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

  2. 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 : )

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

  4. 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? 🙂

    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!

  5. 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 🙂

  6. 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!

  7. 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!

  8. 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!

  9. 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

  10. 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!

  11. as much chocolate and as dark as i can get it! mmm 🙂

    i want to try making pomegranate version of your recipe!

  12. 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.

  13. Definitely peach peach peach! Or mango…..Or…oh dear, this is hard! I’ll go with …mango. For now…. 😀

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

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

  16. 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.

  17. i absolutely loved the mayan chocolate ice cream from haagan daas. i think it was limited edition because i can’t find it anymore 🙁

  18. I used to love Ben and Jerry’s Bovinity Divinity, but I think it’s no longer made. 🙁 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!

  19. 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.

  20. Funny! My kid acts the same way you did as a child when it comes to popsicles. 😉

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

  21. 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!

  22. 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!!!!!!:)

  23. 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 🙂
