ORANGE CREAMSICLE ICE CREAM RECIPE
The nostalgic flavor of this Orange Creamsicle ice cream, also known as a 50-50 bar, reminds us of the days of the neighborhood ice cream truck!  We can still hear the music now!   The Creamsicle was brought to us by the Popsicle company, which originated in San Francisco in 1905, when an 11 year old boy accidentally freezing powdered soda and water in a cup with a stick in it.

The Creamsicle comes in several flavors, but to us the orange is iconic. It’s filled with creamy vanilla ice cream in the center, surrounded by a coating of orange popsicle.  Try this easy to make ice cream recipe with your Blendtec or Vitamix blender, and for an even lower calorie version, use fat free or sugar free non-dairy creamer.

HEALTH BENEFITS & FUN FACTS
When it comes to popular fruit, oranges come in near the top of the list even outdistancing their nearest competitors-tomatoes, bananas, and apples-when it comes to Vitamin C content.  Indeed, some say oranges are the poster child for this vitamin.

Herperidin, a much researched phytonutrient found in oranges, is known to support the reduction of high blood pressure, cholesterol, and inflammation associated with arthritis, asthma, fibromyalgia, and heart disease.  Nearly fifty studies show that a diet high in citrus provides a forty to fifty percent reduced risk of cancer of the esophagus, stomach, mouth, larynx, and pharynx.  Orange peels are said to lower cholesterol more effectively than some prescription drugs.  Go ahead and drop them in the blender with this delicious Orange Creamsicle Ice Cream recipe and make use of this medicine normally thrown out with the trash.

In the United States, August 14 has been named as National Creamsicle Day, so make sure you blend up some of this yummy treat in its honor!

      Of course you may! Thank you for the question. We like the texture this recipe has with dry milk as it mixes with the other liquid. Ice cream can be tricky and with regular milk it was not as thick. You can try replacing with half and half for a creamier/thicker consistency than what regular milk will give you. Let us know how it goes! :)
