Orange Creamsicle Cups {dairy, refined sugar & gluten free}
Prep time
Total time
Serves: 6-8
  • Juice of 3-4 oranges {need 1 cup juice}
  • 1 frozen banana
  • ¼ tsp of orange extract
  • 1 scoop of vanilla/plain protein powder
  • dash stevia {optional}
  1. Squeeze oranges for 1 cup of juice and add it to a strong blender or Vita mix.
  2. Set aside orange halves.
  3. Add frozen banana and extract. Blend till creamy.
  4. Blend in protein powder last.
  5. Taste mixture and add stevia to taste if your protein powder is not sweetened.
  6. Fill orange halves with mixture and freeze overnight or at least 4 hours.
  7. When ready to serve, top with whip cream or coconut cream and add a tangerine slice.
Depending on orange size you may need to use 4 to get 1 cup of juice. If you have extra mixture left over you can freeze them as popsicles or drink as a smoothie. Using a plain or vanilla protein powder is best without added sugars other than stevia. Either a whey or pea protein works fine in this recipe. Please use organic ingredients when you can.
