Orange popsicles, juicy and refreshing and so easy to make. A healthy and delicious dessert for hot summer days.
These orange popsicles are just one sort of the many popsicles we are making this summer. Check out the Greek yogurt pops, the lemon, cherry, or lime popsicles. I really could not say, which are the best. Whenever my kids have one in their hand, they say that is the best, only to say the same thing about the next sort they are eating...
And what is not to love? A refreshing summer snack, full of flavor and sooooo easy to make. Really! You will probably not need 10 minutes to make them. They do need their time in the freezer afterward, but that should not be a problem.
And kids just love to make them themselves.
What do you need?
- Only four ingredients – oranges, buttermilk, honey, vanilla extract – and the molds.
- I often make popsicles with Greek yogurt, but I love using buttermilk as well, it adds to the tanginess of this delicious orange sort, you will just love the combination.
- And, of course, you can use Greek yogurt or orange yogurt instead of buttermilk. In case you choose orange yogurt, keep in mind that it is probably sweetened, you might want to adjust the quantity of the sweetener you are using.
- I use honey as a sweetener for popsicles most of the time. Start with about 3-4 tablespoons and add 1 or 2 more as you like it. I do prefer these pops to be on the tangy side, but that is really up to you.
