Happy Monday Friends!! GUESS WHAT!! I made MARBLE POPSICLES!!!! I’m freaking out a little!!
YES! Marble popsicles….. can you even deal with this right now…
I did search on Google and Pinterest for homemade marble popsicles but I couldn’t find an actual recipe, just more of a prop/showcase type faux marble popsicle. Not that I was going to copy a recipe, I was just curious to see if it was actually possible to make marble popsicles. I then thought to myself, hey Sam!! You got this!! Can’t be that hard and it wasn’t hard at all! Seriously 2 ingredients are needed, unless you add any additional flavourings. Or you can use flavoured yoghurt!
Whats even better about these marble popsicles? The yoghurt is vegan! I love to use Cocobella’s Natural Coconut Yoghurt, dairy free just got a whole lot easier!
Now onto the black gel food colouring. Honestly, I already had a small bottle in my cake decorating pantry so I just used that, only 2 drops. However, I would strongly recommend you find yourself a natural based black gel food colouring because I want you to enjoy these popsicles and not have to be worrying about any weird nasty additives! I suggest checking out your local health food stores or online. My health food store carries natural food dye but I couldn’t make it there this weekend when I was making these bad boys.
I just love how fun these are, especially that the whole marble look is very on trend, hasn’t it always been on trend?? I currently have a black and white marble look case on my laptop and iPhone, duh!
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! Pop these easy dairy free marble popsicles on your to-do list. Oh my goodness!! Wouldn’t they make just the best party favours??!!
- 2 cups (500g) Cocobella Natural Coconut Yoghurt*
- Optional flavourings: 1 Tbsp vanilla bean extract
- 2 drops black food gel colouring**
- 4-hole popsicle mould
- Wooden popsicle sticks
- Add yoghurt to a large mixing bowl. If adding any flavourings, stir them through now, before the colouring.
- Drop 2 drops of the black gel food colouring on top of the yoghurt.
- Take a wooden skewer or a butter knife and gently swirl colouring into the yoghurt, creating a marble effect, ensuring not to completely mix them together. NOTE: It will look like the colouring has just swirled on top of the yoghurt and not through the entire yoghurt, this is ok because you want more white than black.
- Gently spoon yoghurt and divide yoghurt evenly into a 4-hole popsicle mould.
- Place in freezer and freeze for 4-6 hours or ideally, overnight.
- To remove, sit each popsicle mould in a jug of warm water until the popsicles slowly release from the moulds, alternatively, place each one under running warm water until they release.
