What is it about orange creamsicles that are so nostalgic? A call back to simpler times, maybe. Or a taste of nostalgia from those warm summer days as a child.

I’m going to share a few of my favorite orange creamsicle recipes, and hopefully you find something you love as well!

There’s just something so amazing about the combination of tangy-sweet citrus and the creamy vanilla core in that popsicle. Good news – we’re bringing you that same delicious combination but in the form of fudge! It’s not quite as cool, but it’s still incredibly creamy, and now it’s sliceable. (And you only need four ingredients and a microwave to make it.) Get the recipe here!

It’s orange creamsicle dip! With exactly the same flavor as the treats you grew up with, this dip comes together in minutes and is just as good with fresh fruit as it is with nilla wafers…trust us, you need this dip.

Is there anything more summery than an orange creamsicle?? What originated as a creamy, dreamy vanilla and orange popsicle has turned into a cult favorite flavor combo that we are thrilled to be playing around with, resulting in this delectable, warm weather treat. And not only that, but since we decided to make this version of our creamsicle cake a poke cake, the finished result is just as great to look at as it is to eat! Look at all those cute orange swirls – it’s like an orange tie-dye cake! Now for those of you who aren’t familiar with poke cakes, don’t worry, it’s easy. Get the recipe here!

Orange Creamsicle Bars

Fresh orange juice and zest gives these bars bright, tangy flavor, which is balanced out by the light and fluffy cream filling. These cool treats are great to make any time of year, but are especially great in the warmer months, since they don’t require any baking – the freezer does all the work! We whip these up for any backyard get together and they go fast; but don’t take our word for it, give them a try and see for yourself! Get the recipe here!
