These creamy vanilla-flavored orange juice pops will transport you back to the days of standing in line at the ice cream truck. Add a couple drops each of yellow and red natural food dye to give them a more vivid orange color.

Just like an orange dreamsicle! I started making my own popsicles to avoid all the added sugar that the store brands put in their popsicles. So, I left out the added sugar in the recipen, and the popicles are still delicious and sweet!
