Naturally sweetened, paleo orange creamsicle slushie. It’s the perfect healthy summer treat with loads of sweet, citrus flavor. And just three simple ingredients make this cool dessert too easy not to make over and over again.
My 3 1/2 year old thinks we need to get frozen yogurt every single day after preschool.
It’s my fault, really. One Friday afternoon I thought, “Oh! I’ll be cool mom and make it an end-of-week tradition to get fro yo before we sit in brutal weekend traffic!” The problem is, little kids don’t know Monday from Friday, so every day after school we have a long conversation (some tears included) about why we aren’t getting ‘ice cream’ that day.
Trying to be rational as a three year old is like negotiating with terrorists. It’s just not gonna happen.
“I’m sorry buddy, it’s not Friday. We can get ice cream on Friday”
“Waaaaaah! Sniff sniff. FINE! Can we go to Legoland then?”….SIGH.
Maybe I need to stop being so fun. Just be the mom that’s like, “here’s a ball, go play outside”. Nah, I’d be like, “here’s a ball, go play outside. Oh, and I made you this paleo orange creamsicle slushie too. You’re welcome you cute little gremlins.”

Maybe I’m not ashamed to say our summer is going to be a low-key one. I know that summer treats like this paleo orange creamsicle slushie in the driveway with a bucket of sidewalk chalk and running through the sprinklers will make just as many quality memories as a fancy vacation or endless activities. Plus when I can bust this kid-friendly recipe out in two minutes flat, with just three ingredients, I call that a winning mom moment and winning summer refresher. Low key, simple, healthy – totally my jam.
And who said I can’t add a splash of vodka if the kiddos are getting a little crazy? Just stating options…
