I feel like homemade popsicles are making a come back. This is a good thing since store bought popsicles can be loaded with sugar. These healthy homemade dreamsicles are the kind of popsicle you could easily allow the kids to have for breakfast.
After all, it’s literally breakfast on a stick. There are only three, yes three ingredients in these appropriately named 3 Ingredient Dreamsicles. It’s probably easier to make these, than it is to go to the store anyway.
3 Ingredient Dreamsicles
I ordered this popsicle mold off of Amazon and I’ll be sure to link you to it. The popsicles come out really easily and it’s very easy to clean. It’s also nice and compact. I absolutely hate clutter, so I need my gadgetry to take up little space.
You really can make your popsicles any flavor you want. If you have leftover yogurt, it’s a great idea to make popsicles out of it before it goes bad. That’s kind of how this recipe was born.
The orange pieces you see in these 3 ingredient dreamsicles are nothing more than mandarin oranges from a can. After pouring the mixture into the molds, I just slide them into the sides so that when they freeze they look extra pretty.
I have to tell you, the mandarin oranges are also really tasty when they freeze up and get slushy. This step is purely optional, but recommended.
You should expect to see more popsicle recipes on the blog because these are super yummy, easy, and refreshing after a hot day outside. If you make these for the kiddos , make yourself my Boozy Strawberry Basil Mint Lemonade Pops!
Summer desserts call for a lighter approach, so any reason NOT to turn on the oven. I do hope you’ll try these 3 ingredient dreamsicles. I think you and your family will find them to be a yummy and fun summer treat.

3 Ingredient Dreamsicles
- 1 cup Vanilla Nonfat Greek Yogurt
- 1 cup Orange Juice organic if possible
- 2 tsp Vanilla extract
In the bowl of a large measuring cup or pitcher mix together the yogurt, orange juice and vanilla extract. I don't like to mix it entirely as I like to see a swirl.
Pour the mix into popsicle molds leave 1/2 inch of head space. You can push mandarin oranges or sectioned fresh orange pieces down into the molds if you'd like some texture and color to your dreamsicles.
Freeze for 4 hours or more. When you're ready to eat run hot water over the outside of the popsicle mold for about 30 seconds. The popsicle should slide out easily.
This recipe is low in refined sugar as no sugar was added to the mixture.
Make it Vegan: Use coconut or almond milk yogurt.
