It’s August, it’s hot, and you’re most likely running to your freezer to cool off. What could be more refreshing than the cool creamsicle combo of orange and vanilla? It’s National Creamsicle Day, and if you’re bored of the typical popsicles, we’ve got two fun and create recipes to celebrate.

Want to experience a creamsicle like you never have before? Top Chef winner Richard Blais makes a creamsicle shake. He crafts his shake with a sorbet recipe that features – you guessed it – liquid nitrogen, and a recipe for a homemade vanilla whipped cream. If you don’t want to take it to that level, you can use store bought sorbet and whipped cream.

These cute little ice cream sandwiches would be super fun to make with kids. Just take two small vanilla wafer cookies, and scoop orange sherbet between them to make sandwiches. Easy-peasy and delish!

So what do you think, would you rather eat a creamsicle-inspired dessert, or an actual creamsicle? Tell us below!
