Cherry yogurt popsicles

If you had been blog-hopping, you would have discovered many posts on popsicles during this summer season. Everyone has his/ her most favourite method of making popsicles to share. I can’t tell you how much I love looking at those individualistic creations. None of them are 100% identical. I’m truly amazed by how a simple recipe can be tweaked in so many interesting ways. So I told myself that I must join the fun too. Without much ado, I bought 2 sets of Ikea popsicle moulds and got ready for action. But deciding on which one to follow based on the recipes I had bookmarked earlier can be a real headache. They all look so GOOD!! In the end, I decided to pick a bit from here and there to come out with my own version which combined fresh fruit, yogurt and honey.

What’s so special with my so-called “healthy” version? First, I used creamy and tangy Greek-style yogurt. Of course, you can always substitute it with any plain yogurt or vanilla yogurt. Second, I used fresh fruit. (This is another fun way to include fruit into your toddler’s diet).  The cherries I used to make these popsicles were bought from a fruit wholesaler near my hubby’s workplace. They were so sweet and juicy! But this shouldn’t limit your choice of other seasonal fruits. You can choose to use concentrated fruit juice too. Lastly, you will find lemon juice in my recipe. It is because blending yogurt with lemon juice results in an airy mixture that is more delicious when frozen. This marvellous tip is adapted from Martha Stewart’s site

So, what is the result? The popsicles tasted so fruity, creamy and delicious. The perfect summer treat for kids! Needless to say, my son enjoyed it very much. Let the photos speak for themselves.

This recipe is very versatile as you can make the pops in layers, swirl the ingredients to give it an artistic look, or even combine everything together. Get adventurous and be creative in your experiment. No matter how terrible you are as a cook, you should be able to handle these homemade popsicles with ease. Not much effort is involved. Althought it only takes a few minutes to make, it can bring your kids an abundance of joy. Better still if you and your kids make them together. Have fun and enjoy!!!

    Speaking of Martha Stewart, she also markets a popsicle mold set you can buy at Macy’s which are rated very high.
    I just got them at Macy’s for
    $23.00 regular price marked down to $9.99 so bought 2 sets.
    The molds are designed to allow two flavors or layers. They are great.
    The ones you have are good for children.

  19. Lisa says:

    Thanks to your website, I have tried to made a lot of stuff. Somehow your photos just make it so tempting! I have tried to look for this at Ikea in Ikano but cannot find. :(…I have been looking high and low at all the kitchen appliances in JJ, etc…cannot find. Any other ideas where I can find the mould? What is the difference between Greek yoghurt and those normal white yoghurt? Thanks in advance!

    • food-4tots says:

      Irene Ng: Thanks a lot for your kind support and wonderful compliment!! That’s strange. So sorry to hear about that. Did you ask the shop assistant when you were there? Maybe you can give IKEA a call tomorrow to reconfirm this item. Sometimes, they have yet to replenish the stock. As for JJ, I’m not so sure. Have you tried to look for them at any baking shops? Will let you know if I can find one other than IKEA.

      To find out the differences between Greek yogurt and regular yogurt, take a look at this link: Hope this helps! Have a nice weekend! 😉

  28. My boys will love this! Especially after a long hot day in school! Thanks for your sharing.

  29. Dora says:

    Wow! Great to have this one in hot weather. 🙂
