These Salted Caramel Yogurt Popsicles are a creamy treat for warm summer days, plus they're dairy-free! | platingsandpairings.comThese 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!

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Heat half of the salted caramel in the microwave for 20 seconds, until runny.
  2. Place the yogurt and milk in a small bowl and combine with the heated caramel sauce. Stir to combine thoroughly.
  3. 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.
  4. Fill the popsicle molds with this mixture and freeze until firm.
  5. To release the popsicles from the mold, run them under lukewarm water for about 30 seconds.

    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!

      Pech – You’re on the right track! I actually made orzo pasta the other night and topped it with my Sunday Gravy and parmesan. Really helped to hit the spot for something more substantial!

      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!

    These Popsicles remind me of a well know ice cream creator right here in Columbus Ohio. The salty and the sweet is a wonder combination and I just can’t get enough. So yummy Erin.

    Wow – I love salted caramel and these look absolutely delicious!! I wish I had some advice beyond the obvious soups and juices to offer on the soft food diet.

    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!

    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:)

      Definitely give Cashew Milk a try Ilona – It’s very rich, and creamy. I love the vanilla flavor!

      I agree Sarah – Salted caramel is definitely a weakness of mine! Try it on Pumpkin Pie for Thanksgiving!

    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!

    1. Erin

      At least I didn’t have to be wired shut – That would be absolute torture! I was still able to enjoy treats like these 🙂

    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. 🙂

      Thanks Bryon! I agree with you – It’s not all bad. As long as I can still enjoy sweet treats and wine!

    My husband would love these!! He’s dairy-free and always feels like he’s missing out on summer ice cream treats. Thanks for creating this recipe!!

    Reply

    1. Erin

      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!

    Sorry about your dental work, but then in a way I’m not because it forced you to invent these and they look so delicious!! Hope you are back to eating solids soon 🙂

      Thanks Emily – I’m back to solids – YAY. But these will still be making a regular appearance in our house 😉

    Hi, I was wondering whether you could use normal milk instead of cashew milk?

    Reply

    1. Erin

      Hi Isabelle – Definitely feel free to substitute any milk that you would prefer.

      Reply

  22. Michelle

    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!

      Great ideas for the non-solid food diet Michelle!!! Perhaps I could have just lived on salted caramel alone – I love it too!
