Blood Orange Creamsicles: Refreshing and Sophisticated

By brooklynsupper |

Orange juice and dairy products don’t sound like a dream pairing, but the success of the Creamsicle and Dreamsicle proves otherwise. Also, I think Orange Julius might involve dairy, too (but I haven’t lived near an Orange Julius since I was six and my memories from that time in my life aren’t always totally reliable). If regular old oranges go well with frozen dairy desserts, blood oranges, with their sweeter flavor and notes of raspberry, are even better. These blood orange ice pops pair blood orange with yogurt for a sweet, smooth, and refreshing treat perfect for a hot day.

Blood Orange Creamsicles
makes twelve 5 oz. creamsicles

2 cups fresh squeezed blood orange juice (6 – 8 medium, or sub in half blood orange and half orange juice)
2 cup plain yogurt
1 tablespoon blood orange zest
1/3 cup (or more, depending on the tartness of the oranges) honey
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
pinch salt

In a large bowl, whisk the yogurt into the juice until smooth. Add the honey, vanilla, and salt. Pour into molds and freeze for 4 hours or overnight. Insert popsicle sticks after 1 hour.
