Popsicle Timee!

8 Jul

So summertime has got me full of cravings for frozen things. I just found these recipes and they all look delicious. (Especially this first one; Creamsicles used to be my favorite when I was little.)

Blood Orange & Cream Popsicles

1 small blood orange, peeled and segmented
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup water
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
3/4 cup orange juice
1/4 cup 1% milk

Cut orange slices lengthwise into 1/4-inch-thick slices. Boil sugar and water in saucepan, stirring until sugar is dissolved. Reduce heat to simmer, add orange pieces, and cook for 1 minute. Remove from heat and add vanilla. Combine blood orange–sugar syrup (including orange slices), orange juice, and milk in a bowl. Pour mixture into ice-pop molds, insert sticks, and freeze for about 8 hours.

Chocolate Raspberry Frozen Yogurt Pops

Makes about 10 3-oz servings

2 cups fresh or frozen raspberries
2 cups nonfat or low-fat plain yogurt, preferably Greek-style (see Note)
3-5 tablespoons sugar
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips

Puree raspberries, yogurt and sugar to taste in a food processor until smooth. Divide the mixture among freezer-pop molds, stopping about 1 inch from the top. Evenly divide chocolate chips among the molds. Stir the chips into the raspberry mixture, stirring out any air pockets at the same time. Insert the sticks and freeze until completely firm, about 6 hours. Dip the molds briefly in hot water before unmolding.

Some other simple popsicle ideas I found that sounded good were blueberry vanilla pudding pops (you just make vanilla pudding and then mix in blueberries and freeze) or yogurt dipped bananas (take half a banana and insert a wooden skewer type thing, then freeze, after frozen, dip in vanilla greek yogurt and freeze again). Yummm.
