Orange and Vanilla Yogurt Popsicles …and GIVEAWAY



When I was a kid I used to love popsicles.

I made my parents buy me loads and loads of them. When they started to worry about my health I used various sophisticated methods to make them do what I wanted … I screamed, kicked or told them I wouldn’t look after them when they were old. All in all, I guess I was every parent’s dream.

Now that I have grown up, the only thing that has changed in my relationship towards popsicles is that I am able to make my own ones.

And let me tell you that since I found my first popsicle mold in Ikea our freezer has been bursting with these fabulous treats.

And now back to the Orange and Vanilla Yogurt Popsicle.

You need only 4 ingredients!

Such a simple treat.

These are the popsicle molds I’ve used.

If you don’t own popsicle molds then you can use paper or plastic cups with popsicle sticks stuck in the middle.

1. Fill about 1/4 of the mold with the orange juice.

Please notice how I am not able to pour the juice properly while, at the same time, taking a picture.

That might be just too challenging for some of us!

The molds are filled.

2. Place the molds into the freezer for about 2 hours (we want the juice to be frozen so that it doesn’t mix with the yogurt).

3. Meanwhile, mix the yogurt, sugar and vanilla extract.

You’ll be surprised by how wonderful a flavor these three ingredients can create!

4. When the juice has frozen, fill the molds with the yogurt mixture and place them back into the freezer.

(If you use cups instead of molds then make sure to put the sticks in about an hour after placing the cups in the freezer so they stay upright.)

In my freezer these popsicles needed about 10 hours to get fully frozen.

And here we are with an addictive, tart-sweet combination of orange and vanilla.

You just have to make it!

It’s so yummy!

(This recipe makes 4 regular popsicles.)

  1. ORANGE! When Orange Juice (or any orange liquid for that matter) freezes up, its flavor rises to another level which is simply pure bliss! It always turns out to have the perfect mix of tanginess and sweetness.

  2. My favorite popsicle is a creamsicle, you seemed to have perfected it! thanks
    I would love to have popsicle molds.

  3. My all time favourite ice cream is raspberry ripple and I adore popsicles made with yoghurt, especially vanilla yoghurt, but I’m not a fan of vanilla ice cream. I’m odd like that lol

    • I love love love 50/50 bars. When I was at Machado Elementary School in 1973, we were able to buy them at lunch….Yummm!

  4. coconut – indulgent and creamy coconut milk with the delightful little bits of shreddy coconut to munch on

    i would love those shot glasses so i can experiment with different flavors.

  5. I posted a link (another!) on your giveaway at, but how can I resist entering myself?? I’m all about ice cream. Chocolate ice cream. Ben and Jerry’s New York Super Fudge Chunk. I’ll eat vanilla in a pinch, though.

  6. I LOVE creamsicles, but I LOVE LOVE LOVE Good Humors Toasted Almond, I’m 50 years old and I remember my ice cream man’s name, Mr. Gill. I don’t know if everyone had Good Humor trucks roaming their neighborhoods when they were young, but the sound of those bells put all the kids in earshot into a frenzy !!

  7. Love those shoot glasses! I recently made lemon/basil popsicles that were very refreshing. I think I want to try these orange ones now too!

  8. I just found your blog via tastespotting and am really enjoying browsing through your archive and reading some of your past posts.
    Would love to win but am based in UK, so not sure if the competition is open to me!
    Still, want to leave a comment on your blog saying hello anyway!

  9. I love creamsicles! Orange/Vanilla like here πŸ™‚ (ps… I also love banana, mango, strawberry, rootbeer, etc!)

  10. Hi, I’m from Brazil and I loved your recipes. I want to try this orange and vanilla yogurt, but I don’t know what is “plain yogurt”. Is it diferent from regular yogurt? I could’t translate and I don’t know a lot about kitchen.
    Please answer me!
    Thank you!

  11. Oh, those look fan-frigging-tastic!

    My favorite ice cream is mint chocolate chip. Lately I have been wanting to have a push up. I bet I haven’t had one in 15 years, minimum.

  12. Believe it or not, my dear old Dad loves when I put gummy bugs in our Popsicles! My favorite recipe is pina colada style with crushed pineapple, lite coconut milk, and of course a threesome of gummy bugs. The little candy treats make it an extra special bit of fun!

  13. mmm…that looks really good! I used to make popsicles out of juice for my daughters. That would have to be one of my favorites.

  14. I can’t remember what the name of this popsicle was, but it came frozen, and it would turn into jelly after that. One of the best things from my childhood!

  15. Hi there! I found you on tastespotting the other day, and have been hooked ever since!

    My favorite flavor is coffee!!

  16. my favorite Popsicle is orange and cream
    Popsicles it always reminds me if my childhood when I would share a stick with my brother on a hot summer afternoon

  17. Favorite ice cream: Ben & Jerry’s “half baked”

    Favorite popsicle: hmmm….probably fudgsicles. But those orange and cream ones look really good too!

  18. Fudgesicles… I can eat three or four at a time.

    I really love just about all things frozen though, if there was a lose-weight-through-popsicles diet I’d totally try it.

  19. I have recently been bitten by the ice-lolly (as us in the UK say lol) bug, and I only realised I didn’t have a mould in my new flat this week! Got a lovely 8 piece set from poundland YES POUNDLANd πŸ™‚ will definately be trying out some more ideas now I’ve found your recipe for a simple yoghurt.

    My favourite ice-lolly flavour is watermelon, which I have just made, soooo refreshing. Ice cream though, I’m all for the caramel/toffee/dulce de leche/fudge/butterscotch HA!

  20. mango . lavender. persimmon.

    i’m from romania, i don’t know if the giveaway is available for me πŸ™ but anyway, i think your blog is absolutely irresistible! thanks!

  21. Ohhh that looks SO yummy!
    My favorite ice cream treats/flavors are orange Creamsicles (why do they only seem to come in multi-flavor packages now? I do NOT want a blue creamsicle!), and caramel pecan swirl.

  22. My all-time favorite popsicle flavor is rootbeer float. It’s rootbeer flavored with a vanilla ice cream center. They are so incredibly delicious!

  23. My favorite popsicles are plain orange ones. However, maple nut or licorice are my all-time favorite ice creams.

  24. I think the orange and vanilla flavor is great!!

    But I made raspberry vanilla and blueberry a very long time ago for my daughter and her friends, and didn’t have near enough when they wanted seconds, thirds and fourths…lol.

    A fantastic re-invented idea for the 21st century!!!

  25. My favorite has always been those red, whit, and blue Rocket pops, because I could never figure out what the flavor was for the white part… Now, I’m pretty sure it was coconut, or pineapple. πŸ™‚

  26. my favorite is toasted almond ice milk – a unique flavor at ici in berkeley, ca. it’s absolutely delicious & the best ice cream i’ve ever had!

  27. As embarrassed as I am, I can’t get enough of those popsicles you can split in two in orange. Omg yum πŸ˜€

  28. Ò€œWhat is you favorite popsicle or ice cream flavor?Ò€

    I love mint chocolate chip ice cream (with sprinkles!) πŸ™‚

  29. I just liked your Facebook page, and luckily, you’ve also hit on my favorite popsicle flavor, except I like to mix the orange and cream instead of layering them. Yum.

    Your photos are so good, too!

  30. Always Chocolate! Vanilla cream and anything with caramel is good, but chocolate takes the cake (or Popsicle) every time!

  31. my favorite ice cream flavor is spicy dark chocolate. i love when the heat kicks in and warms up my nearly frozen mouth!

    love your photos, very fun stuff : )

  32. My favorite is a Filipino type called iced buko. Coconut with young coconut strings and sweetened red beans.

  33. Monica, twisted my arm and told me I needed to make my babies popsicles otherwise I’m a bad Mama. That was last year. Could this be a sign? πŸ™‚

    I personally prefer ice cream. Marble Slab’s sweet cream to be exact! I l-o-v-e it! Wish I had their recipe.

    Happy 4th!

  34. Yum…sounds like a dreamsicle, but I’m sure it’s much healthier for you. My favorite ice pop is definitely banana. Ice cream? The pineapple ice cream my dad used to make and I’ve never been able to re-create. Sigh. I keep trying though. Thanks for sharing πŸ™‚

  35. The lady who babysat me when I was little made the best frozen banana/chocolate popsicles!

    I’ve tried to duplicate the taste but I haven’t been successful yet!

  36. I absolutely love the whole fruit bars and my favorite flavors are strawberry and lemonaide….refreshing and I can convince myself they are good for me too!

  37. I’m a huge fan of Fudgesicles, which technically can still be construed as Popsicles right? I love them for the fact that they’re only 45 calories, sugar and fat free, but still taste delicious!

  38. My favourit popsicle has to be orange flavour, especially if it contains alcohol LOL

    Chocolate would be my favourite ice cream.

    Loving the post on ice shot glasses, fabulous

  39. Cute giveaway! I’m not sure if this is open internationally but just in case – I used to be a huge fan of traffic light popsicles! I could actually handle one right about now come to think of it!

  40. as much chocolate and as dark as i can get it! mmm πŸ™‚

    i want to try making pomegranate version of your recipe!

  41. I was always a fan of banana popsicles, but recently a friend and i decided to make our own using sweet tea and they were fantastic! As for ice cream, I’ve got to go with coconut or white chocolate.

  42. Definitely peach peach peach! Or mango…..Or…oh dear, this is hard! I’ll go with …mango. For now…. πŸ˜€

  43. Just Thursday I bought popsicle molds from Ikea (but mine are blue:) )
    My favorite has to be fudgesicles! made with coconut milk, YUM!

  44. My favourite is vanilla and mixed berries yogurt popsicles! Your orange and vanilla popsicles look great too!

  45. Remember the banana/chocolate bomb pops from the ice cream man? I loved ’em as a kid. A natural, homemade version with fresh, ripe bananas and chocolate yogurt sounds like a delicious idea.

  46. i absolutely loved the mayan chocolate ice cream from haagan daas. i think it was limited edition because i can’t find it anymore πŸ™

  47. I used to love Ben and Jerry’s Bovinity Divinity, but I think it’s no longer made. πŸ™ I recently tried ginger cream flavored. Not my favorite. You know what I want to make with those shot glass molds? Coffee flavored ice with some fluffy girly drink inside!

  48. I love the mexican ice cream popsicle or bars! They’re called helados and everytime I have them it just reminds me of my childhood in the Philippines. My favorite is the coconut flavor because of it’s creamy texture and the coconut shavings inside.

  49. Funny! My kid acts the same way you did as a child when it comes to popsicles. πŸ˜‰

    I love orange creamsicles, but my favorite popsicles are banana. I know…boring, but whatev.

  50. I just found your website and love it!

    My favorite popsicle flavor is dreamsicle. So I can’t wait to try this recipe.

    I also followed you on Twitter and became a fan on Facebook!

  51. My favorite popsicle flavor is orange creamsicle, but my favorite ice cream flavor is fresh peach ice cream. Fresh homemade peach ice cream is so unbelievably good!!!!!!:)

  52. I really wanna try this. My son looked at this post and asked me to make this. They look so amazing.
    My favourite ice-cream is coconut ice-cream topped with crushed roasted peanuts. My favourite popsicle is made with simple diet coke πŸ™‚

  53. I love Ginger ice cream. Or Black Raspberry with chocolate jimmies.

    I had ice cream twice this weekend and plan on getting cucumber sorbet this week. Cucumber Sorbet!

  54. I always want to try new ice cream flavors but when I am asked, I always end up getting either chocolate and Peanut Butter or Black Raspberry Thunder (its like raspberry ripple but with bits of white chocolate) They are both so good!!! ummm it makes me want to have some right now…

    I get them both at Kawartha Dairy in the Kawartha Lakes Region of Ontario, Canada. If anyone is ever in the area. I suggest stopping by to try these or any of the many flavors they offer. They have many different and interesting flavors as well as diabetic ice cream and frozen yogurts.

  55. Choosing a favorite flavor of ice cream is difficult! However, anything with coffee and chocolate will be near the top of my list.

  56. My favorite ice cream flavor is probably strawberry. Chocolate peanut butter or coffee are in 2nd.

  57. My favorite popsicle flavor is one of Dreyer’s Fruit Bars. The Creamy Coconut. Helps me feel like I’ve had a cheap vacation! ha!

    I also became a fan on Facebook and Twitter with comments on this topic.


  58. I am a fan of Maple Walnut Ice Cream!! I don’t know why, but I love it!

    As for popsicle flavors, I like a strawberry/orange juice combo.

    • Hi Lubayna! I have a trick for that – after you’ve removed the popsicle mold from the freezer, rinse it under lukewarm water for a couple of seconds. That way the pop gets easier to remove. πŸ™‚ Petra
