It's hot. Like mega hot. It's over 100 and that's hot for the Pacific Northwest soooooo we're rolling up our sleeves and making popsicles. OKAY OKAY you got me, if you follow me on Instagram then you probably saw that I was also dumb enough to bake when its this hot outside. So smart. By the way - instagram will show you my posts 100% of the time. Facebook? I'm lucky if I get 10%. Yeah you've heard it a million times. I'm working on getting a newsletter going again because that is just ridiculous.
Anyhow yeah popsicles. I made some orange creamsicles that don't have frozen canned orange juice goo and I even got fancy with a vanilla bean. You don't need vanilla beans but I figured what the heck.
Also I tried these with xylitol and it works amazingly well! It also works great with agave so you have options.
Vegan Orange Creamsicles
1 pkg silken tofu (like mori-nu)
4 peeled oranges cut into slices or whatever
1/2 vanilla bean, scraped (or 1 tsp vanilla extract)
1/2 cup xylitol or agave
Blend up with your super duper blender (obviously I used my buddy Blendtec!) and then pour into popsicle molds (this is mine). Put in sticks (so I started using plastic butter knives and it's SO MUCH BETTER THAN WOOD STICKS!!!!!!!!!!) and freeze until solid. Enjoy!
