Creamsicle Slushie

This creamsicle slushie is the perfect summer drink! It’s fruity, creamy and really hits the spot when you’re craving something cold.
Creamsicle Slush Recipe

I love the combination of oranges and cream. As a kid, Creamsicles were my absolute favorite Popsicle. Vanilla on the inside, orange on the outside… What’s not to like? Since I didn’t have any on hand, I decided to recreate those flavors in this super simple slushie recipe. And now I’m going to share it with you!


By the way, if you don’t have oranges on hand, it tastes pretty much the same without them. I like the pulp from the oranges, but if you don’t, skip them. Still tasty!

Course Drinks
Servings 2 slushies


  • 3/4 c. orange juice

  • 3-4 orange slices
  • 2 tbsp. white sugar
  • 1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 12-14 ice cubes


  • Add all ingredients to the blender.
  • Pulse until ice is completely crushed and liquid is smooth (about 3-4 minutes).
  • Pour into chilled glasses, and garnish with an orange slice.
  • Enjoy!

And my son wanted me to take a picture of him with his slushie, too. Any time the camera is out lately, he wants in on it. He loves watching himself in videos or looking at his own pictures. Total ham!

As it turns out, he didn’t care much for the slushie because I used the last orange to make it, and that upset him. Ooops. More slushie goodness for Mom, though, amirite?
