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.
First of all, I’d like to say one big THANKS to all of you who have taken part in the giveaway contest.
I’ve had such a great time reading about your favorite desserts. Actually, your gorgeous ideas have inspired me to such an extent that I will just have to prepare some of them soon. Otherwise, I might disintegrate mentally…
Though I’d love to send the prize to all of you, there’s only one Cherry Pitter over here… and that one goes to:
Kristina: “French silk pie. It reminds me of summer and Thanksgiving. Nice lattice work!”
You’ll be contacted via e-mail soon.
Have a wonderful day everybody and STAY TUNED – there’s a new giveaway waiting for you just around the corner.
