Recipe: Malted nectarine yogurt popsicles


A melty, messy, hot-weather remedy that's simply too good to resist.

A sweltering July day, bare feet in the grass, cicadas singing... the whole scene calls for a treat that embodies a bit of that nostalgia. We've got you covered with this refreshing yogurt pop that brings back the magic of childhood summer holidays.



  • 6 cups peeled and chopped fresh nectarines
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 3/4 cup vanilla yogurt
  • 1/2 cup malted milk drink mix, such as Ovaltine


1 Place the nectarines, sugar and lemon juice in a large skillet over medium-high heat and cook until fruit has softened.

2 Remove from the heat and puree the mixture in ai blender until smooth. Transfer the puree to a bowl and chill in the refrigerator until completely cooled, about 2 hours.

3 In a small bowl, combine the yogurt with the malted milk drink mix.

4 Stir until combined.

5 In another small bowl, loosely stir together about 5 tablespoons of the nectarine puree with 1 tablespoon of the yogurt mixture.

6 Transfer this mixture to a pop mould.

7 Repeat with the remaining puree and yogurt mixture until all the moulds are filled.

8 Once all the moulds are filled, insert a Popsicle stick into the centre of each mould.

9 Place the moulds in the freezer and chill until the pops are solid, about 8 hours of overnight. Keep frozen until ready to serve.

Makes 10 (1/2 cup) popsicles.
