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. 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!

  2. 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.

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

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

  5. 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.


  6. 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. 🙂 Petra
