Fruity Creamsicles


Is it warm right now where you live?
 Of course, if you're in the northern hemisphere, then it is summer time, and hopefully that means sunshine and warm days.
If you're on the equator {like little old me!}, then it's always warm.
And if you're in the southern hemisphere, then you might want to save this recipe...although, being a Michigander, I can eat popsicles year round!
 I originally found this recipe on Pinterest.
I messed with it a little, and the results were delicious!

Fruity Creamsicles 

12 popsicle molds
12 strawberries, hulled and thinly sliced
    OR 2 bananas, thinly sliced
    OR a cup pineapple pieces, thinly sliced
    OR 1 can (10.5 ounces) mandarin orange slices, drained
2 cups orange juice
1 cup cream or half 'n' half

Place the fruit of your choosing in the popsicle molds.

In a glass measuring cup with a pourable spout, combine the orange juice and cream. If you like, you can add a little powdered sugar, but I thought the orange juice was sweet enough without any added sugar.
Pour the juice mixture into the popsicle molds. Insert a popsicle stick into each; freeze until firm, about 2-3 hours. Run the molds under warm water for 30 seconds to loosen the popsicles before eating.

Share with those you love!
