Creamsicles are not very healthy, but these homemade creamsicles are! Because we're using grass-fed cream and pastured egg yolks, these creamsicles are rich in vitamin K2, the fat soluble activator that prevents cavities and helps build strong bones. And they're sweetened with honey instead of sugar (or high fructose corn syrup).
This recipe is modified from the Homemade Creamsicle recipe by Jennifer McGruther at the Nourished Kitchen.
The creamsicles need to freeze for 12 hours. so be sure to manage the little ones' expectations.
If you do not have popsicle molds, try using Dixie cups and wooden popsicle sticks. Pour the mixture into the cups, place in the freezer on a baking tray, and after four to six hours, place popsicle sticks into the center of each cup and continue to freeze for at least an additional six hours.
Oranges, fresh, organic if possible (8)
Honey (up to 1/3 cup) — where to buy honey
Sea salt, a pinch
Eggs, pastured or free range organic (4) —
Cream, grass-fed, raw if possible (2 cups)
Whole milk, grass-fed, raw (2 cups) — where to buy milk
Vanilla extract, organic (1 tsp) — click for the recipe
1. Zest 2 of the oranges using a microplane or fine cheese grater. Add the zest to a medium saucepan.
2. Using a fork or lemon reamer, remove the juice from 6 to 8 oranges, or enough to yield 2 cups of juice. Add the juice to the saucepan.
3. Add the honey and sea salt and heat it over medium heat until reduced by half.
4. Remove from the heat and allow to cool to room temperature (pour into another bowl to cool it faster — if you’re really in a hurry, put the bowl in the fridge).
5. Crack the eggs, separating the yolks from whites. Discard the whites, or refrigerate or freeze for another use.
6. Whisk together the 4 yolks, the cream, milk and vanilla extract. Continue whisking until all of the ingredients are very well combined.
7. Whisk the orange juice mixture together with the egg yolk mixture. Note: If your orange juice mixture is not yet room temperature, you can temper the liquids: slowly dribble the hot liquid into the bowl of the egg yolk mixture while whisking. Do this slowly and keep whisking the whole time — otherwise you’ll cook the eggs.
8. Pour the creamsicle mixture into the popsicle molds and freeze until solid, at least twelve hours.

Support Me & My Work
I have been blogging about real food, alternative health, and about the dangers of vaccines and Big Pharma since 2007. As a result, the cabal has punished me severely financially via the IRS, FTC, hacks, etc. I lost my blog network in 2014 which I now believe was an orchestrated attack. Last summer, I lost 80% of my income from my blog due to the Google algorithm change that impacted almost all health bloggers including Dr. Mercola.I'm now working to build my blog and YouTube channel and I appreciate all the support from my fans. Once I can start making more money, I will be able to hire some help and childcare, so I can create more content. Thank you for any help you can offer. Here are some ways you can support me as a content creator and journalist:
- Support me on Patreon (I'm still setting up the bonuses from the tiers but you can start donating now).
- Buy my shampoo or skincare. Want more info? Read my review of MONAT. Or click here to learn how to order MONAT and save the most money. Got questions? Send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or if you need help placing an order.

- Enroll in my online course: Online Marketing Simplified. Updates to the course are temporarily on hold so I can cover Q -- but I will be back to adding course lessons as soon as the storm is over and we are out of quarantine -- any week now!
- If you can't help financially, it's OK! You can help by sharing my content. Share my blog posts, YouTube videos, and Facebook & Instagram posts, and leave me comments. Sharing helps get my work seen -- and liking and commenting helps boost the content in the search engine algorithms.
