours is all it takes.
We love this recipe because it is dairy free and includes whole fruit! If you don’t like the taste of coconut milk and don’t need to do dairy free, you can always substitute heavy cream or half and half for the coconut milk. Either way this ice cream is super yummy and incredibly easy to make!
