Any day is a special day when this festive and creamy orange drink is served. Great as an appetizer/starter or consider serving Italian Orange Cream alone as a refreshing treat.

    Very yummy, though one added ingredient makes it e

    Aislinn Weaver from Massachusetts

    This was so yummy, I didn't get that orange creamsicle taste, but it was still good non the less. I added 1/2 a cup of Coconut Rum (plus some extra ice) and this makes the perfect morning drink, much better than a mimosa! Recommending to all my friends! :)

    Kristine Stewart from Chicago

    I had to try this because of the high rating and the other reviews and it was great! It tasted like a creamsicle, or like an orange/vanilla ice cream! It was great!

    Italian Orange-Yummy!

    Taylor Gibbons from MA

    This drink is great, it tastes like a creamsicle or even an orange Julius but with a better vanilla taste. It''''s great for hot days by the pool and I will definitely make it again really soon!

    Wow! Love this recipe...

    Rhonda Tilson from Tulsa, Oklahoma

    This was an awesome drink. I like citrus drinks in the summer and this was a winner. The Italian creme really blended well with the orange juice. It gave it a softer flavor but not too tangy. It will be one of my favorites.

    Italian Orange Cream

    Jenna Wood from Fillmore, CA

    This was much lighter and frothy than I expected! I like how it wasn't too sweet, an excellent treat served iced cold!

    Italian Orange Creamsicle

    Jennifer from Tallahassee, FL

    This was very good - it tasted better than a creamsicle (since I don't like them!). It's perfect for a summer morning.

    Watch Those Carbs

    Gail from Lexington, SC

    Be aware that this recipe contains 390 calories, and has 65 grams of carbohydrates. Have a regular creamsicle and stick to using a tbsp of Coffee-Mate in your coffee. RECIPE EDITOR NOTE: This recipe serves 2 and contains 200 calories and 33g carbohydrates per serving.

    Italian orange cream

    Kristi from Fort Worth TEXAS

    I was a little disappointed in the recipe.. it was definitely refreshing but not as "orange dreamsicle" tasting as I would have liked... I modified it to use orange sherbet.. it turned out creamier. NOT bad!!

    Summer Cooler

    bylen from Alabama

    I've made this with the vanilla Nut or Vanilla creamer. It tastes just like a Dreamcicle. Great for hot days.
