Last year I found a new blog called Wonky Wonderful, and almost a year ago today she posted a recipie for these Orange Creamsicle’s and I knew then that I would have to make them (yeah, it is sad it took me a year to actually do it, but hey I am slow). You see I can remember running out to the ice cream truck growing up and getting those oh so yummy orange push-up pops. They were so good, but it is hard to find that flavor anywhere, until now!
The original Push-up Pop’s
These may not look quite as orange as the originals but that is because there is no food coloring in these. They do however taste every bit like the ones I remember, so creamy and yummy. My girls loved making them even though they did not care for my stores about running out to the ice cream truck to get these. As a matter of fact they just wanted to know why we don’t have ice cream tucks that come to our house… so not the point I was trying to make but oh well.
A few hours after putting these babies in the freezer we were able to pull them out and enjoy them. The kids LOVED them! I can see that we will have to make these again and soon.
Please note that the push up containers we found at the craft store I think are actually made for small cupcakes. So they had some holes in the bottom of them. That is okay I was not going to let a few silly holes stop me from making a push-up pop (because it would not have been the same to me in a Popsicle mold). I just pulled out my trusty glue gun and sealed up the holes from the outside, worked like a charm and I had no issues with leaking!
A note on the recipe, Nicole over at Wonky Wonderful used ultra fine sugar. I did not have any on hand and was too lazy to go to the store so I just used regular sugar and then threw everything in the blender to mix it up. She also added some pieces of oranges which sounds super yummy and I will probably try that next time too but once again too lazy to go to the store. Your choice how you make them I have a feeling you can’t go wrong with these they are too good.
