Believe it or not, you read that right. MOSTLY healthy cake batter frozen yogurt popsicles!!
Nope, sorry, that’s all wrong. Let me do that again. *ahem*
Copious amounts of sprinkles… Flashy graphics… Yeah, that’s more like it. I mean, at this point I imagine you’re either hungry or having a seizure. Either way, sorry?
Hopefully you’re just hungry and itching to get your hot little hands on the aforementioned mostly healthy cake batter popsicles because THAT I can help you with. And holy moly are your taste buds AND waistline going to be happy with you (<— Savor that latter part because that is NOT something we can say everyday around these parts). Seriously, we’re talking 85 calories a pop here folks.
For those of you that know me, you may be wondering “Why healthy? Copious amounts of calories and sugar never stopped Claire before.” To which I would say touché, and also remind you that this is a judgement free zone. <—DESIGNATED JUDGEMENT FREE ZONE See, I made it all official there *uses hands to draw imaginary bubble around self*
But after a particularly busy and somewhat stressful week at work, and an undisclosed number of empty cookie boxes that may or may not have been eaten during a time typically reserved for things called “breakfast” littering my cubicle space, I had to admit that I may have been over indulging myself. Seriously guys, I literally caught myself thinking “Why don’t I have any cake right now?” at 9am this morning. Remember, JUDGEMENT FREE ZONE *points at sign that has suddenly appeared on the wall*
Also, the afternoon sugar coma crash was starting to feel counter productive. There just HAD to be a way to be healthy AND get my early morning cake fix (because, priorities people). Enter the mostly health cake batter popsicle. If you didn’t imagine that with angelic light and a chorus of angels in the background, you’re doing it wrong.
Let’s try that again: MOSTLY HEALTHY CAKE BATTER POPSICLES! *Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaw*
- 1 cup low fat vanilla yogurt
- ½ cup heavy whipping cream
- 2 tsp butter emulsion (extract)
- ⅓ cup pink candy melts
- In a small bowl, whip the whipping cream until stiff peaks form. Add the low fat vanilla yogurt and butter emulsion, stirring until thoroughly mix. Shake a few sprinkles into each of the molds and cover with the yogurt mixture (adding the sprinkles to the whole mixture may cause the colors from the sprinkles to run, depending on the kind of sprinkles you're using).
- Put the molds into the freeze and allow to set overnight, or for at least 5-6 hours.
- Remove the popsicles from the molds, drizzle with a teaspoon or two of melted pink candy melts, and garnish with more sprinkles.
