It's summer and it's hot.
So let's make popsicles: Greek yogurt popsicles, that is.
This is my mum's recipe and I grew up eating these in hot, prairie summers.
These frozen Greek Yogurt popsicles will take the heat right out of you and cool you down from the inside out😎
But you don't have time to mess around here: let's get right to this recipe before your thighs stick to that seat any more then they already are.
📝Ingredients for this Greek yogurt popsicle recipe
These popsicles are super simple to make - literally, 2 ingredients:
- Greek Yogurt - 2% works well and unsweetened
- Frozen and thawed orange juice concentrate - not actual orange juice
[vc_single_image image="12124" img_size="full"]
- Mix thawed orange juice concentrate and Greek yogurt in a bowl with a whisk.
- Pour into popsicle holders and place in freezer until frozen solid (~4 hours or overnight.)
Heads up: these Greek yogurt popsicles aren't made with actual orange juice. And don't sub in orange juice either (unless you want a very different result.)
You're going to use the orange juice concentrate. So the can of orange juice but without mixing it up with water.
Using the orange juice concentrate with the Greek yogurt in these popsicles gives a nice balance with the sweet orange juice and tangy Greek yogurt.
- Pulp or no pulp for the orange juice concentrate? Totally up to you! I've made them both ways and although they taste the same with each type of oj, the Greek yogurt gets a some texture when you use the orange juice with pulp. So if you want a smooth Greek yogurt popsicle, use no pulp oj; if you like a little texture and mouthfeel in your popsicle, go for the orange juice with pulp
- Take the can of frozen orange juice out of the freezer the night before you want to make these popsicles. Put it in the fridge. It will thaw out overnight and be ready when you need it
- Depending on your freezer, they take a good 3-4 hours to get solid. Make them in the morning to have them after supper to be sure they're nice and frozen or freeze them overnight
- My popsicle holders aren't very big and this recipe makes 6 of my "vintage" popsicles. Double it to make more
You can adjust the proportions of yogurt to oj to your liking.
Sometimes I'll add a little less yogurt to let the tangy orange juice taste really come out in these Greek yogurt popsicles. Try it once as the recipe is written and then experiment!
You can also add fruit to these popsicles - it goes great with Greek yogurt. Bing cherry pieces and cut up strawberries are my favourite fruits to add.
