Crazy About The Creamy Creamsicle

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on June 27, 2009


Eric did a hilarious post last night on the top 8 things that date our house be sure to check it out! We were in hysterics going around the house taking pictures…we didn’t realize there were so many things to ‘fix-up’!!! Ok, maybe HE did… ;) We read over his post together last night and we were both laughing our asses off. Oh man…some projects in store, or what!?

Eric wants to know- what thing in our house do you think dates it THE MOST! Leave a comment on his post and let him know! We are currently having a little debate about what to do next…lol.


Last night, I whipped out the wonderful birthday gift that I got from LeahAni’s Raw Food Desserts!


With being so busy with bakery stuff, I haven’t even had a chance to make anything out of this cookbook yet!

Well, that ended last night. :D

I found a concoction that sounded so delicious (and quick + easy) that I had to try it!

I modified the recipe for a frozen cantaloupe mixture. I like to call it the Cantaloupe Creamsicle


  • 1 cup cantaloupe
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 T fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 t lemon zest (optional)
  • 2 T raw agave (or you can probably use honey/maple syrup?)

Mix everything in a blender for 30 seconds or so…I left a few chunks of cantaloupe in mine.

Then I tasted it. O-M-G it was FABULOUS!!!!!!

I think because I am so used to making very non-sweet green monsters that this honestly tasted like a frothy, creamy, sweet DELIGHT. It was so very good.

My second thought was: ‘Damn, this would be AWESOME mixed with vodka/triple sec or Tequila!!!’ lol…I think you know what my next version will be! ;) We are having friends over soon and I am so going to make these drinks!

Then I resisted the urge to guzzle it down and I poured it into a mini popsicle maker. If you don’t have one of these you must pick one up! They aren’t just for 7 year olds anymore. ;)


Then I left it overnight…and voila…


A healthy ‘Cantaloupe Creamsicle’ :D


Here is another plus- Each pop is only 25-30 calories (makes 5-6 pops) or you can simply pop the whole mixture (~170 cals) in a glass in the freezer for a few hours and have a fun ‘shake’! So perfect for this hot weather that we have been having lately!!

I am so excited to try new combinations with all kinds of fruits. :) You guys just have to try this!!!!


I am about to leave for a glorious Saturday morning run! The sky is blue and it is a lovely 22C outside! Perfect morning for a run, me thinks! :)

Before the run, I had some GLO fuel…;)

Two of my newest Glo Bakery creations…Coco-Glo macaroons!


These are hella good. Addicting sorta good. Eric, who is not a fan of macaroons, loved these. What I loved about them is that they aren’t ‘sickly sweet’ like some macaroons. They are VERY light and healthy tasting.


I also had one of these bad boys!



Notice how there are 2 layers– the froth went to the top (of the popsicle maker-remember it is upside down!) and the heavier ingredients moved to the bottom. I liked it this way. ;)

I used to be obsessed with the packaged Creamsicles when I was young. And now a healthy version…just fabulous!

A perfect light snack before my run. Breakfast will come after!

In Other News…

  • I finally learned how to upload Twitter pics!!! Expect to see lots of Tweets and twics (LOL) from me all weekend long. The fun never stops around here! For those of you following me on Twitter you know how much I use it during the day when I am doing computer work! I remember when I first heard about Twitter I was like…that is so lame! But here I am: Twitting, Tweeting, retweeting (just learned that tonight), and PING BACKING…wait, never mind…that’s blogging.
  • Does anyone else ever dream about blogs or people they read about in blogs?? Last night I had a dream that I met Wiggs from her amazingly witty blog called ‘The Beholder’. And guess what? It just so happens she is running a half marathon today!!! Goodluck Wiggs!
  • I am currently eyeing a Canada Day 5k race for this Wednesday! The course is along beautiful Lake Ontario and it just sounds like the perfect thing to do on Canada Day (aside from the Summer Glow Boot Camp kick-off Party that is!!!!!!)
  • Sarah is getting married today- Congrats!!

I’m going to digest, dress, and head out for my run shortly! Eric is going to come with me (on bike) :) Enjoy your Saturday!

We’ve got a busy day ahead of us…a mixture of both work and play. We are hoping to go on a little adventure today though so hopefully we can squeeze it in!

I have popsicle mods in my cabinet just waiting to be used. I’m think Green Monster-sicles!


Angela (Oh She Glows) June 27, 2009 at 9:03 am

I made Green Monster ones too- just a tip- make sure it is a SWEET GM…I made the mistake of not putting much fruit in mine and the popsicle was not good! lol


Lara June 27, 2009 at 9:08 am

That looks incredible. I agree that vodka would make a nice addition :) I have been wanting that cookbook for ages but have been on a “no cookbook buying” ban after buying so many last winter. Might have to break the ban for that one. Every recipe I have seen from it sounds so good. Where did you get the popsicle molds?


Angela (Oh She Glows) June 27, 2009 at 9:10 am

Lara- I think I got the popsicle molds from dollarstore!


Jess June 27, 2009 at 9:18 am

I’ve totally had dreams involving bloggers before – glad it isn’t just me! I felt like a total weirdo and stalker when I woke up!


april June 27, 2009 at 9:18 am

Glad to know I’m not the only one who dreams about blogs! haha. Last night I was dreaming about all of the comments I got. lol


eliza martin June 27, 2009 at 9:20 am

I have a a few questions..

Do you think baby spinach works in the Green monsters? thats what Ive been using with 1/2 banana, yogurt, skim milk, and ice.. its delicous. oh and honey and CINNAMON! :)

Also, how about frozen spinach? does that work and give you the same benefits?


Jocelyn June 27, 2009 at 9:26 am

I picked up one of those popsicle molds from the dollar store last week..and I have a super idea that involves orange juice and blueberries…cannn’t wait. lol Yours looks yummy!


Recipes for Creativity June 27, 2009 at 9:42 am

Yes I dream about blog people. It’s very weird, but since I feel like I “know” lots of bloggers, I guess it’s kind of to be expected! Have a great run!


Miss HoneyDew June 27, 2009 at 9:54 am

OMG those creamsicles look devine! I am so stealing that recipe!


Shelby June 27, 2009 at 9:57 am

Those popsicles sound AMAZING! I will have to give that recipe a try! YUM!


Steph June 27, 2009 at 10:01 am

woah… that is creepy that you wrote about dreaming about blogs as last night you and kath were in my dream! how weird is that?


Leah @ Simply Fabulous June 27, 2009 at 10:02 am

They look great! Glad the book came in handy. I hear there are a load of good recipes in there.

Loved Eric’s post!


MarathonVal June 27, 2009 at 10:02 am

I’ve made GM popsicles too – also have used plain soy milk and some Amazing Grass products – not bad! :)

Have a great run!


Aileen June 27, 2009 at 10:36 am

I was hoping to try the latest version of the peanut butter granola bars, but for some reason, the recipe page doesn’t seem to be working. So sad! Is it up somewhere on your blog?


Christina June 27, 2009 at 10:38 am

Omg thanks so much for the cantaloupe creamsicle recipe. I can’t wait to try it. It looks so easy but so delicious!!!


Jenn Eats Nutritiously Now June 27, 2009 at 11:13 am

The creamsicle looks delicious. I’ll have to try some one of these HOT days!


Heather @ Health, Happiness, and Hope June 27, 2009 at 11:17 am

Wow, those creamsicles sounds so good! Perfect for the hot summer weather. :)

Enjoy your run and busy day Angela!



Courtney June 27, 2009 at 11:36 am

That book of raw desserts looks so tasty! I was hoping I could scope it out at the Library! :] Yum, popsicles!


Cecilia June 27, 2009 at 11:51 am

Cantaloupe is one of my fav fruit!!! LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!! I’m gonna try this asap (even though it’s winter here), maybe even without agave, as I find it sweet enough :D Thank you!


Cecilia June 27, 2009 at 11:54 am

My dad saw the Canada flag on ya blog – he couldn’t stop gushing about how much he LOVE that country!! (He lived there for 7 years in his teenage life) Just thought you wanna know ;)


maggie June 27, 2009 at 12:23 pm

Hey Angela!

I’ve been looking all morning for your peanut butter granola bar recipe but it says that the June 1 2009 post does not exist! Error maybe? Can you help a craving peanut butter chick out? Thanks!!



Lynn June 27, 2009 at 12:36 pm

YUM!! I need to get some canatalope and make those!!


Priyanka June 27, 2009 at 1:02 pm

Everyone seems to be having so much fun with the popsicles these days, I have to buy these popsicle makers soon!

The cantaloupe popsicle sounds fun!!


EatingRD June 27, 2009 at 1:10 pm

mmmm . . . looks refreshing. I had one of those molds, but the one I got didn’t work so well, I’ll have to get another one. Those would be perfect for the Vegas heat. And your macroons look addicting :) Happy fun day!


Wiggs (The Beholder) June 27, 2009 at 1:45 pm

Aw, thanks for the shout-out! Your blog was the first one I went to when I got back from running just now. :)

I would KILL for those popsicles at this moment!


Katherine June 27, 2009 at 2:04 pm

Those look delicious! I just tried your power muffin recipe last night – so delicious! I of course made modifications based on the ingredients I have in my house :)

Where in Toronto are you from? My whole family lives there :) I’m originally from Whitby.


leslie June 27, 2009 at 2:07 pm

i don’t even like cantaloupe, and those popsicles look super yummy. i’d have to agree about the vodka. hmm, cantaloupe martini?


Lex June 27, 2009 at 2:18 pm

holy FREAKING moly…. i LOVEEEEEEEEEEEEE cantaloupe so I MUST try this!!! (and YES, with the drinky poos mixed in it will still be fab …if not fab-er)


The Running Yogini June 27, 2009 at 3:00 pm

Hmmmm…My Birthday is coming up in a week and I was thinking of asking hubby for a cook book. What are your 3 favorite, couldn’t live without cookbooks? I’m not vegan or a raw foodist, but I try to eat mostly vegan and get a healthy portion of raw food in my diet. I do see Ani’s Raw Food Desserts popping up a lot on the internet.


Nicole of Raspberry Stethoscope June 27, 2009 at 4:29 pm

It is funny you ask if we ever dream about blogs or what-not. A few weeks ago, I dreamt that I was attempting to make your granola bar things and in the dream I was frantically trying to find brown rice syrup, going from store to store and then when I found it, I kept saying, “omg, how am I ever going to find hulled hemp seeds!?!?” and I was screaming at the employees, haha, so strange!!!!!!!


Susan June 27, 2009 at 5:43 pm

Love the creamsicle!!! I’m 100% trying that. I like to have fresh melon after tough workouts, I can only imagine how refreshing it would be as a popsicle :)


Lynn (The Actors Diet) June 28, 2009 at 12:37 am

Mmmmmm….creamsicles! I will have to make that stat!
