Real Snacks (Sasquatch, 2012) by Lara Ferroni recreates your favorite childhood treats and brings them together all in one cookbook. Every recipe can be modified to be gluten-free or vegan friendly, so that everyone can take a trip down memory lane. The following excerpt is her recipe for orange vanilla ice pops.

These creamy blended citrus pops may taste like dessert, but I think they make a great breakfast smoothie to go. For a decorative tip, add a tablespoon of orange juice to the mold and freeze before filling. To free your ice pops from their molds, wrap the molds in a warm, wet cloth for about 30 seconds and lightly twist the ice pops to loosen.


• 1 cup freshly squeezed orange juice (about 8 oranges)
• 1 cup plain yogurt
• 1/4 cup honey
• 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


In a blender or food processor, combine the orange juice, yogurt, and honey. Blend until the sugar dissolves, about 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in the vanilla. Pour the mixture into pushup or ice pop molds and freeze for at least 4 hours.

These ice pops are naturally gluten-free.

For vegan Orange Vanilla Ice Pops, replace the yogurt with an equal amount of your favorite plain or vanilla non-dairy yogurt and the honey with an equal amount of agave syrup.
