Indulge your senses with these dreamy blood orange creamsicles. These flavor filled popsicles deliver a nostalgic experience, tasting somewhere between those cream saver candies and the frozen classic creamsicle treat we all love. Made with freshly squeezed blood orange juice, heavy cream, greek yogurt, and all natural honey, these treats are a must for blood orange season.
Rich, creamy, sweet, and slightly tart. These treats take on a beautiful pink hue, and their creamsicle texture is spot on. If you find yourself abundant with blood oranges, make these blood orange creamsicles and watch them disappear like magic.
Blood oranges are typically sweeter than other oranges. And one blood orange contains 75 percent of the daily recommended value of vitamin C!

I have been making these for two years now, and decided I wouldn't let the opportunity pass to share them on the blog ! They come just in time for valentines when I'm craving all the sweet and pink!
