Greek Yogurt Fruit Popsicles, because Summer and a cold treat go hand-in-hand, don’t they? When you add a bit of fruit, some delicious greek yogurt and a little bit of freeze time, you make a delicious and nutritious treat that is sure to keep you cool during the hottest parts of the day.
You could say that these popsicles are perfect for getting kiddos to get their daily fruit servings in. But, who are we kidding? These tastyGreek Yogurt Fruit Popsicles are so good, you’ll have a hard time sharing.
The beauty of this recipe is that it can be made way ahead of time. You can take these babies with you to:
- The park
- The next BBQ you are invited to (hello, potluck treat)
- On a hike
- To a baby shower
- To the pool
Basically anywhere and everywhere you want a sweet treat that also helps you keep cool in the smoldering heat.
And if you’re really into popsicles (and a little booze too) you’ll love these rum & coke boozy popsicles.
Side note: you’ll want to pack lots and lots of ice to keep these bad boys frozen.
Now that I’ve gotten your attention you should know – we only tried to use the best of the best ingredients for this recipe. Fresh (not frozen) fruit nicely chopped.
Although, I am sure if you really want to, you could use the frozen fruit and it will turn out just fine.
For this recipe we ended up using about 1 cup of each fruit including: strawberries, blueberries, orange, and kiwi. You can completely play around with this recipe and use more tropical fruits if you’d like.
There really is no wrong way of making greek yogurt fruit popsicles just ensure you have the main ingredients – greek yogurt and fruit!
Once your fruit is prepared, it’s really a matter of throwing this all into your popsicle molds and freezing it for the day.
By the way, if you are looking to make this really easy on yourself, I hands down recommend the Ozera Reusable Popsicle Molds because they are reusable but also I love the way they stand up on display.
Freeze, freeze, and freeze again. This is probably the hardest part because it requires patience.
Then when they are frozen, serve em’ up!
If you are using them for a party like we did, place them on a tray of ice and out of sun.
Tasty and deliciously cool treat here you come!
- 1 tub plain Greek yogurt
- ⅓ cup almond milk (can use soy milk as substitution for those with allergies)
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- Your choice of fruit. I used 1 cup each of strawberry, blueberry, orange, and kiwi
- ½ tsp sugar each for any fruit you use
- Blend together Greek yogurt, almond milk and vanilla extract. Set aside.
- Cut/peel/prepare your strawberries and blueberries. Combine with your sugar in a small pan and heat 5-7 minutes until it cooks down to a jam-like texture. (This is optional, you can also use fresh fruit blended into a puree)
- For your orange and kiwi, peel, cut, and mash with a fork until you have a thick, chunky texture.
- To build your pops, alternate layers of fruit and yogurt until you are at the top. Take a butter knife, and poke down into your molds a few times each to give it a tie-dye look.
- Freeze overnight.
