These “Yogsicles,” named for H. P. Lovecraft’s Yog-Sothoth, are super simple to make, but do require special equipment: round ice molds and wooden sticks / dowels that fits into the hole at the top of the ice molds. You can find both of these on Amazon.
I made these for our anniversary since my husband is such a HUGE fan of popsicles!
First step: blend the blueberries and mix with agave (I used honey instead).
Second step: gently mix yogurt in so it creates swirls (don’t mix thoroughly!).
Third step: fill the molds. The bottom half of the molds are filled, the top is placed on the mold, and then the remainder of the mix is put in plastic bags and filtered through the hole in the top of the mold.
Fourth step: insert a wooden stick into the top of each mold and freeze until solid.
The third step was the most challenging for me because at first I cut the hole of my ziploc too big. I ended up transferring the mixture to a second ziploc bag, which resulted in less and less of the mixture being swirly but at least it was much easier to pipe into that little hole! It probably also helped that the heat from my hand made the mixture a bit more runny vs. thick.
These were really, really good! My husband gives them a full 10/10. And it was great that they’re healthy – you could literally have these for breakfast and not feel bad about it at all.
Despite my struggle with getting the mixture through the top of the mold at first, they were really simple to assemble. Just make sure you cut the hole in your plastic bag nice and tiny so the mixture doesn’t get stuck in the mold’s little opening!
Cost: Cheap / Average
The ingredients are cheap – just blueberries, agave syrup (or honey) and vanilla yogurt – but you’ll also need to buy a round ice mold and wooden dowels which increase the cost. If you have the ice mold and dowels already, then this is a very cheap recipe!
