Orange Creamsicle Ice Cream

Orange Creamsicle Ice Cream: Savory Sweet and Satisfying

Growing up a creamsicle popsicle was one of my favorite treats. I did not get them often, but when I did, I savored every bite. Then during my college years I had a drink that tasted just like those creamsicle popsicles. Now I have taken the wonderful taste of a creamsicle and turned it into an ice cream.

Orange Creamsicle Ice Cream


  • 1 cup half and half
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon orange extract
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1 orange, zested
  • 2 cups heavy cream


  1. Place freezer safe container, for storing the ice cream, in the freezer.
  2. In a large bowl whisk together the half and half and sugar until the sugar is dissolved.
  3. Whisk in both extracts, the orange juice and orange zest. Stir in the heavy cream.
  4. Pour the mixture into an ice cream maker and churn according to the manufacturer's directions.
  5. Remove the storage container from the freezer and transfer the ice cream into it. Put the lid on the container and place in the freezer. Freeze for about 4 hours.
