Ombre Berry Yogurt Ice Pops
Vegan ombre pink raspberry yogurt ice pops are perfect for Valentine’s day or any day! Kids love these easy homemade popsicles.
I’ve had so much fun thinking of Valentine’s Day treats this week. And, well, I got on a roll with it. After I posted about healthy Valentine’s Day treats for kids earlier in the week I had another idea. Little pretty pink popsicles. Lucky for us, our school teachers will not be accepting candy, cupcakes, or the like while kids hand out their valentines on Tuesday. One of our teachers has asked for parents to bring in healthy snacks and treats. I’ll be bringing these ombre ice pops. I made a couple of small batches for my family and they were gobbled up after dinner and got rave reviews. If you’re brining popsicles to school, you can often leave them in the teachers’ lounge freezer and let your teacher they are there.
I used nondairy yogurt, so these pops are an excellent allergy friendly option. They are a little sweet, a little tart, creamy, refreshing, and easy to make. They’ve got vitamin-C and antioxidants to keep those winter cold bugs at bay. I’ll definitely be making these more often. All you need for this recipe is three simple ingredients. You won’t find any food dyes here, just beautiful natural color. I added orange juice to half of the layers and I was so glad I did. It added the most deliciously bright flavor.
I know the layering can seem daunting and like too much work, but I think the result is so fun. When I’ve made layered popsicles in the past, I’ve let each layer freeze completely before adding the next. Here though, I was okay with some blending of the colors to achieve that beautiful ombre effect. I usually make these ombre layered pops while I’m doing housework or cleaning up the kitchen at the end of the day. This recipe makes about 6 medium-small paper cup sized pops but you could always double, triple, etc. for a party.
You can make these fruity yogurt pops in any popsicle mold you have. Or, if you’re making them in bulk, you can use Dixie cups and popsicle sticks like I did. My kids (and I!) loved eating these creamy homemade ice pops, but they would be a fun recipe for kids to help make too.
