Peachy Orange Yogurt Popsicicles with Add Ins

Yesterday the temp was 100 degrees. Time to make Popsicle, not just any Popsicle. These are  Popsicle made with Greek yogurt, orange juice concentrate, and peach puree. These Popsicles don't have any added high fructose corn syrup, or sugar. artificial colors or flavors, either. Amazing, just pure fruit and yogurt, so healthy. Now the funny thing about these Popsicles is that I made these Popsicle, minus, the pureed fruit, when my kids were little, over 30 years ago.  What goes around, comes around, or has this recipe always been in vogue?  Back then I was "Earth Mother", that I made my own yogurt with a yogurt maker, gave my kids Smucker's Natural peanut butter, on whole wheat bread, Did any of you or your mothers have a yogurt maker?  I must have sold it at a garage sale.

Since I had sold my Tupperware Popsicle molds, when my kids got older, I had to buy new ones. I found these, but the the Popsicle are very hard to remove from the mold.  I even used a Popsicle stick, which wasn't that much easier to remove either . I had to run warm water over the mold to remove the Popsicle. I wouldn't recommend buying these. I wish that I still had my Tupperware molds, which had little holes in the sticks, so the liquid would freeze through the stick, making them easier to remove from the mold.

These Popsicles are very easy to make, and within hours,  you will  have these tasty treats. After the liquid has been in the molds for about one hour,  I added blueberries in some, and chopped mint in the others,. in to the molds, and gently stirred them, and returned to the freezer until frozen hard.  You could add chopped strawberries, or peaches, or maybe even mini chocolate chips.  The possibilities are endless. Enjoy, and stay cool!

I'm on my way to see my Granddaughter in St. Louis this weekend.  I see lots of Popsicle, ice cream, and watermelon in my future. It was 108 in St Louis yesterday!

Peachy Orange Yogurt with Popscicles

I 6 oz can of orange juice concentrate, partially frozen.
2 6 oz containers of plain Greek Yogurt
2 peaches, pitted peeled, and pureed.
3/4 c blueberries, or other fruit of your choice
1/3 c chopped mint

Combine above ingredients, except add ins, in large bowl.  Whisk until well combined.
Pour contents into a large pitcher.  Fill Popscicle molds with filling.  If adding in fruit or mint, freeze for 1 hour, then remove  molds, add fruit or mint.  Return to freezer and freeze until hard, at least a couple of hours.

I linked up this recipe to Brandie's   Patriotic Potluck {4th of July edition of Weekend Potluck)
Stop by and say Hi to Brandie!


  1. The popsicles look deliciously creamy. My mom made yogurt all the time (and still does). Her yogurt maker is a bowl and a towel. :)

    The popsicle molds I got recently had the holes through the sticks and are silicone so they peel right off. I've been really impressed with them. Funny how you take that for granted until you see something that doesn't work.

    I hope you have a safe trip and spoil the little girl rotten! Stay cool.

    1. Christiane,
      I've never made yogurt without a yogurt maker.

      You'll have to tell me where you got your Popsicle molds. i'm on the hunt for different ones.

      My "little girl", who is 19 made home made vanilla ice ceam yesterday, so today we will test it out.

  7. Becky, you've put me in a real mood for popsicles! My mum used to have one of those yogurt machines and there was always ample supply of smooth, creamy yogurty goodness in the fridge. I miss those days.
