Lime Ice Pops with Greek Yoghurt & Oreos

I made these beauties yesterday; Lime Ice Pops with Greek Yoghurt & Oreos. Yes, it is January and yes it is winter in most parts of the world but I am now tired of pretending that its winter. Here in South India, we have only two seasons; summer and More Summer! So technically it is Summer and I am enjoying my Lime Ice Pops!

My grandsons LOVE frosty treats, and I love to spoil them with homemade popsicles with homemade flavours. Plus, making my own popsicles means I know what goes into them. Popsicles are so delicious and easy to make! Try them!

Lime Pops

If you like citrusy flavours, then you have to try these; refreshing, sweet and ever so slightly tangy. They are perfect for that” Choti wali bhookh” that kids have or the midnight snack that adults crave. I love anything lemony and I still indulge in Popsicles as they are absolutely refreshing and less heavy than most other treats.

I wanted to make healthy popsicles while saving on calories so, I substituted the heavy cream cheese for homemade Greek yoghurt and they turned out perfect. The lime zest is the secret ingredient which packs a punch. The lemony flavour just tickles your taste buds.

What is an ice-pop?

 An ice pop is a water or milk-based quintessentially frozen treat on a stick. The best part is you don’t need fancy ice pop moulds to make these. I used paper teacups but you can use any small containers or freeze in ice cube trays or any empty yoghurt containers.

There are many Popsicles recipes I have already shared like this natural Watermelon Popsicles, Mango, Watermelon and Coconut, Jamun, Plum Popsicles and if you like the Indian kulfi then there is this Mango Kulfi Falooda

My writing was limited to school essays and projects for my kids and out of the blue, my writing career began with writing articles for the magazine section of a reputed national newspaper. I rediscovered my best subject at school and began writing with gusto. I had a weekend column in the newspaper which was well appreciated. I started off writing about Interiors and Gardens and later diverse topics like Fashion, trends, food and events in the city. Juggling my time between various jobs down the years and my writing, I have written content for fliers, brochures for colleges, speeches, social media content and also website content. I love writing and I am open to writing on a plethora of topics. My blog has some interesting insights into my life and travels but now it is mainly a food blog as I am growing organic vegetables and cooking my own produce is very therapeutic. Read my blogs to know me better. I write from my heart and what I write is what I feel... I feel a feel, A funny feel A funny feel, feel I! If you feel the feel I feel You'll feel the same as I!!
