Sugar-free creamsicle recipe that uses fresh juice and healthy fat to prevent the blood sugar crash and mood swings that occur with store brands.
When my kids are home from school, they are usually ravenous. 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. They never fail to please!
Best of all, this frozen treat is 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!
No Sugar and Healthy Fats!
This healthy alternative is made with only enzyme-rich, fresh-pressed juice, and heavy grassfed cream.
Use coconut cream for those that are dairy-sensitive.
The healthy fats slow the carb absorption to a crawl so no sugar crash or meltdown an hour later.
Note that they make more than a great snack too. Medicinally, they are wonderful to have on hand in the freezer.
They are perfect 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 the video included with the recipe below, I demonstrate how to make no sugar creamsicles. The trick is to use fresh pressed juice of your choice.
I prefer to use orange juice as it is readily available fresh where I live.
TIP: For extra nutrition, use homemade orangina, fermented Hindu lemonade or this cultured honey lemonade to create a probiotic loaded creamsicle!
Homemade, No Sugar Creamsicles Recipe
Healthy, no sugar creamsicle recipe using fresh juice of choice and a small amount of nourishing fats that prevents the blood sugar crash and grumpies from sugar/chemical loaded commercial popsicles.
- 3 cups fresh squeezed orange juice
- 3 Tbl heavy grassfed cream
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.
Pour into nontoxic popsicle containers (I like these) and place in the freezer until thoroughly frozen.
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!
Do you have any other creative ideas for healthy after school snacks for the kids? Please share in the comments section! I am always seeking new options to mix things up.
I really love your blog!
How about ideas for good quality popsicle push pop molds Sarah?
Can I give homemade ice cream to my 2 and a half yr old toddler (who is following a strict sugar and grain free diet)? What sweeteners can I use? Thank you!
Hi Maria .. I linked to a stainless steel model in the post.
Yes, I saw them but I want molds that my child can squeeze.
I know silicone is not good so I am searching for safer materials.
What do you think? Can you help? Thank you!
I personally prefer stainless steel.
Sarah, where can I buy a good popsicle mold for adults……..not kids. I have been searching the web & cannot find a decent one……….they all seem to be made in China or Japan.
Thanks for all that you do & share.
One word of caution from me…….DO NOT TASTE THE MIXTURE BEFORE FREEZING!!!!! It is terribly addictive! 😉 It is now my favorite afternoon refresher. I mix it with just a little more OJ than cream, and it’s just heavenly on a warm afternoon. Just thought I should warn everyone.;-)
Cindy I use coconut milk it’s a good alternative!
Hi Sarah. I’m not able to get raw or low-temp cream in my area. What should I use to make this. I usually follow the axiom of do the best that I can do with what I have. So in my case, it means purchasing ultra past. cream. Should I forego this treat for my children if I can’t get the good cream? I’ve asked our local dairy owner; he says he doesn’t make enough milk to separate the cream. He does make unhomogenized milk, but there’s not enough cream on top to collect.
I was just wondering if you have this recipe (creamsicles) in print form? I’m on dial-up and cannot open the videos!!
Oh my! And I just found Jamie’s fudgesicle recipe. Also a must try! ~Lisa
