I came across this recipe on one of the many facebook groups that I belong to and as soon as I saw it I wanted to make it! As a kid there was something special about orange creamsicles that made everything right in the world. I think because there really is no other taste quite like it. I mean, orange and cream? Who thought of that one? Genius I tell ya. And I just so happened to have a popsicle maker that was given to me by a good friend of mine (thanks Bryan). So now I am able to put it to good use.
This modified recipe comes from the Super Healthy Kids Blog. I love recipes that only have a handful of ingredients and no cooking or baking is involved. It is truly sweet and simple.

1 cup coconut milk (Native Forest brand)
1/4 banana (optional)
2 oranges, peeled and sectioned
1/2 teaspoon vanilla bean paste or 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
Peel and section the oranges and put them in the freezer for about 30 minutes. After 30 minutes combine the oranges, banana, coconut milk and vanilla bean paste (or extract) in a blender and puree. Fill up popsicle maker, ice cube trays with toothpicks (cover with plastic wrap then poke through with toothpicks), or just fill a tupperware container and then freeze it for a couple of hours or more.
Enjoy a nice cool treat!
