Creamy Orange Popsicles

 In Breakfast, Dessert, Easy, General, Recipes

Years ago I made homemade yogurt almost every week. My kids would eat it, but then they became tired of it. Does this ever happen to you? My kids will eat foods every day for six months and then suddenly say they won’t eat it. I had lots of yogurt and had to find a way to use it up so it would not go to waste.

Somehow I remembered Orange Julius, the sweet frothy shakes you would get at the mall and I got an idea. I mixed frozen orange juice concentrate with plain yogurt and poured it into popsicle molds. The Creamy Orange Popsicle was born!

With only two ingredients, this creamy treat is a snap to make. You can use any kind of plain yogurt you prefer. I like to use whole milk Greek yogurt because it is a little thicker and has more protein, but regular and nonfat yogurts work great too. If you like things super sweet, you could use vanilla or orange flavored yogurt, but I find them sweet enough without any added sugar, especially because I have been known to let my kids eat them for breakfast.

Creamy Orange Popsicles

2 Cups Plain Yogurt (Greek, Regular, Nonfat, and Whole Milk all work well.)

1 12oz Can Frozen Orange Juice Concentrate

Mix yogurt and orange juice concentrate well with a whisk. (If you haven’t thawed the juice concentrate, you can put both ingredients in a blender and blend well to combine.) Pour into popsicle molds. I bought mine years ago but this one is very similar.

Freeze for 8 hours or overnight. To remove from the mold, run hot water over the outside of the mold and gently pull out the popsicles. I store them in a gallon zip bag in the freezer. You want to freeze them promptly after removing from the mold so they do not melt slightly and stick together in the bag. They keep in the freezer for up to one month.
