With the season now changing, the girls always want something cold. I always have a tussle with them to avoid anything cold since Rasha always ends up with throat infection, due to her sinus issue. But then kids being kids, really aren’t bothered of how much they will suffer in case they take something cold, right? It’s the same in my home too!
Most of the time, it’s easier to make simple popsicles at home. Most of the time, they just need Tang popsicles and that’s so easy to make, isn’t it? Hehe… Once while flipping through a magazine, I saw this really simple recipe. It reminded me of the vanilla pods Priya had bought for us, that I am using like gold. I decided to use them up in these really simple popsicles that has just three ingredients and no added sugar, apart from just some honey! You must try making these at home to know how easy and delicious these popsicles are. I have used freshly squeezed orange juice, though you may use canned orange juice. I wouldn’t since I am not a fan of it – the original stuff is so much better! Even though I have used scraped vanilla pods, you may use vanilla extract or even skip it. Off to the recipe…
- 1 cup thick yogurt
- 1 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
- 1 vanilla pod, scraped
- 1 tbsp honey (as per sweetness)
- Whisk all ingredients in a bowl till smooth.
- Pour into 8 popsicle moulds.
- Freeze for 4 hours to harden.
- To release, dip the mould briefly into hot water before pulling it out. Enjoy this healthy treat!
