These creamy treats are made with an exotic blend of cinnamon, ginger, orange juice, and coconut milk
I’m dating myself badly here, but I remember the Good Humor Man. He’d drive his white truck through the neighborhood, ringing those signature bells, and kids would run out to get an ice cream fix. Which tome meant just one thing—Cream sic les!
It would just be amazing, I said to Chef Jeannette one day, if you could come up with a healthy version of a Creamsicle! Or at least a “less bad” version of the original.
No problemo, she replied, and within a week or two sent me this terrific recipe, which more than fits the bill. Not convinced? The original Creamsicle contains a dozen or so ingredients, including maltodextrin, maltitol syrup, glycerin, citric acid, guar gum, locust bean gum, and aspartame. Chef Jeannette’s version has orange juice, honey, and ginger. Get my point?
So while these Moroccan Dreamsicles aren’t technically “fast food” ( they do need a bit of freezer time), they really come together in fl ash. And if you threw in a scoop of vanilla protein powder they’d make an instant mini- meal, perfect for August when you want protein but need something cooling. Plus, they’re low in sugar— especially for something that would normally come from the ice cream truck! — Dr. Jonny
