Creamsicle Popsicles (C3)

Recipe Author: Simmie Sinow

This is so easy and turned out just like the Creamsicle ice cream bars we used to eat as kids.  The possibilities are endless for the flavors!

I found that using Kefir instead of yogurt gave me something that was more liquid and easier to pour.  Once you add the flavorings, you don't even notice it's been made with Kefir instead of yogurt.

To make these:

EACH one has:
5 Tablespoons Kefir
2 Tablespoons Vanilla Whey Protein Powder
1 teaspoon sugar-free Orange Jello powder

Combine everything and pour into popsicle molds.  Mine are fairly tall and hold 8 in the mold.

Each one is 100 calories.

To reduce the calories to 71: use 1 Tbsp vanilla sugar-free jello powder instead of the protein powder.

To reduce the calories to 46: Use one capful of vanilla extract instead of the protein powder.

Another idea for making popsicles is to use CarbMasters (Kroger brand) yogurt.  Once you "cream" it up, it's pretty liquid in nature and with them being pre-flavored, all you'd have to do is pour them into the molds. Total calories for each one of these is 25.

When I made these last night, I made them in sets of 2:
2: Creamsicles made with Kefir/protein powder/jello powder
2: Chocolate made with yogurt/jello pudding powder
2: Banana (my favorite flavor) made with yogurt/jello pudding powder
2: Peach made with crystal light iced tea I'd made during the day



  1. Hi Simmie,

    Can I make these without the jello powder??

  2. You can, but you are obviously not going to get the Creamsicle flavor without the orange jello. Orange juice is not an option to add (IF you are following the guidelines closely--and this is one I recommend following).
