Endless Poptails: Orange Creamsicles
Competing against the fruit based poptails this week is an ice cream based poptail. Remember those orange creamsicles when you were a kid–bright sugar glowing orange on the outside and ice cream on the inside around the stick?
I’m here this week to bring back that bit of nostalgia with an adult twist, but without any adult complication.
In staying that with that theme, I skipped the sheathing or any swirling or layering finishing effect for a 1 bowl, 3 ingredient, simple-style poptail. That’s right I threw the chopped up Valencia oranges, vanilla ice cream and Marshmallow vodka all into a food processor bowl and pulse, whirl, pour – done. It’s spot on like the orange creamsicle but with a heavy hint of booziness.
Parting note: Forget the napkins, popsicle drips are best wiped away by using the front of your shirt -just ask any kid.
Orange Creamsicle Poptails
- 1lb oranges, peeled (about 2 medium-large oranges)
- 1 ½ cups vanilla ice cream
- 5 oz. marshmallow vodka
- Place oranges, vanilla ice cream and vodka into a blender or food processor and pulse until smooth.
- Pour the mixture into popsicle mold. Cover top of popsicle mold with foil. Cut a tiny hole in the center of each well. Insert popsicle stick through the hole. Place in freezer until frozen. To release popsicles, run hot water over outside of mold for 2-3 seconds.
