Orange Creamsicles are such a nostalgic treat for most of us and the flavors are simply classic...with the perfect amount of sweetness and a touch of creamy fruitiness. I'd probably puree some fresh oranges instead of the orange juice...do you think that would ruin the texture? I just think it would give it a more natural flavor and make it much less bitter.

Lovely recipe, just enough zesty orange flavor to keep it from getting overly sweet. It's becoming a family favorite this summer!

These were flavorful and refreshing! A little bitter but better than being too sweet.
