This is like those orange-cream pops you remember, but all grown up. A generous dose of clementine zest gives the mixture a pleasant, bitter edge, while yogurt lends tang.
heavy whipping cream
thin-skinned seedless tangerines (clementines)
container low-fat vanilla yogurt
- Place cream and sugar in a blender and let stand for about 5 minutes, to soften sugar.
- Meanwhile, zest enough of the tangerines to yield 1 tablespoon zest. Add zest to cream mixture in blender. Peel all the tangerines, discard peels, and add the fruit to the blender, along with the yogurt.
- Blend until very smooth. (If you have a good-quality, high-powered blender, 1 minute should be enough. For other blenders, allow 2 minutes.) Divide mixture among 12 3-ounce pop molds. Insert sticks and freeze overnight.
- Prep note If you don't have molds, pour the mixture into 3-ounce paper cups, cover them with heavy-duty foil (or a double layer of foil), then insert wooden sticks and freeze. Tear off the paper and foil, then slurp away.
