Sweet and fresh oranges mixed with the creaminess of our favorite childhood orange creamsicle made into a smooth no-churn ice cream!
Whole Fruit Ice Cream
My two younger kids love oranges and will eat them in any form – cuties, navel oranges, peeled, sliced, canned, in a smoothie…… But my oldest daughter is super picky about fruit and textures and will not eat oranges. I love being able to create recipes with whole fruit that include all those good nutrients, but change the texture so that she will eat it!
How to Make Homemade Fruit Ice Cream
This ice cream is literally the easiest thing to make. A couple of hours before you want to make this, peel and section your oranges. Lay them flat on a tray and freeze until solid. Once they are frozen, pour one can of coconut milk into your blender. I LOVE my Blendtec – I literally use it every single day. There are SO many things you can make in it and it just works so well. Add the rest of your ingredients into the blender and blend until smooth and creamy. Then pour into a container that you can freeze. I used a glass bread pan and it worked great! Freeze until it has hardened – a couple of hours is all it takes.
Dairy Free and Low Sugar
I definitely teach my kids that its ok to have treats. I also teach them that homemade treats are the best kind! Not only to they taste better (in my opinion), but you can control the ingredients and put into them exactly what you want (and leave out what you don’t want). This Orange Creamsicle Ice Cream only has 4 ingredients and is a great treat to make if your kids have allergies. It is dairy free, much lower sugar than most other ice cream, and is quick to whip together!
