5 Cool Creamsicles

August 17, 2011

I have memories of playing in the backyard on summer days with creamsicle in hand.  I would race against time, trying to find a balance between eating my creamsicle quickly (so that it didn't turn into a puddle in my hand) and avoid getting a brain freeze.  Although I may have outgrown the backyard, I still have a soft spot for those creamy ice pops.  Here are five fun creamsicle recipes that let you relive those wonderful childhood memories.

Post-Workout Creamsicles
This creamsicle is gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan, corn-free, sugar-free, and yeast-free.  Needless to say, this is one healthy pop.

Strawberry-Rhubarb Creamsicles
This classic flavor duo is delicious in this frozen treat.

Blood Orange Creamsicles
Blood orange juice is sweeter and gives these creamsicles a pink hue.

Avocado Coconut Creamsicles
The pureed avocado makes these creamsicles as smooth as butter.

Purple Potato Creamsicles
This recipe has a unique twist on creamsicles by using purple potatoes as the base.
