I found this cute popsicle mold at the grocery store the other day for only $3 and had to pick it up. I love frozen treats in the summer and I’m sad to say that I have never really made my own. I knew that I could play around with ingredients to make fancy popsicles, but I figured I would start out with a mixture I was pretty sure would work out: creamsicles.
The instructions on the popsicle molds suggested trying a smoothie mixture in the popsicles, which I thought sounded great. So I simply mixed together fruit juice and plain yogurt, with a little maple syrup for sweetness and added some diced fruit. The results were great! I can’t wait to play around with other combinations. I’m thinking peach + mint would be pretty awesome!
Strawberry-Orange Creamsicle Popsicles
Makes 4 popsicles. My popsicle molds each hold a little less than 1/2 cup.
- 1/2 cup plain yogurt
- 1/2 cup orange juice
- 1 tbsp maple syrup
- 4 strawberries, diced
Whisk together the yogurt, orange juice, and maple syrup in a bowl. Place 1 diced strawberry in each of 4 popsicle molds. Pour 1/4 of the yogurt mixture into each mold. Insert the sticks and caps, and freeze until completely firm, at least several hours.
