Keto Orange Creamsicle Fat Bombs
The flavor of an orange creamsicle brings me back to my childhood. There is something irresistible about the combination of citrus and vanilla. Indeed, orange creamsicles are sometimes called “dreamsicles”– and I can see why! They’re dreamy.
So, why this recipe? I think bringing some quick and easy recipes really help people that are just starting out or trying to find new recipes for simple things.
Fat bombs are pretty great for a quick and simple dessert or a snack midday. They’re packed full of fats and are perfect for a ketogenic diet
Want a fun history lesson? Of course I do!
The beloved orange creamsicle is a close cousin of the popsicle, which was invented in 1905 by an enterprising kid named Frank Epperson.
At just 11 years old, he mistakenly left a sweet fruity soda concoction on his front porch. The soda had a stirring stick inside. It was a chilly night. Consequently, the next morning, he found the sweet soda had frozen around the stick.
Later, in 1923, Epperson patented his creation, which he dubbed the “eppsicle.” Once Epperson became a father, his children started calling his sweet treat a “popsicle.”
That name stuck around, and continues to delight dessert lovers today. Epperson also inspired many variations on the original popsicle theme, including the concept of freezing fruit juice around vanilla ice cream – or as we know it, the “creamsicle”
What is a fat bomb?
They’re called “fat bombs“, because they are loaded with fat rich ingredients, like coconut oil and cream cheese, that can fill you up fast and satisfy any sweet craving that might sneak up on you. Fat bombs are essentially energy bites for the keto dieter.
