Faux Creamsicles

I'm at a baseball game today, but if you don't live in the Northeast, and you are living somewhere where the temperature might actually be scorching, try a popsicle. These tasty and delicious popsicles are way more healthy than those delicious orange and ice cream popsicles. The recipe is super easy, super delicious, super cheap, and pretty much made from stuff I had on hand. If you don't have popsicle molds, you could try just freezing the popsicles in dixie cups for about an hour or two and then sticking a popsicle stick in until it freezes solid.

yum yum yum!

Vanilla-Orange Freezer Pops

1 1/2 cups orange juice
1 1/2 cups nonfat vanilla yogurt
2 Tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Mix the ingredients together in a bowl. Pour among 6 popsicle molds and freeze until solid.

Yum! What a good idea, sort of like a light version of a Dreamscice. It's been really pretty cold here this summer, but the next warm day that comes around, I'll totally be making popsicles.

By the way- I got a special package in the mail from Ohio last week. Any guesses what it might have been???? I shrieked with joy over the fabric- such great colors and I love the print. My husband laughed at me when I tried it on for him (he thinks I have too many aprons as it is- what does he know, though). Anyway, thanks a bunch. I feel very fortunate to win it. You're a great seamstress.

What's better than a Dreamsicle? NOTHING! Love this idea - and it's so frugal :)
