Recipe: Homemade Creamsicles

MF Creamsicles

I’ve been experimenting with popsicles this summer to beat the heat and I’m having a great time. All you need to share in the fun is a simple popsicle mold, a few simple ingredients, and a lot of imagination. Experiment with flavors and ingredients (I like to add fresh fruit or crushed cookies for texture) and see what suits you best. As for me, I’ve decided that I love creamsicles the most, but I can’t decide between Pina Colada and Lemon Blueberry. I’m sharing the recipe for both, so maybe you choose for me? I appreciate it.

Pina Colada Creamsicles

2 1/2 cups heavy cream
1 1/4 cups sugar
1/2 cup plain yogurt
1/2 teaspoon coconut flavoring
4 tablespoons pineapple tidbits

Directions
In a saucepan over low heat, stir cream and sugar until sugar is completely dissolved. Remove from heat and stir in yogurt and flavoring and combine until smooth. Gently fold in fruit, careful not to over mix. Pour into popsicle molds and freeze until solid, about 8 – 10 hours, depending on the thickness of the molds.

Lemon Blueberry Creamsicles

2 1/2 cups heavy cream
1 1/4 cups sugar
1/2 cup plain yogurt
1/2 teaspoon lemon flavoring
1/3 cup blueberries

Directions
In a saucepan over low heat, stir cream and sugar until sugar is completely dissolved. Remove from heat and stir in yogurt and flavoring and combine until smooth. Gently fold in fruit, careful not to over mix. Pour into popsicle molds and freeze until solid, about 8 – 10 hours, depending on the thickness of the molds.

HINT: Pour any excess mixture into a plastic cup and insert a lollipop stick or plastic spoon for an extra creamsicle!
