Orange Creamsicles

Ice cream was something special when I was a kid. We didn't have refrigerator or freezer and the only time we would get to eat ice cream was when we went out to ice cream shops. And the other time was when the ice cream cart would come in front of the house. I still remember one flavor vividly. It used to be a creamy popsicle which would melt in the mouth just like ice cream. And it was flavored with orange and looked bright orange in color. I do not know how they make it, but I tried to mimic it with two ingredients and I should say it was awesome.

One Year Back - Salsa Vinaigrette
Two Years Back - Zucchini Chutney
Cool Whip - 16 Oz tub ( I used low fat, you could use fat free instead)
Frozen Orange juice concentrate - 1 can thawed in the refrigerator (12 Oz)

Thaw the cool whip in the refrigerator. Whisk in the orange juice concentrate to it gently. Pour into popsicle molds or 3 Oz cups and freeze till firm. It doesn't get very firm and is more like ice cream. It takes longer to set than a typical popsicle.

You could use plain orange juice instead and use heavy cream (2 cups) whipped instead. In that case, you will have to add sugar to taste. Frozen orange juice concentrate is very sweet, so didn't have to add any. It was perfect.
