Homemade creamsicles are a staple in our house. Use some tart tangerine juice to get that perfect creamsicle flavor. This post contains affiliate links. Thank you for your support.
My very favorite popsicle growing up was a creamsicle. With the tart orange flavor paired with the smooth vanilla custard, it was heaven for me while I sat on my porch in Beaverton, Oregon. But now I can make my very own homemade creamsicles! It was so easy and they're delicious.
- half & half
- heavy cream
- tangerine juice (I bought mine at Trader Joe's but you can use Natalie's) *they make TJ's juice, FYI)
- popsicle mold
- 1 cup half & half
- 1/2 cup heavy cream
- 1 cup tangerine juice
- 2 teas granulated sugar
- Mix all ingredients in a spouted bowl. Pour into popsicle molds and add the sticks.
- Freeze for at least 4 hours until set. Run the mold until warm water to help release the creamsicle. Enjoy.
Nothing makes me enjoy summer more than telling my kids to grab a popsicle and go outside to enjoy the sun. I know what is exactly in these homemade creamsicles and I feel good about giving them to my kids.
I don't go super crazy because of the high cream content but these are something that they can enjoy because it's something that they put the effort in to and now they're enjoying the fruits. Tell me, what is the food item that takes your back to your childhood? These homemade creamsicles are right up my alley and take me back to Portland every time. Enjoy!

I am a BIG fan of Orange ice lollies and I am going to try and make some this week ( oranges are on special !!)
You have to! They’re delicious!
love the creamsicle flavor – this would be something fun to do with my niece & nephew – they love this sort of thing around the pool!
That is such a great idea!
Make anything homemade and from scratch is always the way to go. No preservatives and all natural perfect.
that’s what I love most about these!
These sound great! I am sure my kiddos would be all about these, and I can’t wait until it gets warm out!
We finally have spring break so I’m going to make another batch to last us the week!
This would be a very rewarding project to do with the kids! Thanks for sharing.
My kids thought these were delicious and truth be told, I could just eat it without being frozen 😉

These look great! This summer I need to be better at making our own popsicles. I have more than enough molds, for sure!
I own a ton of molds and really only use them to do blog posts. But these are heaven so I make them quite a bit.
Looks so yummy!!
I love creamsicles. These sound amazing. I can’t wait to try them. Shared and pinned. Thank you for sharing at Grandma’s House link party.

I didn’t even know tangerine juice was a thing! Going to have to look for it (we don’t have a Trader Joe’s). #ThriftyThursday
Orange will work just as good but it’s just not as tart. Natalie’s Juice is available in some states too.

I’ve decided that 2017 is the summer of Popsicles in my house and these look so good! Do you think they’d work with 2% milk instead of the half-and-half?
I’d do 1/2 and 1/2 before milk but it’d definitely work with both.
I love how this is all natural and the addition of the tangerine was a bit surprising. Pinning.
