Low Carb Orange Creamsicle Cake

Creamsicles are a summer tradition. I have fond memories of chasing down the ice cream truck in the summers so I could buy an orange creamsicle.


The sweetness and flavor of an orange popsicle mixed with the refreshing coolness of vanilla ice cream is second to none. There is nothing better! Well, at least, there used to not be! This awesome Low Carb Orange Creamsicle cake is as tasty and refreshing as your favorite summer treat, but without the sugar or carbs!

Is Orange Creamsicle Cake “Keto”?

It’s important to remember that “keto” is a metabolic state, not an ingredient. Technically speaking, anything is “keto” as long as you are able to eat it and maintain your state of ketosis.


Now, I don’t recommend eating obviously unhealthy foods, but it is worth pointing out that there is no designated list of “keto” foods.


With that in mind, you should know that this cake will not kick your body out of a state of ketosis. As you will see in the recipe card, there is just a little bit of orange zest in this recipe, and 1 tsp of orange juice.You could even use orange extract if you want to pass on the tiny amount of orange juice in this recipe.


A slice or two of this cake will not affect your state of ketosis at all, and even if you eat the entire thing (which I don’t recommend, but I would certainly understand if you can’t resist) you would probably be okay. So, long story short, this yummy cake is definitely “keto!”

DELICIOUS!!!! This is one of the best cakes I have ever made during 2.5 years of keto and 10 years on and off low-carbing. Flavor and texture (moist without being dense) were both spot on perfection. WOW!!! Wonderful recipe so happy I found your site. Thanks!!!!!

Can I use coconut flour. Not almond. If so how much?


Thursday 7th of May 2020

Yes, but it might affect the moisture content and texture. Typically, it is a 1:4 ratio to exchange. Meaning that for every 1 cup of almond flour, you substitute with 1/4 cup of coconut. Coconut flour is very absorbent. I would try 2/3 cup coconut flour for this recipe. You can add an extra egg to help with the texture and moisture issue. Let us know how it turns out!

I made it exactly as written. It came out amazing. Did it in a silicon leaf pan for 40 min. Perfect. This one is going to the Keto favorites file! Thanks for sharing this recipe!
