Hello and I’m so glad you are here! Up today is something I’ve never done and I have to say it was really great fun. I made popsicles…and they were so easy. These citrus banana cream homemade popsicles would be perfect to make for kids or grand kids. In fact, for the first time ever, I wish I had some grand kids to share them with! They would be a great little kitchen project to do with kids as well. Older children could actually make them on their own. Here’s the recipe and then I’ll give you a few tips.
This recipe could be easily doubled and there would still be plenty of room in the blender. I got seven popsicles from these measurements. That’s plenty for me because I will most likely be eating them all by myself. My husband is a chocolate lover and wasn’t the least bit interested!

Here is the popsicle mold that I used: Norpro Ice Pop Maker
It came with enough popsicle sticks for two batches. When I put the lid on the mold and inserted the popsicle sticks, they slipped down quite a bit. Not much of the stick would be showing out of the popsicle. I just attached large paper clips to the sticks to keep them up.
I used Dannon OIKOS Orange Cream greek yogurt. They also make a key lime flavor which would be good as well…just use lime zest and juice instead of lemon. These are refreshing and tangy. This is the perfect summer snack and it’s not bad for you. The yogurt adds protein and the bananas are chuck full of potassium.
I enjoyed making these popsicles very much. It was something new and easy. It got me away from the computer and my spam problems. I have a little treat waiting for me now in the freezer that will last for several days. All very good things!
Speaking of refreshing recipes…I’ve also been making Mint Lemonade every day. My mint is growing like crazy and it’s so nice to have it right there on my deck. If you missed my container herb garden you can see it HERE. If you haven’t planted mint there is still time. Most places have marked down their plants so it’s a great time to buy!
