Frozen Yogourt Kulfi Pops

Frozen Yogourt Kulfi Pop

I have a weakness for frozen treats.  Unfortunately, my metabolism isn’t what it used to be, so I came up with a healthier option for one my favourite Indian desserts – Kulfi.

When I found out how many calories and saturated fat were in kulfi, I was like no way am I ever eating that again!  Well, maybe not ever…. but I do think that kulfi needs to be made in a healthier way so that it can be enjoyed more often!

Frozen yogourt is huge right now since if offers a creamy texture to frozen desserts with far less calories than the average ice cream.  So, with a little experimentation, I developed my very own recipe for frozen yogourt kulfi pops.  Check out the nutritional info below.  Only 141 calories per popsicle!  So you can make these for the hot summer months that are approaching and feel absolutely no guilt when you indulge.  They even have a ton of calcium which is an added bonus!

Most kulfi recipes involve pistachios.  Noah, my son, is deathly allergic to them and I can’t even keep them in the house.  But I think if you add a quarter cup of pistachios to the mix, these kulfi pops will taste even more incredible.


The image below is what your mixture should look like right before you pour it into the popsicle moulds.  Notice how frothy it looks.  The key is to whisk it up really good and make sure there are absolutely no lumps of yogourt.

After freezing overnight, you can remove the popsicles from the mould.  Its a good idea to run the mould under very hot water for about 30 seconds to loosen them.  Trust me, it’ll make things a lot easier!

And there you have, it!  Guilt free kulfi. Enjoy!
