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.)

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

    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 🙂

    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!

    Debs says:

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

    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.
