It’s time for Apple Pie Popsicles! Honeycrisp (or your favorite) apples combine with Greek yogurt to make these delicious frozen treats to help you transition from Summer to Fall.
Living in the south means the later months of the year can be unseasonably warm. Instead of digging out our scarves, sweaters, and boots, we are still wearing flip-flops and shorts!
Whether the fall season in your town is warm or cool this fall, this Apple Pie Popsicles Recipe will fill your mouth with fresh and bright flavors!
Apples Equal Fall
Growing up in the north, the beautiful fall leaves would fall right on time. This meant before we would be trudging through the snow while we walked to school, we’d be jumping in huge piles of leaves! Whenever those leaves began to fall, we knew we’d have tons of apples in our house!
My humble opinion about apples is that they are a superfood! Don’t you love the huge variety of crisp, bright and refreshing flavors they bring? Life is incomplete if you haven’t pulled a wagon of apples behind you at an apple picking farm!
What in the World Is A Root Cellar?!
Unlike many houses on our street, we had something very special…a root cellar. Root cellar a foreign concept to you? It is simply a small underground or partially underground storage room. Oftentimes you would find a root cellar just off the basement like in our home.
In older times, storing fresh foods like fruit and vegetables, nuts, and seeds was crucial, especially in places of extreme cold or warmth. By being underground, root cellars are the perfect place to protect food from the heat so they can last longer.
So Many Apples, So Many Recipes
When we went apple picking, my mom would can about 75% of our haul. The rest was used as snacks for us and to share with the neighbors. Guess where Mom stored all those cans of apples? In the root cellar!
This made way for so many delicious apple recipes. Of all the recipes mom made with apples, I wish she would have thought about making fresh fruit popsicles with them! We would have devoured these Apple Pie Popsicles! See how incredibly easy these yogurt-filled popsicles are to make!
For our recipe we used Honeycrisp apples because of their sweet, crisp flavor. Other apple varieties that also work well are SweeTango, Jazz, Pink Lady and Ambrosia – but go ahead and use whatever apples you have on hand!
