Creamy Yogurt Drizzle Popsicles

Creamy Yogurt Drizzle Popsicles

The divine combination that is ice cream drizzled with extra virgin olive oil is hard to contain... until we froze it into a popsicle (and sprinkled on some caramelized pepitas). Sweet, salty, and perfectly creamy—they're an ideal pull-from-the-fridge grand finale to any beach day.

For the popsicles

1 (14.5-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk

1/2 cup whole fat greek yogurt or labneh

1 ½ cups heavy whipping cream

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

A very fat pinch of flaky sea salt

1/2 cup Drizzle

For the caramelized pepitas

½ -¾ cups raw pepitas or pumpkin seeds (shelled)

1 Tbsp maple syrup

A very fat pinch of flaky sea salt

2 Tbsp Sizzle

Special Equipment

Popsicle molds

Popsicle sticks

Wax paper


Active Time: 15 minutes

Full Time: 6 hrs

Serves 12

30 minutes before you begin, place a metal bowl in the fridge along with a whisk. Allow the bowl to chill until you’re ready to start whipping the cream—this will help it whip quickly and form firm peaks.


To make the popsicle base: In a smaller bowl, stir together the sweetened condensed milk, greek yogurt, vanilla, and salt until a cohesive mixture forms.


Pull your bowl from the fridge and whip the cream with the whisk until firm peaks form. (You can also do this with a mixer, just be sure your beaters and bowl are cold!)


Once you have nice peaky peaks in the cream, gently fold the whipped cream into the yogurt mixture to combine. Drizzle in the olive oil and stir gently with a spatula to combine.


Transfer the popsicle base to popsicle molds and allow to freeze until set—roughly 4-6 hours.


To make your caramelized pepitas: Warm a small skillet over medium-high heat. Add Sizzle, then the pepitas, and stir to coat. Next add the maple syrup and stir to combine until some of the moisture from the maple evaporates, and the pepitas start to pop and become fragrant (2-3 minutes). Transfer to a plate to cool.


Assemble and serve your popsicles: Once frozen, prepare a work surface to top your popsicles. Line a large plate with waxed paper and set it aside to retrieve your caramelized pepitas.


One by one, run the molds under warm water to release the popsicles. Sprinkle the pepitas over them and place on the wax paper lined plate. Place the plate back in the freezer to help them adhere, chilling for one minute before serving.
