These raspberry yogurt pops are addicting. I could eat all of them in one sitting. Every single one. I wouldn’t even feel guilty. That probably has something to do with the fact that it only has three ingredients. All of them healthy.
I promise I’m not turning into a health food blogger. Although I don’t mind the occasionally healthy meal. This one really just happened to work in my favor. I took a look in my fridge and pulled out what I had on hand. Just like that these addicting pops were born!
Yogurt Popsicle Ingredients
One of the best parts of this recipe is how short the ingredient list is. With just a handful of basic items you can whip up a treat that is wow worthy. Even my picky eater gives this the stamp of approval.
- Yogurt: I use plain Greek yogurt, because it’s what we have on hand most of the time. You could easily swap this for a classic yogurt or even a flavored variety.
- Sweetener: This is optional, and best used when you are using a plain yogurt. Flavored yogurts will already have sugar and will need less sweetener added. I really like honey or agave.
- Fruit: There are nearly endless possibilities for fruit additions in these popsicles. Our favorite? Raspberries.
- Lime Juice: Optional, but adds a delightful tang that takes these from good to great.
How To Make Popsicles With Yogurt
This raspberry popsicle has stolen my heart. I even have a hard time sharing with my husband. I hid them in the back of the freezer under the vegetables to keep them tucked away from searching eyes. Does that make me just the worst person?
This recipe could not be any easier. Mix, freeze, and enjoy!
- PREP: Mix together the yogurt and honey. Add the lime juice if you are looking for a nice citrus zing.
- MIX: Fold in the frozen berries as quickly as possible.
- FREEZE: Pour the mix into a popsicle mold with sticks and freeze solid.
- Popsicle Molds: There are dozens of different options out there. Currently, we are really loving silicone popsicle molds (affiliate). They are easier to maneuver when releasing the frozen pops.
- Mixing Bowl: Specifically, a mixing bowl with a pour spout (affiliate). This makes it ten times easier to get the liquid into your molds.
- Silicone Whisk: Easily in the top 10 of my favorite kitchen items. Silicone whisks (affiliate) won’t scratch pans and scrape the sides of the bowl perfectly.
This recipe is perfect for flavor variations! Here are a few of our favorites:
MIXED BERRY: Mixed berries with vanilla yogurt
TROPICAL: Pineapple and Mango with Coconut Yogurt
PEACHY KEEN: ripe peaches with vanilla yogurt
RASPBERRY LEMONADE: fresh raspberries, lemon juice, and lemon zest with plain yogurt
You can use various types of yogurt for popsicles based on your preferences. Whether it’s regular yogurt, Greek yogurt, dairy-free yogurt, or flavored yogurt, each will offer a slightly different taste and texture to your popsicles. Experiment with different yogurt options to discover your favorite combination.
Generally, it takes about 4 to 6 hours for yogurt popsicles to freeze completely.
Yes. Either version will work fine for this recipe.
Homemade yogurt popsicles can typically last in the freezer for about 1 to 2 months. However, for the best taste and texture, I recommend to consume them within the first month.
