Raspberry and cream popsicles
Raspberry and cream popsicles are the bomb. These are a must try. Simple and refreshing.
I have never made these raspberry and cream popsicles before, and I really don’t know why. I have seen many variations of these so I figured I try my own, after all, summer weather is here so these are just perfect of the season.
These were a huge hit. The consistency was superb due to the fact that the batter contained whipped cream and made the pops very creamy.
I think next time I am going to make a coconut version of some sort as well as making an adult version with some sort of liquor :-)
For this version you can add 1/4 to 1/2 cup of raspberry liquor, which I intended to do but forgot. I wanted to make half with the liquor and half without, oh well, next time. Until then……
On the left picture you can appreciate the ingredients being folded together in the bowl. On the right picture you can see the making of the three layers in the Popsicle. I used my fingers to smooth the raspberry layer.
Last steps. Filling the cups with the remaining whipped mixture and then sticking the Popsicle stick in the middle of the cup.
Raspberries and cream popsicles
Miryam's original recipe
Yield: 9 3oz popsicles
1 cup heavy cream or coconut cream
1 cup low fat Greek yogurt (I used organic)
1/3 cup maple syrup
1 cup frozen organic raspberries (If using fresh omit orange juice)
2-3 tablespoons orange juice
In a blender puree raspberries and orange juice.
In a bowl whip heavy cream and maple syrup until soft peaks form. Fold in yogurt and half of the raspberry puree.
Snip the top edge of the Dixie cups with scissors for easy peeling. Fill Dixie cups1/4 of the way with the whipped mixture. Add about a teaspoon of the raspberry puree and spread evenly using your finger over the top of the whipped mixture.
Fill the cup with remaining whipped puree. Place a pop stick in the middle of each Popsicle and freeze 4-5 hours before serving

These sound super yummy! And easy!
One thought on the liquor…keep in mind that adding any alcohol will make them not freeze as hard. I know when I make homemade ice cream in my Cuisinart ice cream maker a few tablespoons of alcohol makes a big difference in how hard the ice cream freezes (in fact it’s why I add it to ice creams where I use less fatty ingredients and sorbets…to keep the ice cream softer).
Definitely going to try this though! So simple and maybe the individual servings will keep me from overindulging! LOL :)
These are ultimately delicious! And so super cute!
thanks for the suggestion, will take that into consideration when I make them next time :-)

These look so beautiful! And yes, please make a coconut version and post it, if you will! I love coconut!
These really do look sooooo good. I love a good popsicle in these hot Summer months!
Just wondering if It will be possible to make this without Greek Yogurt ? I can’t have dairy maybe coconut cream only ?any suggestion?
You can use dairy free yogurt if you like. I have seen soy versions and even coconut as well. I hope this helps. Thanks for stopping by.
The ingredient list shows maple syrup, but the instructions say to whip the cream and sugar? I don’t use/buy maple syrup, so if that’s really what I should use, do you think sugar or honey could be substituted?
For sure either one is good :-) Thanks for stopping by.
Thank you! My daughter picked these for her very last class Valentine Party! <3
