Filled with the flavors of fall, these apple cinnamon popsicles are the perfect summer treat both icy and creamy.
Tis’ popsicle season if there is such a thing! After 20-30 minutes outside in any temperature that involves shorts, t-shirts, and sandals, my crew is asking for a popsicle. When the warm weather finally hit Michigan last week [knocking on wood we are out of the winter climate] and my kids asked for their oh-so-favorite icy treat, I realized our freezer was EMPTY. So I pulled together a few ingredients and got everyone in the kitchen to make these apple cinnamon popsicles.
While I was the only one who seemed to understand they’d need a few hours to freeze, everyone had a blast cooling off inside, stirring the apple cinnamon popsicles filling, and taking a spoonful or two of the batter.
If you’re new to making homemade popsicles, all you really need is a little liquid, fresh or frozen fruit, a blender if you don’t like them chunky, and my favorite popsicle molds. While our go-to popsicles include watermelon, oranges, and strawberries, I figured the classic combo of apples and cinnamon would make a delicious popsicle flavor pair. Plus it’s the only fruit I had on hand so we just had to deal. Deal and dine we did!
- 1 cup whole milk vanilla Greek yogurt
- ½ cup milk [cow, almond, or soy works]
- ½ cup applesauce
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 6-8 popsicle molds [these hold ½ cup each]
- Add ingredients to large mixing bowl. Stir to combine.
- Fill popsicle molds [4-6 large] and place in freezer for at least 4 hours.
- Remove from freezer and enjoy.
Calling all popsicle fans: what flavor combos have you tried and liked?!
