This Orange Creamsicle Dessert tastes too good to be true, but it’s really Trim Healthy Mama friendly!
Loaded with protein and low in carbs, this Summery dessert is a cinch to put together and doesn’t taste a bit like “diet” food!
You don’t need any special ingredients to make this Orange Creamsicle Dessert. The shortbread-like crust is made from 3 simple ingredients:
The orange creamsicle-flavored filling is made from:
- heavy cream
- sweetener (again, I used xylitol, but Gentle Sweet can be subbed in half the amount)
- Greek yogurt (any fat % will do)
- orange extract
- optional: red and yellow food coloring
The wonderful thing about this dessert is that it sets into a perfect base for decorating with whipped cream and fresh fruit! Most fruit is an “E” fuel type, but you can easily garnish with kiwi, berries, lemon and lime, and still stay in S territory.
Food coloring is totally optional, but if you’d like a soft orange color like I have here to match the flavor, 2 drops of red food coloring and 5 drops of yellow will do.
