Although a favorite treat of my childhood, I went many years (as in over 20), without having eaten a single creamsicle. I never missed them, until this last pregnancy. At some point the mighty creamsicle became my token “weird pregnancy craving”. I just had to have them. I don’t even want to know how many boxes of creamsicles I consumed during that last trimester.
My bizarre cravings generally go away after the pregnancy ends, but this time I was hooked. Unfortunately for me, sweet baby girl becomes colicky and breaks out in a rash anytime I have any dairy products at all (with the exception of raw goat’s milk), so creamsicles were now out of the question. :(
And then I had a new discovery. I can’t take credit for this one; a lady at Costco told Rob about it so I thought I would give it a shot — an orange soda flavored ZipFizz mixed with milk (or in my case, goat’s milk) — a Cream Fizzsicle!
A little background: I gave up my caffeine addiction almost a year and half ago, kicking the multiple-cups-of-coffee-a-day habit. I’m FREE! But on those days when I need a little boost, I rely on ZipFizz.
If you are unfamiliar with the product, it’s a zippy bubbly little energy drink powder that you mix into a bottle of water. It’s “boost” comes from natural caffeine from guarana seed extract and B Vitamins. It’s a great immune system booster with its 833% RDA of vitamin C, and is a beneficial supplement for vegetarians with its 2500 mcg of B12 (among its 17 vitamins and minerals). No sugar, 2 carbs, and only 10 calories. Great product!
To make a “Cream Fizzsicle”, drink about 1/4 to 1/3 of the water from a 16oz bottle of water. Add the ZipFizz, shake, then fill the rest of the way with milk and shake again.
My thanks to the unknown Costco worker in Clearwater, Florida who came up with this concoction.
