I’ve given the classic creamsicle a dramatic upgrade and stuffed it with fresh berries, marshmallow, Greek yogurt and golden Oreos. This simple creamsicle recipe is a crowd-pleaser!
Summer is for swimming.
I spent the weekend swimming in frosting. Buttercream vanilla frosting. This isn’t exactly a negative thing. Some people swim in crystal blue ocean waters…we swim in sweet, buttery frosting.
Maddie and I made 150 cupcakes for a graduation party on Sunday. As far as bakery orders go, this is one of our favorites. Cupcakes are fairly painless and fuss-free to make. Except when your purple and gold sprinkles bleed onto the white icing unexpectedly. And you have to start back at square one. Ugh. There were cups upon cups of powdered sugar, spatulas full of butter and little sprinkles in every nook and cranny of our kitchen.
This is why we don’t normally make a business from selling our baked goods. Taking orders and having to give the customer perfectly baked items according to their exact specifications? Although we generally enjoy it, it’s not exactly for us. Giving away cupcakes, cakes and cookies? Yes. All the time.
Except when it comes to this creamsicle recipe. These cool, refreshingly fruity creamsicles are not going anywhere except in my belly. I blame this on the fact that it is harder to give away popsicles. You know…because of the melting issue.
But the reality is, I just wanna keep all of this Patriotic Marshmallow Creamsicle recipe to myself.
I’ve been wanting to try my hand at making popsicles since last summer. I never made it a priority, but then my contributors have shared their own versions of popsicles….strawberry yogurt, raspberry cheesecake, caramel fudge….They inspired me. And this patriotic marshmallow creamsicle recipe was born.
When I tested that recipe, I knew I could tweak it just a bit and get a fun, layered creamsicle recipe that would be easy and delicious.
My family went crazy for this creamsicle recipe. I definitely scored points with the husband. I had to test and tweak this recipe to get it perfect for you about 3 times and he was not unhappy about that. He’s normally not a marshmallow lover, but he said he fell in love with marshmallows all over again.
I guess that’s a good thing? Although after seeing his face as he bit into one of these sweet pops, I may have been just a little jealous.
One last hint. I don’t have popsicle molds, so I used paper cups and tore the paper off after the pops were frozen and ready to eat. Honestly? I prefer it this way.
You get a bigger creamsicle, after all 🙂
Make this creamsicle recipe for your kids and pass them out when they are done swimming in that
frosting water. They’re the perfect ending to a summer day!
