I’m so excited to be taking part in Frozen Treat Week this week with our lovely hosts Nutmeg Nanny and Katie’s Cucina.  There are going to be tons of fun frozen treats. Ice cream, shakes, ice pops, maybe some granitas, I don’t know! Lots of ice pops (aka popsicles) here on Rachel Cooks because I’m obsessed. Have you seen my funfetti pudding pops? Obsessed.

Plus I’m super busy (this lady needs to learn how to say n-o every so often!) and popsicles are quick to make and delicious to eat. My daughter loves them too, of course. Summer on a stick!

These Blood Orange and Chocolate Yogurt Popsicles are made with Chobani yogurt (they aren’t paying me for this!) and mini chocolate chips. That’s it! The recipe makes one (depending on the size of the mold), but you could easily double or triple this for however many you’d like to feed. The best part of these is that you could easily customize them for whatever type of yogurt you like. Coconut chocolate would be amazing. Cherry chocolate? Yes! Strawberry would be like a frozen chocolate covered strawberry. Fun and tasty and not too bad for the waistline!

Blood Orange and Chocolate Yogurt Popsicles

Yield: 1 large popsicle depending on size of mold

Prep Time: 2 minutes

Total Time: 3 hours, 2 minutes

These Blood Orange and Chocolate Yogurt Popsicles are a treat that you can feel good about eating. Plus they taste great and are unbelievably refreshing.

Ingredients:

  • 1 6-ounce container of non-fat blood orange Chobani Greek yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon mini semisweet chocolate chips

Directions:

  1. Mix together yogurt and chocolate chips. Fill popsicle mold and tap down gently to remove any air pockets. Freeze until solid. Remove from mold and enjoy!

Verdict: Refreshing and delicious. The yogurt is slightly tart and the chocolate sweetens everything up.
Husband’s take (we shared):  He liked it. Being the traditionalist that he is, he’d probably choose a plain chocolate popsicle over this one, but he wasn’t complaining.
Changes I would make: None are necessary but it would be fun to use different flavors of yogurt.
Difficulty: Easy!

    I love how easy these are! I just got my first set of popsicle molds and this is an excellent recipe to try!

    Chocolate and orange is one of my all-time favourite flavour combinations. I could eat so many of these it’d probably be indecent!

    • Rachel Gurk — July 22nd, 2013 @ 8:55 pm

      Totally! But it only makes one at a time and it’s yogurt so it’s healthy! ;)

  5. Lauren @ Climbing Grier Mountain — July 22, 2013 at 11:42 am

    This frozen treat week is so brilliant! I really need to get one of those molds and join the party. Plus, love the combo of chocolate and blood orange!

    • Rachel Gurk — July 22nd, 2013 @ 8:56 pm

      You definitely NEED popsicle molds!

      Thanks Zainab!

    I am in AWE of how simple yet utterly delicious this concept is! I’m thinking some pineapple yogurt chocolate chip pops need to happen in my near future!

    • Rachel Gurk — July 22nd, 2013 @ 8:57 pm

      Mmmm—pineapple would be great!

  8. katie — July 22, 2013 at 4:34 pm

    Yum! These sound amazing! I love that you used chobani! I love using Cho in easy popsicle making too!

    Aw, so many gorgeous frozen treats! It’s torture for us in the southern hemisphere who are freezing our butts off in the winter cold! :) Love this recipe though. Orange and chocolate is one of my favourite combinations, and in a frozen treat? Warm weather heaven. Thanks! xx

  13. Samantha — July 23, 2013 at 9:08 am

    I love that this makes just one popsicle because sometimes thats all you need. :D

  14. Ashley — July 23, 2013 at 10:06 am

    I love watching my kids eat popsicles. They will bite into them and grimace (because you know they’re crazy cold), but then plaster on a huge smile and go for the next bite. Will have to whip these up for them (and me!).

  15. Nutmeg Nanny — July 26, 2013 at 1:26 am

    I love that this recipe is so simple and customizable. Plus the fact that it makes one popsicle is awesome! Sometimes recipes just make way too much for our house of two.

  16. Caroline @ chocolate & carrots — July 26, 2013 at 7:32 am

    The blood orange flavor is so delicious! I can imagine made into a frozen treat, it is even better!
