Dreamy Orange Creamsicle Shake

3 ingredients and 5 minutes is all that is standing between you and this fabulous Dreamy Orange Creamsicle Shake.  It's bursting with orange flavor and is incredibly creamy. It is an amazing treat that will knock your socks off!  

Do you remember those orange ice pops with the cream filling? I absolutely loved those growing up and those are exactly what I was thinking of when I developed this fabulous shake. I knew however it all came together it had to be easy. Time is a commodity that I don't give away easily.

I believe that simple cooking should taste great and that is where International Delight comes in. The Fat-Free & Sugar-Free French Vanilla flavor has been my favorite lately. Adding the creamer to this recipe in place of heavy cream, not only saves on sugar and fat grams (a nice addition), it really packs a wallop of flavor.  This Dreamy Orange Creamsicle Shake comes together in just 5 minutes and is a perfectly satisfying treat that is light on the hips.

I really try to make some smart choices to save a few fat grams here and there and this Orange Creamsicle Shake is the perfect way to save those grams so I can enjoy a treat without the guilt.

So tell me, how do you keep your self in check? What little things do you do to make a better you?


With love from our simple kitchen to yours.

Dreamy Orange Creamsicle Shake
SERVES 4 (8 ounce shakes)  |  ACTIVE TIME 5 Min  |  TOTAL TIME 5 Min

1 cup International Delight Fat Free & Sugar Free French Vanilla Creamer
2 cups store bought orange juice, frozen into ice cubes
sugar free whipped cream
fresh orange slices, optional

Combine creamer and orange juice cubes in a blender, use pusher or scrape down sides until mixture is of shake consistency.  Add additional creamer or milk if you need to thin it out more.

Pour about 3 ounces of shake into the bottom of an 8 ounce glass.  Add a dollop of whipped cream.  Add about 3 ounces more of shake, and then add another dollop of whipped cream.  Give shake a light stir to swirl whipped cream and shake.  Add 2 ounces of shake and top off with a dollop of whipped cream and a fresh orange slice.

Repeat until all glasses are filled.

Serve and enjoy!

COOK'S NOTES: If you would like your shakes to appear more orange, add a few drops of orange food coloring.

If you don't have time to freeze the orange juice, you can use 2 cups of ice cubes in your mixture. Be aware that the flavor will be more mild due to the addition of ice.

  1. Donna - this really speaks to me - I always loved dreamsicles! How do I keep myself in check? I don't think I have perfected this but will add that exercise seems to make all the difference for me. More water, more exercise and limited breads and treats helps - which is perfectly unfortunate!

  2. Did you know you can still buy Dreamsicles?

  3. My husband loves creamsicles. I think he will enjoy this.
    How do I keep myself in check? Make sure I'm in bed early to get a good nights sleep and pray. Together it helps me be "good mommy" rather than "mean mommy".

  4. I want one of these right now! This looks so good!

  5. Omg! Love it... Very close to something I had at one of my favourite restaurants back home. Thanks for the recipe though could the creamer be substituted by anything else? Thanks 😃

  6. Creamsicles were in my Top 3 growing up! I make the full fat version in a smoothie in the summertime with Hagaan Daas vanilla bean ice cream with orange crush soda. I know, I

    I can't wait to try this one out! I obviously haven't been keeping myself in check with calories but I've finally jumped on the bandwagon a few months ago and am feverishly pinning healther versions of my favorite foods to keep the fat and sugar down with the goal of cutting sugar out altogether. Thank you for making it easier for me to find the options to do just that!!

  7. Where did you find Fat Free & Sugar Free in the same bottle?

  8. This looked so good until I read the ingredients! A CUP OF CREAMER??? No WAY I am giving that to my children! We make our orange creamsicle shakes with orange cream Yoplait yogurt, frozen orange slices and orange juice.

    1. that's for 4 servings.

  9. I make these for a treat in the evening for my husband and myself and they are wonderful and the and children love them too
