Homemade Creamsicles!


Here is my newest favorite thing to make in the kitchen :)

Homemade Creamsicles!!
Since we are moving over to this traditional/real/whole foods diet [I can't decide what the proper term is], popsicles and creamsicles are just one more thing to make from scratch. They take hardly any effort and taste much better than the boxed ones. I purchased the Tovolo molds, which are BPA free.

So for my first go-round, I did Banana Mango Creamsicles.


After I peeled the fruit, I threw it into my mini food processor and added about 1 tbsp of honey and probably 1/4 cup of heavy whipping cream - I just eyeballed it.


Then I blended it all together...


...poured it into the molds...


...and waited for them to freeze up!
I made these in the morning and we tried them in the afternoon. If I had to guess, they were in the freezer for 5-ish hours?


And they were delish!
The babe especially enjoyed as he is pushing through a top tooth at the moment!


Next up, Peaches 'n Cream creamsicles with canned peaches for the summer :)

Awesome idea! I'll have to try this recipe. I have popsicle molds that I've never tried. I bet you can use yogurt too instead of heavy cream. Do you think?

Mimi for sure you could use yogurt! That is my next thing to try with them :)
