When my kids are home from school, they are usually ravenous come mid-afternoon. Providing a snack that steadies the blood sugar, provides nutrition, and is yummy to boot can be a real challenge! Healthy, no sugar creamsicles are a usual favorite when the weather is warm and never fail to please!

Homemade Creamsicles

Best of all, these homemade creamsicles are a snack you can prepare ahead and have ready at a moment’s notice.

No need to stock the pantry with the backside bulging boxes of cookies, crackers, and chips from the store that are sure to make your child grumpy and lazed out on the couch in front of the TV or playing video games.

Pitch those boxes of store creamsicles too that loaded with GMO sugar, additives and chemicals and get creative! This healthy alternative is made with only enzyme rich, fresh pressed juice and heavy grassfed cream to slow the carb absorption to a crawl so no sugar crash 30 minutes later. They are a healthy alternative you can try right away!

Note that they make more than a great snack too. Medicinally, they are wonderful to have on hand in the freezer as a quick sore throat remedy to comfort a child with something cold that isn’t sugary.

Also, if you prefer not to freeze the recipe below, it makes for a healthy glass of breakfast OJ too.

In this video lesson below, I demonstrate how to quickly make no sugar creamsicles using the fresh pressed juice of your choice. I prefer to use orange juice as it is readily available fresh where I live. Alternatively, you can use homemade orangina or fermented lemonade to create a probiotic loaded creamsicle.

Use whatever is seasonally available for you.

  1. Mix fresh orange juice and cream well with a whisk so there are no lumps. You can sometimes get freshly squeezed orange juice in season at the healthfood store.

  2. Pour into nontoxic popsicle containers (I like these) and place in the freezer until thoroughly frozen.

  3. Enjoy your delicious homemade creamsicles anytime! They are especially refreshing after an afternoon of hot yard work, for a light dessert after dinner or even for breakfast if you dare!
