Orange Vanilla Ice Pops
Editor's Note: You'll love having these delightful Orange Vanilla Ice Pops on hand this summer! These ice pops are light and refreshing, and are also easy to make. Kids of all ages will love snacking on these frozen treats.
These creamy blended citrus pops may taste like dessert, but I think they make a great breakfast smoothie to go. For a decorative tip, add a tablespoon of orange juice to the mold and freeze before filling. To free your ice pops from their molds, wrap the molds in a warm, wet cloth for about 30 seconds and lightly twist the ice pops to loosen. For Vegan-Orange Vanilla Ice Pops, replace the yogurt with an equal amount of your favorite plain or vanilla non-dairy yogurt and the honey with an equal amount of agave syrup.
