Homemade Popsicles are a favorite in our house! They make the perfect sized afternoon snack (even breakfast at times) for my 3 year old. I typically don’t use a recipe, but instead just dump things in the blender and let it whirl away.
A couple weeks ago I talked about one of my new favorite cookbooks, 100 Days of Read Food (you can buy the book on Amazon – affiliate link). The post got long enough I didn’t have a chance to share one of the recipes I tried from it.
My daughter chose what we would make first. She selected these Frozen Yogurt Pops. No Surprise considering she loves the color purple. She helped measure the ingredients, dump them in the blender, and hold the button down. Definitely an easy recipe for the young chef.
This is a snapshot of what a page looks like in the book (there is also a picture that goes with the recipe, such as the one on the top of this post):
Of course we chose the purple option and used all blueberries since that’s what we had and decreased the maple syrup slightly. The half batch filled our 6 little blue Ikea popsicle molds.
The verdict? My daughter voted them a winner! She thoroughly enjoyed them.
- 2 cups plain yogurt
- 1 cup orange juice
- ⅓ cup maple syrup
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 2 cups plain yogurt
- 1 cup frozen mixed berries
- ½ cup maple syrup
- Whisk together all the ingredients in a bowl. Pour into popsicle molds and insert sticks. Freeze completely - 4-5 hours or overnight.
- Place all ingredients in a blender and puree until smooth. Pour into popsicle molds and insert sticks. Freeze completely - 4-5 hours or overnight.
What’s your favorite popsicle combination?
Linking up to these fun parties!
I have been searching for something like this. I am pinning to try with my kids sometime. Looks great!
They are super easy! My daughter loved being able to measure the few ingredients that were involved and I think felt pretty cool eating her work.
Which Popsicle molds do you use? I got some from Zulily, but they’ve been breaking left and right. :/
Oh no! Right now I actually have cheap ones that I picked up at Ikea when I visited my sister 2 years ago. They are still working great. I also purchased some silicone molds on Amazon
Hi Deanna! I’m stopping over from Let’s Get Real today. I love my 100 Days cookbook too. You are so right that this is a great recipe to get the kids into the kitchen. Lots of fun and the results taste great!
It really is such a great cookbook! The popsicle recipe is so easy. I can’t wait until our Whole30 is done and we can start making the recipes again.
