This fun, frozen dessert is easy enough for the kids to help make. Plus, as it's a Recipe Makeover, it's much lighter than a traditional recipe!

Yield: 6 x creamsicles
Although orange creamsicles can be purchased ready-made and can be somewhat low in calories, store-bought regular orange creamsicles are made with higher-fat ingredients, lots of added sugar, artificial flavorings, and colorings. Or, if made at home, traditional recipes generally call for high-fat, high-sugar ingredients.
However, this madeover recipe replaces higher-fat ice cream with lower-fat, sugary orange sherbet with healthier yogurt and orange juice concentrate. And, the added bonus is that the family can have fun making them.
In a large bowl, mix softened ice cream, juice concentrate and yogurt, stirring until thoroughly blended.
Pour into paper cups. Cover each cup with foil. Make a slit in foil with a knife and insert stick into orange mixture. Freeze until hard (about 6 hours). Remove foil and paper cups to serve.
If preferred, use no-added-sugar ice cream and yogurt.
