These Salted Caramel Yogurt Popsicles are a creamy treat for warm summer days!
These Salted Caramel Yogurt Popsicles were created out of pure necessity this week. Lucky me – I went to the dentist for gum grafting surgery and I cannot eat solid food for one month! Yep ONE MONTH – And no chewing with the left side of my mouth for two months. This blog may just be renamed Spoons & Smoothies. Although I can still drink wine, so we’re good there! Priorities…
In my hunt for things to eat besides soup and jello, I came up with the idea to make yogurt popsicles. I’ve seen a lot of recipes like this popping up on the internet but had yet to give them a try. Plus, I had some of my delicious salted caramel sauce (the boyfriend’s favorite) sitting in the fridge. So, I ordered this popsicle mold, waited for my 2-day shipping, and Salted Caramel Yogurt Popsicles were born. Num Num…
Although I love yogurt, dairy doesn’t always love me. So, when I saw that Walmart had Silk Dairy-Free Yogurt, I opted for that over the traditional greek yogurt variety. Plus, Silk Dairy-Free Yogurt provides 6 grams of soy protein per serving, calcium and vitamin D. I also picked up some Silk Vanilla Cashew Milk to make the popsicles extra creamy and to provide a bit of extra vanilla flavor.
I may just be eating these every day for the next few weeks. And, it can be pretty much guaranteed that in 3 weeks and 1 day, I will be eating a steak and gnawing on some good bread (with the right side of my mouth, of course).
Have any of you ever been on a soft food diet? Any tips for some good things to eat? I’d love to hear suggestions!
Salted Caramel Yogurt Popsicles
- 2 1/2 Cups Silk Vanilla Yogurt
- 1/3 Cup Silk Vanilla Cashew Milk
- 1/2 Cup 15-Minute Salted Caramel Sauce
Heat half of the salted caramel in the microwave for 20 seconds, until runny.
Place the yogurt and milk in a small bowl and combine with the heated caramel sauce. Stir to combine thoroughly.
Slightly heat the remaining caramel, just slightly, so that is pourable, but not runny. (About 5-10 seconds). Glob this caramel into the yogurt mixture and, using a knife, make large swirls so that there are large ribbons of caramel running through the mixture.
Fill the popsicle molds with this mixture and freeze until firm.
To release the popsicles from the mold, run them under lukewarm water for about 30 seconds.
