Balsamic Fig Yogurt Popsicles

To say that it has been hot here lately would be a huge understatement. I have been singing the praises and expressing thanks in any way I could think of for the invention of air conditioning. To help beat the heat, I needed to make an amazing frozen delight. So I came up with these gorgeous balsamic fig yogurt popsicles, whichย were packed with my beloved Mediterranean flavors!

First, I roasted the figs to form the base of the balsamic fig yogurt popsicles. That little step made them so incredibly tender and flavorful! They roasted in the most delectable mixture of honey, balsamic vinegar, brown sugar, cinnamon, lemon zest, and just a little salt. The lemon zest and salt kept the mixture from becoming too sweet!

Once the figs roasted and completely cooled, it was time to make the creamy mixture for the balsamic fig yogurt popsicles. All I did was combine the fig mixture, including the lovely juices, with yogurt, almond milk and vanilla in my food processor. Then I pureed it until it was luscious and smooth.

After that, it was just a matter of scooping that luscious mixture into molds. I found a set for a very reasonable price on Amazon here. The amount of mixture I made was perfect for filling the 6 molds to the brim. I could have also just used large paper cups with popsicle sticks and yielded more!

The balsamic fig yogurt popsicles needed to freeze for at least 5 hours, but I let them freeze overnight to be safe. It worked out perfectly so that I could try one during the worst of the midday heat! Oh my goodness, these babies were special. They were so creamy from the yogurt and milk. That gorgeous fig mixture cut right through it though to make it all work together gloriously. It was the perfect summer treat! Enjoy, and stay cool friends!
