Salted Caramel Popsicles

These Salted Caramel Yogurt Popsicles were created out of pure necessity this week… I went to the dentist for gum grafting surgery and I cannot eat solid food for 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 Instant Pot Chicken Noodle Soup and jello, I came up with the idea to make yogurt popsicles. I’d 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 (Rick’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.

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 ribeye 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!

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 0 minutes
Total Time: 10 minutes
Servings: 8 popsicles


  • 2 1/2 cups vanilla yogurt
  • 1/3 cup whole milk
  • 1/2 Cup 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.

  1. That’s a long time without solid food?! I wonder if I might start going into cheat mode like trying to find soft rice and pasta so it’s not so much chewing… 😛 Anyway, love the recipe idea with vanilla and salted caramel as this seems like a tasty but also pretty healthy treat for a hot day!

    • Emma – I am fortunate enough to own a Vitamix and I LOVE it. I’ve been tempted to blend up the pizza that my boyfriend ordered the other day… Just to see… Getting bored of soup!

  2. I been into that and I can’t eat solid food, I can only take soft and liquid .I ate baby food and cream of wheat everyday.. But that Salted Caramel Yogurt Popsicles looks so good, I want one now!!!!!

  3. Um, that sounds decadent and amazing! Can’t believe you can’t chew for 2 months! Ugh. I had my wisdom teeth when I was 18 and remember not being able to eat solid foods for a few days and despite my love of ice cream, that got a little old. Hang in there! Like you said, at least you can still drink wine!

  4. I’ve seen cashew milk today at the store and I was thinking to get it. I wonder how it taste. And I love that we have so many plant based milk versions… cashew, almond, soy etc. These popsicles are delicious, caramel is my favorite. Pinning:)

  5. You had me at salted caramel. These look totally amazing! I can’t imagine not being able to eat solids for that long, but have heard stories from my husband who had his jaw wired shut after surgery and had to eat out of a straw. You’ll make it through!

  6. We love Silk products in our home. It’s pretty much all we use. I’m sorry to hear about your dental surgery, but on the bright side, you get to eat soft things for a month. Soft things usually mean sweets and treats. 🙂

    • Of course Chrissie! I hope that he enjoys this!!! The salted caramel does have butter and cream in it, so there’s a little bit of dairy with that. You could always substitute roasted fruit for the caramel as well!

  7. Oh no Erin, no solid food?! That would be so hard! What about lentils? Or hummus? You can do a lot with those…those are staples here, so that’s what I’m coming up with. Hello Pinterest! I definitely feel for you!
    Your popsicles do sound wonderful though! I still haven’t tried making any this summer, but these could be the ones that get me there…I love salted caramel!

  8. These sound wonderful, must make them today!! Is the vanilla Silk yogurt sweetened or unsweetened? I buy the large tubs of Silk vanilla flavored yogurt but they’re unsweetened. Thanks!
