Reviews for Orange Creamsicles
"I use Vanilla light yogurt and orange juice, and it makes a very nice Weight Watcher treat."
"When I think of creamsicles I think of a creamy flavor. With using yogurt I thought this tasted too tart."
"I used two six ounce vanilla yogurt and one six ounce orange yogurt. Not too tart and sweet enough."
"A very tasty treat, but would add just a bit of sugar. Kind of tart for little kids."
"was so hard had to wait for it to thaw a bit before could eat it. Put in 6 muffin tins, as didn't have any wooden sticks. was very orangeie."
"I tasted the batter before I froze them and decided it needed more sugar (I used Splenda). I also used Greek yogurt to up the protein. They weren't bad, but I will let my 4 year old grandson test them and see what he says!"
"Disappointing because they were just too tart. If made again, will add sweetner, and less OJ."
"I made it according to directions. a bit tangier than my husband liked. I would add a touch of stevia to make it a touch sweeter. I would also drain the yougurt for an hour or so to take a bit of the 'tang' that a few folks might not care for.Great texture! Other fruits will work well too!Thanks!"
"These turned out really well- I made them with Greek yogurt and I added 1 t. orange extract and some Splenda to them to add more flavor and sweetness. My kids loved them!"
"the first time I made it exactly as directed, the second time I made these, I picked some oranges off my tree and added the fresh orange juice and pulp and it was great. I also made these using my fresh peaches that I puree in the blender first and then add them to the yogurt and freeze. my grandkids love these, and they are healthy too."
"It was super fast and easy to make, but the taste wasn't what i really wanted. my next time i will use just a drop of vanilla."
"These were good, but tart. I would recommend adding some sugar."
