Tofu Popsicles - Healthy Vegan Style Treats

We try to eat a vegetarian/vegan diet as much as possible around here, and I actually cook a lot with tofu. It is really a very healthy inexpensive food that can be used in so many recipes. So here is a summer recipe my kids love on hot days. I promise these taste way better than they sound!!

Tofu Popsicle Recipe


2/3 cup soft silken tofu
1 1/3 cups fresh orange juice
2 Tbs sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract


 Put all ingredients in a blender and puree until the sugar is dissolved. Then pour the mixture into paper cups or any freezer-pop molds you have handy.

In about an hour, you can place a wooden Popsicle stick into each cup. If the sticks do not stand straight up, take them back out and let the mix freeze another 10-15 minutes and then try again. 

Once the Popsicle sticks are in place, continue freezing the Popsicles until they are completely frozen.

To loosen the mold, run the cup under cool water for a second or two.
