orange creamsicle ice pops cooking with cocktail rings

Orange Creamsicle Popsicles

 

This swirl of orange juice and yogurt reminds me of hot summers in New Jersey spent by the pool. When the ice cream truck came around I wouldn’t choose a crazy chocolate-y ice cream or a red, white and blue sugary firecracker – I always went for the refreshing creamsicle. This recipe emulates my beloved creamsicle - there’s just something about the combination of sweet orange juice and creamy yogurt. I like to alternate the orange juice mixture and yogurt so that you end up with a pretty marbled treat.

 

Ingredients:

1½ cups orange juice

2 tablespoons granulated sugar

1 cup vanilla yogurt, divided

 

Orange gel food coloring, as needed  

10 tray (3-ounce) Popsicle mold

 

Instructions:

In a blender puree the orange juice, the sugar and ½ cup of the yogurt until combined. Add a little bit of the gel food coloring using a toothpick and blend until the mixture is a pale orange color.

Divide the mixture between the 3-ounce Popsicle molds until they are filled ½ of the way up. Alternate adding small scoops of yogurt with the remaining orange juice mixture to create a marbling effect.

Insert the popsicle sticks and freeze until the pops are solid, about 6 hours. Briefly run the molds under the hot water to release the popsicles from the molds.

 

Makes 10 (3-ounce) popsicles.
