Cookies and Cream Popsicles
I’m so excited to share these delicious Cookies and Cream Popsicles with you! The popsicles are full of crushed Oreo’s! If you’re a cookies and cream lover, you need these in your life.
This recipe comes from the book For the Love of Popsicles written by Sarah from Live Eat Learn. The book is amazing! For one, the photography is beautiful and second, it’s packed with unique and classic popsicle recipes. If you purchase the book you’ll be set for summer!
I’m a bit obsessed with Oreo desserts, specifically frozen Oreo desserts! I have an Oreo ice cream cake that will make you wish it were summer all year long, and then an easy no churn Oreo ice cream recipe that’s rich, creamy, and packed with Oreo’s.
I really like Oreo’s.
Ingredients for Cookies and Cream Popsicles
- Vanilla yogurt
- Cream cheese – make sure it’s softened; in fact, I recommend you whip the cream cheese with beaters so that it’s not lumpy when you mix it with the other ingredients.
- Milk – you can substitute with a dairy-free option here if you’d like.
- Sugar – or honey will work great too.
- Vanilla extract
- Crushed Oreos – with a few whole Oreo’s to place in the well of each popsicles mold.
How to make Cookies and Cream Popsicles
First, add all of the ingredients except the crushed Oreos to a large bowl. Whisk until smooth.
Pro tip: Like I mentioned above, I suggest you beat the cream cheese with hand beaters until smooth. Doing this will ensure there’s no lumps of cream cheese in the popsicles.
Add the crushed Oreo’s to the bowl and mix until combined.
Once combined, pour into popsicle molds, leaving space at the top for the popsicles to expand.
If you want to add a whole Oreo cookie to the popsicle mold, fill the popsicle mold halfway, set an Oreo cookie inside, then continue filling until the well is almost full.
Tap firmly on the counter to remove any air bubbles, then insert sticks into the mold and freeze until firm. It will take about 4 hours for the popsicles to fully freeze.
When ready to eat, remove from the freezer and run the mold under warm water for a few seconds to loosen the popsicles up, then gently pull to remove them from the mold.
It’s that easy! These popsicles are so good!
