This Homemade Creamsicle Recipe is a perfect summer treat. Cooling down in the summer with a Popsicle is a must for everyone in our household (including the hubby). This past weekend I finally broke down and purchased a new Zoku Quick Pop Maker and accessories. I felt the need to spoil myself ha ha! To soften the blow with the hubby and our budget I decided I would make his favorite frozen treat.. Homemade Creamsicles. I have made my Homemade Creamscicle recipes in other pop molds in the past and he always loves them. Making pops at home is so simple and they always taste so much fresher than store bought pops.
Homemade Creamsicle Recipe
I was super excited to make a test run with my new gadgets. I purchased 2 of the Zoku Single Quick Pop Maker as well as the Zoku Storage Case and also the Zoku Chocolate Station. I feel like a princess with all my new pop makers and accessories. You can find the single Quick Pop Maker at TJMaxx too for $19,99 each. But they do no not carry the additional accessories.
After making my first round of pops I will say I am highly impressed with the maker and the storage case. It’s nice to make some pops and just toss them in the storage case for everyone to enjoy their pops when they are ready for them. The pops came out perfect and SUPER tasty! I really liked that I could add the cream to the center of our ops just like store bought pops. If you are considering purchasing a Zoku Single Quick Pop Maker I say GO FOR IT! I wish I would have purchased mine sooner.
Orange Creamsicles were the perfect recipe to make first time using my pop maker. They were so simple to whip and SUPER tasty. This recipe works with a traditional pop maker too, you will just need to allow your first layer to freeze before adding in the cream.
