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……

Enjoy!!

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

Ingredients:

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

Directions:

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

Note: I find that I don't have to freeze Popsicles before inserting Popsicle stick. The whipped cream is strong enough to hold the stick in place.

 

Nutrition facts based on 9 servings. One popsicle equals to one serving.

  9. I am so bookmarking this recipe. It looks amazing! Thank you for sharing :)

  10. Thanks every one for the kind comments :-)

  11. I keep telling myself “don’t look!”. After all the fudge and goodies this past month I really don’t need chocolate cake, but it looks so good!! Can something be divine and sinful at the same time? Maybe I’ll make it for my son’s 22nd birthday. He loves chocolate, in fact chocolate was one of his first words. He learned to say it before he said “Mama”. He’s going to love this!

  12. I just made this for my husband’s birthday. Let’s just say you definitely need a glass of milk with it. Chocolate extravaganza. Thanks for the recipe. It was a blast to make.

  13. I made this today. I didn’t have enough whole wheat pastry flour so I used one cup WWPF and one cup regular whole wheat flour and it wasn’t dense at all. It was perfect and very cake-like. Thank you so much for the suprisingly healthy cake.

  14. WoW! what a delicious cake indeed.. =0

  15. I made this for Easter and after eating a tasty meal (and eating too much) the cake wasn’t that crash hot – BUT the next day this cake tasted SO much better without all the pork belly in our belly’s – just divine and a keeper, absolutely loved it and will make it many times over! It wasn’t sweet, it wasn’t heavy and it tasted like a chocolate cake should! Thanks for the recipe.

  17. Sharddha, thanks so much for your feedback. I am glad it turn out good for you :-)

  18. 9th BIRTHDAY? You know what you’ve done now? For every forthcoming year, you have to do one better. Seeing some of the dates on the comments, I’m guessing it was originally made a few years back so let’s hope the cakes since then have been as epic- I don’t have any doubts!

  19. That is some birthday cake…it is gorgeous! I think my kids would go into shock if I made something like that! It would be fun to see the looks on their faces. My baked goods generally don’t come out too pretty. LOL Pinning!

  20. Well it is my birthday in 2 weeks–I am bit older than 9 :) Looks like a cake I would enjoy as well :)

  21. Beautiful friend, I love this chocolate cake because it is made with whole wheat flour…I’m definitely going to have to try it! It looks absolutely delicious and very beautiful too!

  22. Looks amazing!! Do you have a recipe with no eggs? Thanks
