“Real Snacks” by Lara Ferroni brings your favorite childhood snacks back without the junk.
5 to 7 pops SERVINGS


  • 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.

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.
