Sweet Fat Free Homemade Orange Popsicles

Skinny and Sweet Fat Free Homemade Orange Popsicles

 

This recipe is so easy and fun to make with the kids. My son Josh and I just made these and of course he loved pressing the button on the blender to whirl the mixture up. This is a healthy alternative to the frozen popsicles you get at the market, and they are extra special because they’re homemade. They also have a nice amount of vitamin C and potassium to seal the deal. I hope you have fun making these as much as we did, and even more fun eating them while they drip down your arm! Enjoy.

Sweet Fat Free Homemade Orange Popsicles

Makes 4 large pops

Ingredients:

  • 1 15-ounce can mandarin orange slices in light syrup
  • 1/2 cup orange juice with pulp — try to use fresh squeezed because it makes a difference in the recipe (one large orange should yield enough juice)
  • 3 tbsp honey
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • Popsicle molds — found at any market, or Bed Bath & Beyond, Target, etc. this time of year. They usually cost less than $2. If you don’t have molds you can use paper cups with popsicle sticks

 

Directions:

  1. Add the entire can of mandarin oranges along with the orange juice, honey, and vanilla to a blender (I used a small personal blender and it all fit).
  2. Whirl up until smooth.
  3. Pour into 4 molds. Close molds and stand them in the freezer on a paper plate lined with paper towels.
  4. Freeze until firm; at least 4-6 hours.

 

Enjoy this yummy and cool treat!
