I’m not sure what it is, but I simply can’t get enough citrus this summer. So light, so refreshing, so lip puckering. And what better way to enjoy some sweet-tart goodness than in some dairy-free and vegan frozen yogurt pops.
One of my nieces and I created this recipe together for So Delicious Dairy Free, but she has since made them on her own with ease. Her one word of advice is to find the juiciest limes possible. I put her on juicing duty often (a productive use of teenage time, don’t you think?), and on our first batch, just two juicy limes churned out the full batch of frozen yogurt pops, but with more anemic limes, she juiced for 20 minutes and powered through about 5 limes.
Far better than lime-sicles, homemade dairy-free frozen yogurt pops offer some healthy probiotics via the coconut milk yogurt (or “cultured coconut milk” if you want to be specific).
When I lived in the northwest, the above was considered “sunny” but here in the southwest, we call this partly cloudy and keep a watch for thunderstorms. How I love the sunny warm weather here; it calls for cool frozen yogurt pops during a good six months of the year.
Special Diet Notes: Limeade Lassi Frozen Yogurt Pops
By ingredients, this recipe is dairy-free / non-dairy, egg-free, gluten-free, grain-free, nut-free, peanut-free, soy-free, vegan / plant-based, vegetarian, and top food allergy-friendly.
- 1 cup So Delicious Dairy Free Plain Coconut Milk Yogurt
- 1 teaspoon lime zest (from 1 to 2 limes)
- ½ cup fresh squeezed lime juice (from 2 to 4 limes)
- 3 tablespoons organic sugar or agave nectar
- Whisk all ingredients together in a medium-sized bowl until thoroughly combined.
- Pour into popsicle molds, filling them as needed. This made 4+ pops in our mold, which we filled all the way to the top. (leftovers can be frozen in ice cube trays)
- Freeze for 2 to 4 hours, or until completely frozen. If you have a cheapy mold like I do, and the pops stubbornly refuse to come out, run hot water around the outside until they loosen just enough.
