Thankfully, there is not a lot of ‘cooking’ involved in this recipe. If you feel that you are not a ‘Suzy Homemaker,’ then do not worry. You can definitely tackle this orange cream pop recipe. You just need to be able to boil some water. That is the extent of cooking that is done. Once you bring some water to a boil, you will pour this over the orange gelatin powder in a bowl as you mix. Allow the mixture to get to room temperature before you mix in the other ingredients. Once it has reached room temperature, you will then combine the yogurt, milk and vanilla to the orange gelatin mixture. Stir until everything is well combined.

Place the top of the molds or the wooden popsicle sticks with some aluminum foil onto the molds or paper cups. Place the molds in the freezer. You need to allow the pops to freeze until they have become firm enough to hold their shape. That is it! You have a delicious treat for you and nine of your friends or enough pops for you and a few of your friends to have more than one.
