I was worried that the kidlets wouldn't like them too much, but they did. (Out of a batch of 10, one day later I only had 5 left to photograph!) I spent more time peeling the oranges to make the juice than I did putting together the ice pops. It took 5 oranges to make approximately one and a half cups of juice in the juicer. I used my handy immersion blender to combine the juice, heavy whipping cream, vanilla, orange zest and stevia. The stevia was just to add a bit of sweetness. I only used one packet. You could also use honey, simple syrup or other sweetener. If you use commercial orange juice you probably won't need any additional sweetener at all. Once blended, pour evenly into your ice pop maker (I use the Norpro), insert your sticks and freeze.
