National Creamsicle Day is the best day to celebrate and munch on yummy sweet treats.

Creamsicles are flavored ice-coated ice pops with a popsicle stick in between. Though the initial flavors were vanilla and orange, there are now a wide variety of other flavors available like blueberry, cherry, lime, grape, and blue raspberry.

National Creamsicle Day is one of the favorite food holidays for ice cream lovers. This cool, sweet, frozen treat can be easily prepared by taking a large bowl and mixing vanilla ice cream and your favorite fruit juice. You can experiment by replacing vanilla ice cream with your other favorite flavors. Mix the ingredients and gradually add the milk. Transfer the mixture to small paper cups. Place these cups in the freezer; once these cups are partially frozen, tuck the popsicle sticks into the mixture and leave these cups in the freezer overnight. Just strip off the paper cups around the frozen popsicles, and your favorite creamsicles will be ready.
